Her first production was the Mexican movie ‘El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba,’ which became Mexico’s official entry at the ‘Oscars’ in the ‘Best Foreign Film’ category.
She was also the executive producer of ‘Ugly Betty.’ Her guest role as Sofia Reyes in ‘Ugly Betty’ won her a nomination for ‘Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series’ at the 59th ‘Primetime Emmy Awards.’
