Sully Diaz (born July 11, 1960 in New York City) is a Puerto Rican actress and singer.


Personal life

Born Sully Emelia Díaz Durán in New York City to Puerto Rican parents, Diaz began her career as a model. At the age of 17 she began to act in Spanish soap operas, making her a well known figure in Puerto Rico's television.


In 1983 she became popular over all of Latin America with the role of Coralito, on the soap of the same name. From that point on, Sully became known as "the Queen of Spanish Soaps".

In the early 90's, Sully moved to Hollywood. There she appeared in various tv shows as guest star and even worked in a few movies.

By the mid 90's, Sully joined four other Latino women (Dyana Ortelli, Marilyn, Ludo Vika and Lydia Nicole) in a comedy group called "The Hot & Spicy Mamitas". They had sold-out appearances in several Los Angeles comedy clubs. They recorded a live show on CD named simply, The Hot & Spicy Mamitas.

In 2002, Sully appeared in the off-Broadway play, La Lupe: My Life, My Destiny, in which she played the Cuban singer, La Lupe. Shortly after the New York run of this play, Sully made her own production of La Reina, La Lupe. This play toured all of Puerto Rico and was very successful in Florida.

Although praised for her performance as La Lupe, her choice to play a woman of Afro-Latino descent was criticized by some.

In 2004, Sully is toured with Gilberto Santa Rosa in a play called La Verdadera Historia de Pedro Navaja.

In 2009, Sully will appear in the movie Princess Protection Program as Queen Sophia, along side Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.
