In 1993, when she got the offer to play Monica in the seminal Corazon salvaje, a role she meant to decline, but accepted after much convincing from her brother. The series was seen across the world to much acclaim and helped revitalize her career in the 1990s. The series gained much press from the speculations that people made about both Edith and her co-star. While the series was being filmed, it was rumored that she was dating her co-starr Eduardo Palomo. Both denied the rumors, stating that they were only friends.
After she finished filming Corazon salvaje, she became a bit selective of the roles she was offered, having appeared in a small number of series and films. Unfortunately, none of the follow up soaps she did after Corazon Salvaje were successful. 1995's La Sombra Del Otro was an instant flop.
