Sofía Vergara has been a household name in Latin America long before she scored her 2009 role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family,” which is entering into it’s tenth season. Her acting, beauty, and personality earned her the top spot as the world’s highest paid TV actress for the sixth year in a row. And not by a small margin. She earns $15 million more than the second highest paid actor, earning $41.5 million last year alone.
Long before she became one of the most influential Latinas in Hollywood, Vergara was just a young girl trying to win over the graces of the nuns at her Barranquilla, Colombia high school. From her first photo shoot at 11 years old to telenovelas, travel shows and even surviving cancer, Vergara has barely aged.
