THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
The youngest daughter of Honduran parents, Ferrera, 28, earned her first TV role on Disney’s Gotta Kick It Up! in 2002. That same year, she nabbed attention with her star turn in the indie film Real Women Have Curves, sharing a special jury prize with co-star Lupe Ontiveros at Sundance. Her visibility increased with 2005’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the lead on ABC’s Ugly Betty. During the show’s six-season run, she earned an Emmy and a Golden Globe. On the big screen, she has roles in the upcoming End of Watch and Chavez. In addition to a recent arc on CBS’ The Good Wife, she provided voice-overs for Nickelodeon’s Dragons: Riders of Berk, a role she originated in DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon.
