Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara is a Colombian-American actress, producer, television host, model and businesswoman. Vergara was widely known for co-hosting two television shows for Spanish-language television network Univisión in the late 1990s. Her first notable acting job in English was in the film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in other films, including Four Brothers and two Tyler Perry films—Meet the Browns and Madea Goes to Jail, receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter. Vergara’s success on television has earned her roles in recent films The Smurfs, New Year’s Eve, Happy Feet Two, The Three Stooges, Escape from Planet Earth, Machete Kills, Chef, and Hot Pursuit. In 2012 and 2013, she was the top-earning actress on US television. Vergara is naturally blonde hair, although for movies and television, she is sometimes asked to dye it brown to make her look more stereotypically Hispanic. Vergara stars on the ABC series Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, for which she has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards. In 2014, she was ranked as the 32nd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.
