The lovely Sofia Vergara.

My earliest memories of the lovely and ageless Sofia Vergara are of her strutting around acting crazy on Fuera de Serie,  on Spanish-language television.  I was tween in those days and she looked exactly as caliente as she does today.  Exactly!  Who would have thought that almost two decades later she would be America’s new “It” girl?  I don’t even think she could have ever imagined so much success for herself.

Since her breakout role in ABC’s Modern Family, however, the colombiana has been on everything from Tyler Perry’s Madea movies to Cover Girl commercials all over the tube these days.

She’s made her comedic timing and that lovely accent her celebrity stamp, and I for one am bien orgulloso of what she’s done for people with accents from all over the world.  What inspires me the most about Vergara is that she’s taken something that a lot of us see as an obstacle and made it into something that is now the main reason so many people have fallen in love with her, both as an actress and as a person.  ¡Bien hecho, Sofia!  These are a few of my favorite Vergara clips from the web:
