THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
Soto, 33, always admired Mexican actress Adriana Barraza, an Oscar nominee for her work in Babel. So when Soto was approached by Barraza in 2010 about starring on a Univision telenovela she was directing, Eva Luna, the answer was simple. As the title character, Soto played a woman who immigrated to California with her father and sister; the two-hour series-ender in 2011 was the highest-rated U.S.-produced telenovela finale to date with 6.9 million viewers. During its run, Eva Luna drew more viewers in the 18-to-49 demo than shows like CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. Says Soto: “People could identify with my character. She was a mark on the community in a good way.”
