Coming from an adventurous family, Blanca spent a long time on the road as a childMy parents are rock climbers and I used to ask them why we weren’t like other kids and went to the beach instead, until finally they agreed to do it half and half.
I remember with special warmth the picnics in incredible places after we’d hiked all day, hunting tadpoles by the lake and the stories I asked my mother to tell me as we hiked.’
As a child, Blanca performed at the Triton Theater in several children’s plays. She has an older brother named Pedro Martinez Suarez.
Blanca chose to use her mother’s maiden name as her artistic name. While studying at university, Blanca was discovered by casting director Luis San Narciso, who offered her a debut role in 2007 in “The Boarding School”. She dropped out of college to appear in this series where she plays the character of Julia Medina, one of her most unforgettable roles.
The show ended in 2010, while simultaneously appearing in several films such as “Shiver”, “The Consul of Sodom”, “Neon Flesh” and the short “Hemisphere”.

Starring Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya, Blanca received a nomination at the acclaimed Goya Awards as “Best New Actress” for this film.
Then she was cast in the series “The Boat” – originally titled “El Bote”.

In 2017, she landed one of the most important roles of her career when she was cast as Lidia Aguilar in ‘Cable Girls’.

Blanca’s beauty has led her to work as a model with various brands such as Angel Schlesser, Samsung, Jaguar, Guerlain, Adidas and Royal Bliss. However, she spoke to the Spanish magazine Elpais in 2014 about her career as a model: ‘I care about appearance. In this profession it is important, but it does not obsess me. I’m not Gisele Bundchen and my ass is out of shape. I do these collaborations because my looks are useful… But I’m aware that I’m not a model’.
From 2008 to 2010, Blanca maintained a romantic relationship with Javier Pereira, actor in “Stockholm”. The following year, she began dating the protagonist of “Velvet”, actor Miguel Angel Silvestre.
The couple were together for three years, until rumors of separation surfaced when they separately attended the 2014 Goya Awards, which was confirmed when they announced their split the following week. It was speculated that Blanca left Silvestre to date singer Dani Martin, who also broke up with his girlfriend at the time, and these rumors were confirmed when Martin and Suarez started dating in February 2014, albeit for a short while.
In 2015, Blanca fell in love again, with Joel Bosqued, but the relationship ended in 2017 – in 2020, Bosqued announced his engagement to Selene Ramal, but spoke briefly about Suarez in an interview: “We have the same agent. I know her because I see her everywhere.”
In March 2018, she began another relationship, with Mario Casas, whom she described as her “icon”. The couple, who were friends for years until they decided to date, ended their romance in October 2019 after nearly two years together.
In 2020, Suarez found love again, when she was spotted kissing actor Javier Rey, with whom she collaborated in the movie “El Verano que Vivimos”.
In 2017, Blanca stated, ‘I totally agree that it (feminism) is a trend, right now we’re even making t-shirts about it. I think it’s good that it’s gained momentum because it’s always welcome to fix things that haven’t been solved yet.”
She also stated to El Mundo about the role of feminism in “Cable Girls”: ‘Feminism can be considered as another character in the series’ (…) ‘I don’t think the series was conceived with that feminism motto .
