Talisa Soto Biography
Beyonce Knowles was born on September 4
Talisa Soto was born on March 27, 1967 in Brooklyn, New York, and raised
in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Talisa walked into modeling when she was 15, working in Italy as well as for
British VOGUE out of Paris. Despite a successful modeling career that saw her
land the covers of Vogue, Glamour and Mademoiselle, among others, she yearned to
act. Returned to States, her break came as India, the Puerto Rican girlfriend,
in "Spike in Bensonhurst" (1988). The next year, she was Bond Girl Lupe Lamora
in "License to Kill". TV work followed, including the USA network movie
"Silhouette" (1990) and the HBO anthology, "Prison Stories: Women Behind Bars"
(1991), in which Talisa's dramatic skills were on display. Although she had
supporting parts in the films "The Mambo Kings" (1992) and "Hostage" (1992),
Talisa continued to try her hand at TV in the series "Harts of the West"
(1993-94). In the latter, she was featured as the granddaughter of a Native
American owner of the town's general store. In 1995, Talisa found herself in two
high-profile features, opposite Johnny Depp in "Don Juan De Marco" and as the
"secret weapon" Princess Kitana in "Mortal Kombat". (In 1997, Talisa reprised
Kitana in the sequel "Mortal Kombat: The Annihilation".) She also returned to
her modeling roots posing for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and appeared
on its accompanying TV special. She also landed a supporting role in Michael
Cimino's "Sunchaser" (1996), starring Woody Harrelson.
Talisa stayed out of the limelight for the next several years but reemerged in
the 2001 film "Pinero" about Miguel Pinero, whose urban poetry is recognized as
a pre-cursor to rap and hip-hop. It starred Benjamin Bratt whom Talisa married
in May of 2002, causing her perhaps the most media attention of her career. Also
in 2002, Talisa Soto appeared in the film "Ecks vs. Sever" alongside Lucy Liu
and Antonio Banderas.
