America Georgine Ferrera (born April 18, 1984 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress of Honduran descent. Her first film credit, Real Women Have Curves, was a Cult Classic that was praised for dealing with the Hollywood Pudgy trope, and she starred as Carmen in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (a role she reprised in its sequel). She then gained widespread renown for starring as the titular character on Ugly Betty. Ferrera voiced Astrid in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise and currently produces and stars in Superstore. She is also the executive producer of Gentefied.
