Fernando Lujan is a Mexican actor, born in Mexico City, Mexico.

His father; Alejandro Ciangherotti, brother Alejandro Ciangherotti, Jr., wife Martha Mariana Castro and son Fernando Ciangherotti are also actors. He is not related to actress Daniela Lujan.

Acting career

He started his acting career as a child in the Cinema of Mexico credited as "Fernando Ciangherotti" but changed his stage name to "Fernando Lujan" a few years later. After appearing in more than eight films, mostly light comedies, he obtained a role in the telenovela Cuatro en la trampa at age twenty-three. The next eighteen years, he alternated his film career with television, culminating with the worldwide famous production Los ricos tambien lloran. The next twelve years he did not participate in telenovelas and only starred in four films. He returned to television with Vida robada and Cadenas de amargura in 1991.

After participating in three other telenovelas for Televisa in the next five years, he signed a contract with TV Azteca to co-star with Angelica Aragon in the second telenovela of that new network titled Mirada de mujer. This telenovela was a success and would produce a sequel six years later. After Mirada de mujer he obtained significant roles in film, especially as the star of the film-version of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's book No One Writes to the Colonel in 1999 (El coronel no tiene quien le escriba). His performance in this film was qualified as "remarkable" by The New York Times. In 2005 he was received the Ariel Award by the Mexican Academy of Film in honor to his career and contributions to film.
