Gaby Espino is a Venezuelan telenova star. She is known as one of the most beautiful actresses, brand ambassadors and models in the Latino community but despite filming some of her shows in Florida is basically unknown to the American public. At first glance it seems almost incomprehensible because she definitely has the looks, the marriage and the acting experience and ability.
So why is she not a household name in Hollywood similar to Sofia Vergara of "Modern Family" fame or Eva Longoria of "Desperate Housewives"? Gaby Espino is unknown to the majority of American television and movie audience because she speaks English with a heavy Venezuelan accent. It almost seems incomprehensible but this is the reason.
Gaby Espino has a loyal fan base in the Latino community as she is a Venezuelan soap opera star. Her personal life is constantly the source of speculation and gossip as she is married to Jencarlos Canela, a very popular American singer who parents are Cuban-American. He is her second husband as the first husband and her split up because she allegedly fell in love with Jencarlos Canela while working with him on a soap opera show.
They denied the relationship at first but eventually admitted that they are in a relationship and now have a young son, Nickolas who has a younger sister, Oriana, from her first marriage. As such, it is not a question of whether her appearance in any US network television show or movie would attract a large following from the Latino community.
The question one must ask is whether Gaby Espino wants to break into Hollywood as she has a very lucrative career due to her being a very popular presence within the Latino entertainment community? If Gaby wants to break into Hollywood she should consider finding a small role in a movie and use that to introduce herself to the American public and start working with an English voice coach.
Gaby Espino has the looks and acting experience that could make her a Hollywood star or at the very least expand her acting resume. In addition, she brings something that every film producer and writer want and that is new viewers to her movie or television project because of her large Latino fan base. Gaby Espino is a Venezuelan television star and commercial endorser but she has the fan base and the acting skills to be a successful Hollywood actress. The question that her fans and entertainment insiders should ask is whether she wants to be a star or more accurately, is she scared of becoming a star in Hollywood?
Unlike many actresses, she would likely be offered a role because of the fans she would bring to her projects so why would she not take the steps to become a Hollywood star and not just a star for the Venezuelan community. The opportunity for Gaby Espino to become a Hollywood star is available, the only question is does she want to be a Hollywood star?
