Biography for Sofia Vergara
Sofía Margarita Vergara (born Jul. 10, 1972 (39 years ago)) is a Colombian model, actress and entrepreneur. Since she was raised bilingual in English and Spanish, this has been an expedient in her making the transition from being a performer in Latin America in Spanish to becoming one in the United States in the English language. Dubbed "Sofia Viagra", Vergara was already rather well-known in North America from her modeling work, and her first notable acting job in English was in the movie Chasing Papi.

Vergara was discovered by a photographer while walking on a Colombian beach. Soon she was presented with attractive offers in modeling and TV work, and she considered accepting them. Having been raised rather conservatively and religiously, this was confusing at first. According to an article in the Jan. 2002 (9 years ago) issue of Maxim, Vergara was "apprehensive about doing her first TV commercial—until her

Catholic schoolteachers gave her their personal permission to take the assignment." Vergara made her first appearance as a performer at the age of 17 in a Pepsi commercial that was widely broadcast in Latin America. In order to support her son, mother, and younger siblings who needed her financial support in the absence of her father, who had left the family, Vergara dropped out of college to earn an income.

Vergara moved to Bogotá at age 20, where she worked as a model on the runway and on TV. From 1995 (16 years ago) to 1999 (12 years ago), she was co-host with Fernando Fiore on Fuera de Serie ("Out of the Ordinary" or "Over-the-Top"), a travel series that sent her to exotic places around the world. It was telecast on the international Univision Spanish-language TV network, and it made her a star in the Latin American market. It also gave Vergara TV exposure in the United States via the Univision stations there. She co-hosted the Univision show A que no te atreves ("I Dare You"). She appeared as a guest star in the season-four opening of the HBO series Entourage.

Besides runway and catalog modeling work, Vergara did independent projects. She was photographed for posters and swimsuit calendars in 1998 (13 years ago), 2000 (11 years ago), and 2002 (9 years ago).

Vergara is 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in) tall, and she has naturally light brown/sunbleached-blonde hair (for movies and TV, she is sometimes asked to color it brunette to make her look more typically Latina). Vergara was under an exclusive TV contract with Univision for several years, and after it expired she accepted a role with the ABC network in the United States. Vergara appeared on the ABC situation comedies Hot Properties and The Knights of Prosperity. She is set to star in the sitcom Modern Family starting in sep. 2009 (2 years ago).

Vergara plays Alicia Oviedo in the Colombian version of the TV show Desperate Housewives, which is called Amas de Casa Desesperadas. She also appears on the ABC drama Dirty Sexy Money as Jeremy Darling's love interest. Vergara has made guest appearances in the Mexican telenovela Fuego En La Sangre.

Personal life
Vergara was born in Barranquilla, Atlantico, Colombia. Her mother is a homemaker and her father produced cattle for the meat industry. "Toti" was the nickname given to Vergara by her five brothers and sisters and many cousins, including TV news anchor and reporter Carlos Vergara, who works for WTVJ in Miami, Florida. She grew up in her hometown of Barranquilla and was raised in a well-off family, attending a private bilingual Spanish/English school. Vergara was married at the age of 18 to her childhood sweetheart, and she gave birth to her son Manolo in 1992 (19 years ago) at the age of 20. After the break-up of her marriage, Vergara studied pre-dentistry at a university in Colombia for three years. Then, many opportunities arose to work in modeling and in show business, and Vergara decided to pursue these in Latin America. Soon she decided to move to Miami, Florida, to take advantage of opportunites and to move away from unrest in Colombia (her older brother had been murdered in 1998 (13 years ago) during an attempt to kidnap him that went awry). She brought her son, mother, and sister with her.
