As part of the ensemble cast on the surprise sleeper hit "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006-2010), actress Ana Ortiz drew raves for what might easily have been a throwaway supporting role as Betty's older, more traditionally attractive sister, Hilda. An alumnus of the LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts and Philadelphia's University of the Arts, she refined her acting technique in several theatrical productions in Philadelphia and New York prior to making the move to television. Early roles included a supporting part in "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman: The Movie" (CBS, 1999) and a brief stint as a cast member on "Kristin" (NBC, 2001). Other guest spots and failed television projects followed, until Ortiz at last struck gold when she won the role of Hilda on "Ugly Betty." While not a series lead, she gained notoriety with the strength of her performance and the undeniable chemistry between herself and co-star, America Ferrera. Lauded by critics and fans for its positive portrayal of Latinos, the show became a certified hit during the first three years of its run. After "Betty" had left the air, Ortiz continued to appear in projects like the feature comedy "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" (2011), further expanding an already impressive Hollywood résumé.
