Early Life

Rosa Dolores Alverio was born on December 11, 1931, in Humacao, Puerto Rico. Throughout her career, Moreno has broken new ground for Latinos in entertainment. Moreno got her start in show business when she was young. In her early teens, she was on Broadway and in her first movie. She also dropped out of school around the same time.

‘West Side Story’ Success

Moreno may be best known for her work in West Side Story (1961), a modern musical based on Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. She had to sing, dance, and act out very dramatic scenes in the movie, which shows how versatile she is as an actress. She was the first Hispanic actress to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Anita, the tough but weak girlfriend of the Sharks’ gang leader. She won the award for her performance as Anita.

Other Achievements and EGOT Status

After her success with West Side Story, Moreno took on a number of interesting roles on stage and in films. She starred alongside Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson and James Garner. In the 1970s, her career took another interesting turn when she joined the cast of The Electric Company, a children’s show. She stayed with the show for six seasons and became known for her trademark “Hey, guys.” She and the rest of the cast won a Grammy Award in 1972 for the show’s soundtrack.

Just a few years later, Moreno won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for her work in the Broadway play The Ritz (1975). Moreno did not stop at her awards. She won two Emmy Awards for guest appearances in The Muppet Show (1977) and in The Rockford Files (1978). She is one of the few people to have received the four most important awards in the entertainment industry – Emmy, Tony, Oscar and Grammy (also known as EGOT).

From 1997 to 2003, Moreno impressed critics again with her role as a sober nun in the cable television series Oz. Today, she continues to star in feature films, make guest appearances on television, sing and perform in theater productions.

She is also co-producing the remake of “West Side Story” in 2021.
