The Colombia native and Modern Family star has had a long career in modeling and television. Sofia was raised in a strict Catholic home, and her beliefs nearly kept her from pursuing modeling and television. She eventually left her major in pre-dentistry when her Catholic schoolteachers gave her permission to model. She has since decided to be more "laid back" about her religion, but still practices the Catholicism of her upbringing. She fought and won a battle with Thyroid cancer.
