Sofía Vergara’s Career

Sofía Vergara was discovered while strolling on a Colombian beach by a photographer who swiftly offered her modeling and TV opportunities. Initially hesitant about her first TV commercial, she gained approval from her Catholic school teachers, marking her debut at 17 in a Pepsi ad aired in Latin America. Studying at the Creative Workshops School of Acting, where Gloria Estefan had trained, Vergara had to opt out of Lee Daniels‘ film, “The Paperboy,” due to conflicting schedules with Modern Family‘s shoot. However, she starred in the Farrelly brothers‘ “The Three Stooges” and appeared in her son Manolo’s YouTube web series “Vida con Toty.”

Vergara excelled in the TV realm, topping Forbes’ list as the highest-earning woman in U.S. television, gracing People magazine‘s “50 Most Beautiful People” list, and being hailed by The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard among the most influential Latin women in Hollywood. Her accolades also include a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and multiple Primetime Emmy Award nominations for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family”.
