A:I come from DOMINICAN Republic. I'm from Santo Domingo, the city.
Q:DR! Why did you get into acting?
A:It's so funny how I got into acting because I knew ever since I was a little girl that I loved to entertain! I wanted to be on tv but never really thought of "acting". One day there was a casting call (in Puerto Rico) on the radio for Steven Spielberg's movie "Amistad" and they were looking for background people to play the role of slaves- and decided to go to the casting and I was picked. It was a super great experience just being part of that huge production and being able to be around of such a great director. It was hard to play a slave cause it reminded me of so many people in America that suffered, but It was an excellent experience to be able to challenge myself. I remember everyone on the crew used to tell me "you're the most beautiful slave I've ever seen" lol! So much fun- and I was also discover by my first agent.
Q:Where have you been featured as an actress?
A:I've been featured in different shows, here's some of them: Law and Order, Taxi Brooklyn, Nurse Jacky, 30 Rock, Family with Fire (telenovela) and more....
Q:Impressive! You also model. When did this begin?
A:Everything started with my modeling career in Puerto Rico, where I used to lived with my mom and my sisters. I was doing lot of TV commercials, print work, etc... Then I moved to NY, and I had to stop. It was very hard for me to continue with my career. The struggles when you first come to a country that you don't even know, not being able to speak the language and so many other situations I was going through back in that time, those were some of the reasons why I had to stop doing what I loved the most- "modeling". But God was always been there for me and one way or another I was back on track, this time more mature and sexy which helped me to get into the video vixen modeling world....
Q:You remain in photo shoot fresh shape. Tell us about your own workout routine and diet...
A:We all know In this business the look plays a big role so you have to be on top of your game to maintain your nice shape, and not only the shape but also health. I love working out, I work out at least 3 times a week and I include my cardio every time I hit the gym for about 30 to 45 minutes, and a use two dumbbells 2.5pounds to work on my arms while I'm either running, walking or on the bike. My schedule is crazy, so I have to do the most I can when I hit the gym! I always try to do a lil bit of everything. My legs, my back, arms and my abs. When it comes to diet- I don't really follow any diet, I love eating but I try to eat healthy which is hard when you have to be on set, - you have to be able to control yourself. I'm always careful with the calories, sugar, carbs etc... I love my greens, salads, proteins, green juice. And lastly I drink a glass of oatmeal water with lime first thing in the morning and before I go to bed. It's so good for you to lose weight naturally, it gives you energy, reduces cholesterol and promotes your heart health and so many other benefits.
Q:Friday night, what's on your usual agenda?
A:My Friday nights are mostly just chilling, dinner, maybe some wine. I'm not a drinker, but a glass or two the most, friends or home relaxing. Not too crazy about clubbing and stuff like that.
Q:What other projects are you working on?
A:Right now I'm studying, getting prepared, getting more knowledge about acting because it's not only about looking good- you have to be able to be ready when the big roles comes. I might be going to LA soon for some business meetings, I'll keep you posted on that.
Q:Make sure you do! Can you give us all of your social media handles?
A:I'm a social media freak lol especially Instagram which I'm on it 24/7! lol. You can follow me on:
