Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara, born July 10, 1972 in Barranquilla, Colombia, is a Colombian actress, comedienne, television host, and model.
Vergara had been 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 2003 film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in films, including two Tyler Perry films, Meet the Browns (2008) and Madea Goes to Jail (2009), receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter. Vergara's success on television has earned her roles in recent films, The Smurfs (2011), New Year's Eve (2011), Happy Feet Two (2011) The Three Stooges: The Movie (2012), and Escape from Planet Earth (2013).
In 2012 and 2013, she was one of the top-earning actors on US television. Vergara starred on the ABC series Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, for which she was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.

She's been married to actor Joe Manganiello since 2015.
"Tropes asociados con las obras de Sofia Vergara":
- Large Ham: Her combination of Motor Mouth and No Indoor Voice means that any character she plays tends to be rather bombastic.
- Mum Looks Like a Sister: She had her son (and only child), Manolo, when she was around 18 or 19—in a lot of pictures showing them together, Vergara looks young enough to pass for his sister. Vergara has also remarked that she and Manolo have been mistaken for a couple quite a few times (for people who don't realize that they're related).
- No Indoor Voice: As Gloria Pritchett on Modern Family and just about any character she's played since then.
- Real Women Have Curves: As she says in the commercial for her "Sofia by Sofia Vergara" collection at Kmart:"You can't draw a woman with straight lines, no straight lines."
- Spicy Latina: Often her roles fit the beautiful Hispanic lady, with the fiery temper.
