Sofia Vergara: We Ain't Sayin' She's a "Coal Digger"

On the surface, Sofia Vergara is the insanely beautiful and incredibly funny actress who plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s hit sitcom “Modern Family.” But there are many layers to the Columbian bombshell.

We’ve all seen that Vergara is great at comedy – not only in her “MF” role as Ed O’Neill’s sexy and spirited wife, but in 2007’s the far-too-short-lived show “The Knights of Prosperity.” She also has musical talents, playing Mama Morton in “Chicago” on Broadway (the role that would earn Queen Latifah her Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 2002). She was the Executive Producer of the Spanish version of “Desperate Housewives.” And, she went to school to study dentistry.

We’re glad she gave up the “spit, rinse, repeat” business to play everyone’s favorite “coal digger.”

The cast and creative team behind ABC's "Modern Family" gathered for a panel discussion and screening at the Television Academy on March 3. Sophia looked stunning in a dark plum summer dress with a plunging neckline.

Emmy magazine's Editor-in-Chief Juan Morales asked Sofia about taking the role of Gloria in this video that was shot and edited by the Pop Culture Passionistas for the Archive of American Television.
