Funny thing about Ms. Sofia: She is a natural blond. After months of auditioning without any success in Hollywood, she took a risk and dyed her hair dark. "I'm a natural blond. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent -- but I had blond hair. It was ignorance: They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek," she explained. It seemed to have worked. She started landing TV gigs left and right once she said adios to her blond hair.
