Rosie Perez Introduction

Rosa María "Rosie" Pérez is an Academy Award-nominated American actress, dancer, choreographer and director. She is recognized for her nasal voice and thick Brooklyn accent.

Rosie Perez Early Life

Pérez was born and raised in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick to Puerto Rican parents Lydia Pérez (née Fontanez), a singer, and Ismael Serrano, a sailor employed in the merchant-marine. At the time of her birth, her mother was married to Ventura Pérez, and had an affair with Serrano. She attended the Grover Cleveland High School in Queens, New York and a community college in Los Angeles.

Rosie Perez Career

Pérez started her career in the late 1980s as a dancer on Soul Train and has choreographed music videos by Janet Jackson, Bobby Brown, Diana Ross, LL Cool J and The Boys. She was the choreographer for the dancing group, the Fly Girls who were featured on every performance of "In Living Color." She was noticed in a dance club by Spike Lee in 1989, who hired her for her first major acting role in Do the Right Thing. She made her Broadway debut in Terrence McNally's Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. She had her third major role in the hit comedy White Men Can't Jump (1992) co-starring Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. She also co-starred opposite Jeff Bridges in Peter Weir's Fearless (1993) (for which she was nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress). In 1997 she starred in Perdita Durango (1997), a controversial film in which many scenes of excessive violence, sex and nudity were edited out of the version released in the United States, but remained intact in the version released throughout Latin America. On January 6, 2000, she was arrested for disorderly conduct in Manhattan following a rally to protest U.S. Navy bomb tests on Vieques, a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico.

Pérez is a Puerto Rican activist who fights for Puerto Rican rights from America. Her film Yo Soy Boricua! Pa' Que Tú Lo Sepas! (I'm Puerto Rican, Just So You Know!) is about this fight. She starred in and directed the Spanish AIDS PSA campaign "Join the Fight" for Cable Positive and Kismet Films. The campaign featured actor Wilmer Valderrama, BET's Julissa Bermudez, Telenovela actor Erick Elias, singer/actress Lorena Rojas, 2006-2007 Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera, and actress Judy Marte. An English-language campaign was also directed by Liev Schreiber. She has more recently played corrupt police officer Carol Brazier in the Judd Apatow-produced film Pineapple Express (2008) co-starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.

Perez also provides the voice of Click, the camera, on the children's television series "Go Diego Go!"
