But before becoming a world star, the one born in Barranquilla, Colombia, had her history in Mexican melodramas. In fact, it was in this country where she debuted as an actress, without knowing that later her career would take an unexpected turn.
Sofía was 19 years old when she participated, for the first time, in a fiction. She had previously taken off as a commercial and catwalk model in Colombia. But it was in 1991 when producer Emilio Larrosa gave him the opportunity to appear in her soap opera, Muchachitas, which starred Kate del Castillo, Emma Laura, Tiaré Scanda and Cecilia Tijerina.
At that time, the artist only made a cameo, playing herself, but it helped her connect with the audience of Univisión, a television network that would open doors for her on its variety shows.
Four years later, Vergara returned to Mexico, but already with a powerful character in the telenovela Acapulco, cuerpo y alma, a production by José Alberto Castro in which she had scenes with Paty Manterola and Saúl Lisazo.
