Sofia Vergara Biography
Vergara was born in Barranquilla, Columbia in July of 1972. Her family members affectionately called her Toti. She attended Marymount School Barranquilla, which is a private bilingual English/Spanish school. She also attended a university in Colombia where she studied dentistry, but dropped out just two semesters short of obtaining a degree to pursue a career in acting and modeling. She did some modeling when she was 17 but decided that she needed to go to the US to find real success and moved to Miami, Florida.
Her hosting debut was a very popular travel series, Fuera de Serie. Her performance on the 1995 American Comedy Awards launched her into Hollywood stardom. During the late 1990’s, she was well known for co-hosting television shows for the Spanish language television network Univision. Her first notable acting job where she mainly spoke English was the film Chasing Papi in 2003. She has since appeared in numerous other films including Four Brothers, Meet the Browns, and Madea Goes to Jail.
She is considered to be one of the sexiest women in Hollywood and was named AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman of 2012. Vergara has out-earned stars such as Eva Longoria and Kim Kardashian, mostly thanks to her role on the ABC sitcom Modern Family. Vergara also has lucrative endorsement deals including Burger King, Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, AT&T, as well as her own clothing line at Kmart, as well as income from her own media company, Latin World Entertainment. In 2012 and again in 2013, Vergara was the top-earning actress on American television.
Vergara earns a reported $325,000 per episode of Modern Family and recently launched her own perfume line. Although Vergara was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2000, after successfully undergoing treatment, she has resumed her career without incident. This bombshell actress is now an American Citizen with a net worth of $85 million.
