Celebrity siblings: Sofia Vergara’s sister Sandra steps out

By Sarah Kelsey

If there was ever a doubt that good looks are genetic, may we present you with this image of Sandra Vergara -- the cousin and adopted sister of Modern Family star Sofia Vergara.

The 26-year-old actress showed up at the 2014 Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards on Sunday evening wearing a black, netted, floor-length gown, ruby red lips and a slick updo. Talk about jaw-dropping.

This was one of few red carpet appearances for Sandra, whose most recent film credits include the Colin Farrell horror film Fright Night and the action movie God Bless America. In 2013, she had recurring roles on The Bold and the Beautiful and CSI.

In several interviews, including one very pointed one with celestrellas.com, the actress discussed her relationship with Sophia and the pressure she feels to make it on her own in Hollywood.


“There’s really not much anyone can do to help another person. For me, leveraging is a myth. She did it on her own. I’ll do it on my own. That’s how it is,” she said. “She is beloved by the public, and so being related to someone who is so dear is a good thing.”

This brought to mind the many A-list actors and actresses who have siblings who are just as good looking and talented as they are.
