On November 10, at 3:00 p.m. theater, TV/film actress, and radio personality Angelica Vale will be honored with the 2,739th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of Live Theatre/Live Performance. The star will be located at 7060 Hollywood Boulevard near the star of her legendary mother Angelica Maria
Angelica Vale is the “Latina Queen of Stage Comedy” and is regarded as the Tina Fey and Carole Burnett of Spanish language entertainment. La Vale is the most recognized Mexican comedic actress and a true triple threat on a live stage. She’s a critically acclaimed live-theatre performer with an extensive career in film, television, radio, and music that spans more than four very active decades. Her acting career began as an infant tugging at the skirt of her legendary mother while living on stage.
Her mother is a Hollywood Walk of Famer herself and the famously regarded “Sweetheart of Mexico” (Novia de Mexico) Angelica Maria. Vale is synonymous with live musical stage comedy and is one of the most recognizable performers with over 500 live theater productions and thousands of hours on stage. In 2017, Vale was the principal voice character (Mama Imelda) in the Spanish language version of the Disney animated Oscar-winning hit, “Coco.”
Angelica solidified her worldwide fame as the lead actress on the wildly successful Televisa-Univision Spanish language version of the romantic comedy series, “Ugly Betty,” which set worldwide audience records. Today, she continues her passion for engaging audiences by hosting her own 5-hour morning radio show “La Vale Show” on the full-market FM station, CALI 93.9 in Los Angeles, California. Angelica was among the few broadcasters who, every day, delivered a live studio call-in show while defying her own well-being at the height of the COVID-19 U.S. Pandemic. For this work, she received the coveted “Gracie award” for outstanding achievement in radio.
Angelica is also the main host of HBO Max “Bake Off” Mexico returning for a second season. She’s also the head judge and character coach of Univision’s reality talent competition “Tu Cara Me Suena” returning for season 3 this spring. All these platforms give Angelica a live stage to project her love for theatrical performance.
Angelica has participated in more than 300 TV programs in the US; 20 feature films; 25 music albums; and 30 stage productions including the Off-Broadway run of the critically acclaimed, “Vagina Monologues.”
Vale is a proud Southern California resident, a social media influencer with over 8 million combined followers; a tireless activist on Mayor Garcetti’s community outreach team; a wife of an Iraq War Veteran, and the mother of two little Angelenos who are fluent in Spanish, English, and French.
La Vale has received many accolades including the 2022 Gracie® Award for outstanding achievement in media, Medallas de Cortez 2022 as radio personality of the Year, People En Español, “25 Mujeres Mas Poderosas,” and many, many more.
Angelica is an active supporter of the Hollywood charity community and has been active in various local, national, and international campaigns focused on minority youth education and economic empowerment.
