easily captures the crowd with her breathtaking beauty. This Puerto Rican-American actress has a drop dead gorgeous body, which gets the viewers even more hooked. She is indeed sexy, yet she exudes a youthful glow that depicts her playful and lighthearted personality. Her inclusion on the television series My Name is Earl
escalates her to fame, and has earned her a number of positive reviews like being named one of USA Today’s “Five Rising Stars To Watch Closely” and one of Daily Variety’s “Ten Actor’s To Watch” in 2005.
Born on November 20, 1978 in Chicago, Illinois, Nadine Velazquez studied marketing at Columbia College. After moving to Los Angeles, she landed starring roles in movies like Biker Boyz
and Chasing Papi
. She also appeared on The Last Ride
, The Bold and the Beautiful

Playing Catalina Aruca on the comedy series My Name is Earl
gives Velazquez the opportunity to be the eye candy of the show. As a very attractive Hispanic maid at the motel, she embodies the ideal male fantasy. She gives the Hickey brothers her unique perspective on things, which adds humor and delight to the show. At times, her character balances the kooky cast. On the other hand, she also has her share of quirky punch lines. Her sensual moves, which she got from her pole dancing days, makes the show very interesting to watch.
