He was 21 years old and had just started his career in the world of cinema. His debut had come seven years earlier with a small role alongside Carmen Maura and Rosario Flores in Scrap (1991) and the news of her nomination and victory were totally unexpected for her. After that recognition, the Barcelona actress chained some works in films such as Krampack (2000), by Cesc Gay; Paul and his brother (2001); defrost (2003); The triumph (2006) o Lies and fats (2009), but always with supporting roles.
During those years, Orozco lived halfway between Madrid and Ibiza, an island that she fell in love with when, as a child, she accompanied her father who worked as a photographer at the Pachá nightclub. Hooked on its nature and its beaches, ended up settling there for eight yearsa time during which he began to separate himself from the film industry and environment. The birth of their first and only child in 2010 he also changed his priorities and, little by little, he began to disappear from the scene.
