Tony Plana

Tony Plana recently starred for four seasons as "Ignacio Suarez" -- the widowed father to America Ferrera's "Betty" -- in ABC's landmark, groundbreaking hit series "Ugly Betty," for which he received the 2006 Golden Satellite Award from the International Press Academy, an Imagen Award, and an Alma Award. "Ugly Betty" was the first Spanish-speaking series to be adapted to English for a major American network and has received the highest ratings and the most critical acclaim of any Latino-based show in the history of television, most notably 11 Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe Award for best comedy. Previously, he also starred in Showtime's original series "Resurrection Boulevard," and was nominated for two Alma Awards for best actor. "Resurrection Boulevard" was the first series to be produced, written, and directed by -- as well as star -- Latinos, and the most awarded series in Showtime's history, including an Alma Award for the best television series of 2002.
