Cuban-American actress Doris Morgado was raised in Miami, FL. Her diverse look has helped her land, not only Latina, but also Native American, Middle Eastern and East Indian roles on feature films and TV. She is fluent in Spanish and English.
Growing up as the middle child, Doris entertained herself by pulling pranks on her siblings. Her favorite was hiding under the bed and grabbing their legs as they walked by. Her pranks helped develop her patience and speed, as she would sometimes wait for hours under the bed and then make a quick getaway. Later she used this speed on the Florida International University's track team, where she ran the 100 and 200-yard dashes.
Doris knew she wanted to be an actress at a very young age and, after earning a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, she decided to pursue acting seriously.
When she's not working on her craft or scaring her siblings, you can find her volunteering at a faith-based outreach and support group for women in the sex industry, including victims of commercialized sexual exploitation and trafficking.
