It has only been a decade, but Dascha Polanco has already won hearts across the nation with her portrayal of Daya Diaz in the Netflix comedy-drama series, Orange Is the New Black. The story revolved around an unassuming middle-class female who gets convicted for drug smuggling. The sexy actress plays an artistic Puerto Rican inmate on the series.
Born in the Dominican Republic, Dascha Polanco and her family relocated to the United States early in her life. No one in her immediate family came from the showbiz industry, so the lovely celebrity was hesitant to try acting, especially with her weight. Instead, she followed a different career, taking up psychology in college, and worked in healthcare right after.
Dascha Polanco almost became a nurse, but she dared to go back to her first love: acting. Her early works include appearances in the crime drama series, Unforgettable, and the police procedural show, NYC 22. Orange Is the New Black was her first full-time acting gig.
The hot actress then appeared in the award-winning anthology series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace. Dascha Polanco showed up in three of the nine episodes as the fierce detective, Lori Wieder. It appears that producers based her character from a real-life police officer, but finding leads proved to be challenging.
On the silver screen, Dascha Polanco has her fair share of victorious films. She had a minor role in Joy as the titular character’s best friend. The talented actress also turned up on the epic crime film The Irishman. She has an action movie in the works, and it looks like the celebrity will appear in the much-awaited musical drama, In the Heights. With the film’s genre, we might get to see Dascha Polanco’s singing skills as well.
The beautiful actress is a social media star with nearly 3 million followers on her Instagram and almost half a million ones on Twitter. Aside from the occasional bikini photo, Dascha Polanco encourages her fans with workout videos and messages of self-love. The voluptuous female is proud of her curves, flaunting her generous boobs and ass in nearly every photo.
Recently, the stunning celebrity launched a podcast that focused on celebrating the Latinx experience in the United States. Her wide range of topics includes machismo, self-care, comedy, and the first-generation experience. So far, her guests were funny guys Oscar Nuñez and Carlos Santos, Jason Genao, and drag superstar Valentina.
With the conclusion of Orange Is the New Black in 2019, she has yet to participate in any long-running series. We look forward to seeing more of this busty female in the big and small screens. If you cannot get enough of her, browse through our selection of photos of the gorgeous Dascha Polanco.
