Founder / Partner / Producer / Actress

Sofia Vergara solidified her reign as the queen of the small screen in 2017 as the only woman from either film or TV to crack Forbes’ Celebrity 100 (No. 58).

A gifted comic talent with an irresistible screen presence, the Colombian star of ABC’s “Modern Family” took home $41.5 million. More than half of that came from lucrative endorsement deals with the likes of Head & Shoulders, Ninja Coffee Bar, and Careisma (for which she fronts her own line of medical scrubs). The deals have helped make Vergara a bona fide brand in her own right, tapping into her ability to conquer both English- and Spanish-speaking markets. That reach extends to Latin World Entertainment, the talent management and entertainment-marketing firm she co-founded.

Born in Barranquilla, Colombia, Vergara rose to prominence as hostess of the Univision travel series “Fuera de Serie” and was already well-known to Latino audiences when she landed her first major American feature role, in 2003’s “Chasing Papi.” With the debut of “Modern Family” in 2009, she became a star.
