American-Latino actress Constance Marie has had a long career in Hollywood and is known best for her role as Angie Lopez in the "George Lopez" show and most recently for her role in the television series "Switched at Birth". She has made a good living as a very likeable supporting actress in television series' throughout her career but she might even make a better villan in the future.
In 2014 in addition to her role in "Switched at Birth" she will also be seen in the movie "Sweet Surrender". She has a great connection with both her television audience which is unlikely to change if they see her in a different aspect. Constance Marie is a very attractive, strong woman whose large fan following would bring both American and Latino fans to whatever project she is in. If there was ever a time that was ideal for her to carve out another niche for herself as a "villainous" character that time is now.
While it is a great thing for an actress to develop a niche for themselves if she were to demonstrate to the movie directors and producers that she could play a role that many television and movie goers never could imagine her playing it will provide her the opportunity to play even more challenging roles. Catherine Zeta-Jones became even more beloved by directors and producers after she played her role in the movie "Traffic" and it is very likely that Constance Marie would shock the entertainment world and help her career in the long term with such a move.
Constance Marie's career is doing very well as she is known as the supportive, feisty, attractive mother and wife in the majority of her recent roles. A change in role for Constance Marie as someone who is not what her fans see on television could go a long way toward helping her make the transition from television star to movie star.
