Thanks to her perseverance and her beauty, a benefit of her Puerto Rican heritage, Nadine Velazquez is certainly cleaning up in Hollywood. Nadine was born on November 20, 1978 in Chicago. As a child, she had aspirations of becoming a gymnast and by the age of 13, was determined to become an actress, but her mother was reluctant to let her get an agent at such a young age. She performed in a number of plays during high school and went to Chicago's Columbia College and got a BA in Marketing. While in school, she worked part-time as an agent's assistant. The agent convinced Nadine to get a head shot and she did, soon landing a commercial for McDonald's. She did other print and TV work and worked with a local acting troupe until she graduated and moved to Los Angeles. She landed a recurring role on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful in 2003 and also made guest appearances on Entourage and Las Vegas. In 2005, she landed her breakthrough role as maid and part-time go-go dancer 'Catalina' on the NBC sitcom My Name is Earl. Nadine's career is definitely on the rise, she even moved up from number 61 (in 2007) to number 41 on Maxim magazine's 2008 'Hot 100' list. This beauty is definitely one to watch.
