America the Beautiful
The bright young star of Ugly Betty is a real beauty
Picture a young woman with unattractive glasses, thick eyebrows and a smile that reveals a mouth full of braces. This discription can't fit the lead character in a popular TV series, can it? Well, it can! And it does.
Meet America Ferrera, star of the hit American comedy-drama Ugly Betty. Ferrera portrays plain Betty Suarez, a hard-working assistant at a fashion magazine. Even though Betty is surrounded by models, her inner beauty more than makes up for her imperfect appearance. Her good heart – and her refusal to be something she's not – allow her to succeed.
Born in Los Angeles in 1984 to Honduran parents, Ferrera is the youngest of six children. Ferrera knew from age 7, when she landed a role in a school play, that she wanted to be a performer. Her mother, however, insisted that America pursue other interests. She didn't doubt her daughter's talent but worried that an acting career wouldn't be easy for a young Latina.
