Highly attractive model-turned-actress, Talisa Soto was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Northampton, Massachusetts, but admittedly retains the Puerto Rican accent of her household. Soto walked into modeling when she was 15, working in Italy as well as for British VOGUE out of Paris. Despite a successful modeling career that saw her land the covers of Vogue, Glamour and Mademoiselle, among others, she yearned to act. Returned to States, her break came as India, the Puerto Rican girlfriend, in "Spike in Bensonhurst" (1988). The next year, she was Bond Girl Lupe Lamora in "License to Kill." TV work followed, including the USA network movie "Silhouette" (1990) and the HBO anthology, "Prison Stories: Women Behind Bars" (1991), in which Soto's dramatic skills were on display. Although she had supporting parts in the films "The Mambo Kings" (1992) and the direct-to-video "Hostage" (also 1992), Soto continued to try her hand at TV in the series "Harts of the West" (CBS, 1993-94). In the latter, she was featured as the granddaughter of a Native American owner of the town's general store.
