Sofia Vergara to play an emoji in her next big movie


Cape Town – Sofia Vergara has just announced that she will be starring in The Emoji Movie. (Read more here.)

The Modern Family actress will be playing the role of The Flamenco Dancer. 

She revealed the news on Instagram alongside a picture of her and an upgraded version of the popular emoticon. 

"Excited to be Flamenco Dancer," she wrote. 



In an interview with People magazine she revealed that her character is the life of the party in the movie. 

Her biggest challenge though is that she is always doing the Flamenco which makes things like driving or applying make-up very difficult. 

"And she is always doing the Flamenco. She does it in the morning when she gets up, she does it when she’s eating, she probably does it when she’s sleeping," she told People.

Other actors cast in the movie include Patrick Stewart, TJ Miller, Maya Rudolph, Jake Austin, Jennifer Coolidge and James Corden to name a few. 

Watch a teaser here:


The film is set to release in SA in September.
