In addition, he starred in other successful melodramas such as “Nunca te olvidaré” (1999), “Salomé” (2001) and “Doña Bárbara” (2008).
In 2004 González had a daughter with the politician of the conservative National Action Party (PAN) Santiago Creel, who recognized the relationship and his daughter in 2008.
Years after he married businessman Lorenzo Lazo, with whom he shared his last years of life.
