Mexican actress and model Bárbara Mori was born on February 2nd, 1978 in Montevideo, Uruguay.
She gets her exotic looks from her Japanese-Uruguayan father and her Mexican mother.
When they divorced, Bárbara moved to Mexico and soon became a model, and that led to her start in acting in 1997.
She has appeared in several films and telenovelas, but her latest project is drawing a lot of international attention.
Japanese - Uruguayan - Mexican Bárbara will be starring in a Bollywood film called Kites with Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut.
And if that isn't international enough, there will be a 90 minute English version released in the United States, that will be edited by Brett Ratner ( the director of The Family Man, Red Dragon, the Rush Hour series, X-Men: The Last Stand and producer of Prison Break).
For her role in Kites, Barbara was nominated for the 2011 Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut in India, ironically eleven years after she made her film debut in Mexico.

Venezuelan actress Gabriela Spanic was born on December 10th,1973 in Ortiz, Guarico, Venezuela.
Her twin sister is Venezuelan model and actress Daniela Spanic.
Gabriela rose to fame in 1992 when she won the title of "Miss Venezuela International".
Before that, in 1991, she got her first acting role in the Venezuelan telenovela Mundo de Fieras.
This led to many other roles, including a very unusual role in the 2002 telenovela La Venganza.
In La Venganza, she played a woman that died, and came back to life in the body of a female boxer that died, and had to carry on her career.
And trust me, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
In 2010, Gaby, her son, her mother and her maid lived out a telenovela-sounding storyline when they were all poisoned by her assistant, Marcia Celeste Fernández Babio, with ammonium sulphate for four months.
All four have since recovered.
It gets even better....
The assistant had previously worked for Gaby's TWIN SISTER!
It don't get more soap opera than that!
