America Ferrera became a full-fledged star in 2006 with her less-than-glamorous role as Betty Suarez on the hit ABC primetime soap “Ugly Betty.” Her moving performance has earned her critical raves and accolades alike, including Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Emmy awards in 2007. The youngest daughter of Honduran parents, Ferrera was raised in Los Angeles and began acting in school plays and community theater at the tender age of eight.
Her Hollywood debut came in 2002 in the Disney Channel original movie “Gotta Kick it Up!” but she first gained the attention of critics and moviegoers in the successful independent film “Real Woman Have Curves.” She landed roles in the teen films “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and “Lords of Dogtown” before being cast in her career-making role on “Ugly Betty,” the American version of the Colombian telenovela “Betty La Fea” executive produced by Salma Hayek.
