Beatriz Taibo (March 10, 1932 – March 2, 2019) was an Argentinian film and TV actor.


Taibo was born in San Telmo in 1932.

In 1942 Taibo began to act at the age of ten on the radio programme La Pandilla Marilyn. She began to get work on the radio, as a host and broadcaster. From her time as an announcer she was left with the nickname "Moth", for because of the adverts she made for moth balls. Taibo would make her film debut in The Millions of Semillita in 1950 if the film had been released. Fittingly she was in a film based on a radio series which told the adventures of the Garcia family who moved.

In the 1960s she made some commercials for Lux soap. Taibo and Antonio Carrizo hosted a program on ratings leader Radio Belgrano, in which the duo became known for announcing advertisements in the form of a dialogue. Taibo, for example, might ask: "Traffic's at a standstill. What do you think happened?" to which Carrizo would answer "A Sunlight girl must have walked by!"

She appeared in the theatre, notably in the play Boeing-Boeing, which ran for four seasons and whose cast included Ernesto Bianco, Paulette Christian, Ambar La Fox, Osvaldo Miranda and her friend Nelly Beltrán.

In 1955 she appeared with Tita Merello in Para vestir santos (To Dress Saints), which was directed by Leopoldo Torre Nilsson. She and Yuki Nambá had supporting roles.

In the 1960s she was extending her acting to television, where she appeared in leading soaps such as Inconquistable Viviana Holguera, Adorable Professor Aldao and Juana Rebelde. She notably starred in Jorge Bellizzi and Abel Santa Cruz's Call Me Sparrow, a TV comedy where Taibo played a woman who had to pretend to be a man at work.
