Latino Crossover Stars

Sofia Vergara


This funny female got her start hosting Spanish-language television programs, including two on Univision in the late 1990’s. After a few not-so great roles in American movies (“Soul Plane” and “Chasing Papi” among them, ouch!) she found herself in the hit ABC sitcom “Modern Family”. The part rocketed the Colombian bombshell to accolades and turned hers into a household name. She has been making American audiences laugh for 6 seasons (going on 7) and has earned herself an Emmy nom for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She’s come a long way, here’s hoping we see more of this beauty in the future.
