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.
