Sofia Vergara Is Flamenco Dancer in The Emoji Movie

Sofia Vergara is Getting the Emoji Treatment in Her Next Movie — Guess Which One She Is

A post shared by The Emoji Movie (@emojimovie) on

Sofia Vergara is finally going to get her own emoji. The actress is voicing the Flamenco dancer in the upcoming The Emoji Movie.

"I thought it was a great adventure and who doesn't like an emoji?" she told People about the movie. "I thought it was going to be a perfect role for me because people are always saying that I look like her!" Even more so now that the emoji has gotten a makeover, wearing a black dress with a rose in between her teeth and in her hair.

"I play the Flamenco Dancer," Sofia said in the interview. "And she is always doing the Flamenco. She does it in the morning when she gets up, she does it when she's eating, she probably does it when she's sleeping. It makes things like driving or putting on her makeup very difficult."

The movie will tell the story of Sofia and her emoji friends living in the city of Textopolis, where they go on an adventure through apps to find the code that will fix Gene, who has multiple facial expressions. The Emoji Movie is set to hit theaters July 28. See the character poster above.
