Sofia Vergara

She’s on one of the most successful sitcoms in the United States, but her roots are elsewhere. Sofia has persevered through a number of challenges to get to where she is today, and she does it with a smile on her face. From acting to promoting the things she cares about, there’s plenty to learn about the 45-year-old actress. Read on to see where she got her start, what she’s up to now (you know, besides ruling the sitcom world), and where to keep up with her on social media.

Sofia Vergara Bio

Sofia was born in Colombia and spent many years pursuing other dreams before a chance encounter changed the path she’d laid out for herself. Interestingly enough, that seems to happen a lot with some of the biggest success stories, so one could learn from Sofia’s story.

She originally was in school, following a medical track that would see her nearing the completion of a Dentistry program. A family tragedy and sudden new opportunities would find her quitting school to try her luck in the entertainment business. That would take her to Miami, then to L.A. before she’d reach massive success in the English-speaking market, something that was made a little more difficult because of her trademark accent. She wouldn’t work to hide it, though, embracing it as a part of the package.

Sofia Vergara Movies and TV Shows

Sofia’s first gig was a commercial she did as a teenager, and she’d continue modeling through the years. However, her first credited acting role on Wiki was in a Mexican telenovela. She’d do some hosting in the Spanish market before landing her first English gig with Baywatch. Several years later, she had regular gigs in both film and television.
Obviously, her most famous role is as Ed O’Neill’s wife on Modern Family. The quirky series has not only won over TV audiences, it’s also won a lot of awards since its premiere in 2009. Her most recent award for the series is a People’s Choice for Best TV Comedy Actress.
