Iris Almario

Iris Almario is an actress, host and model born in New York City of Colombian Puerto Rican descent.

She graduated from The Dalton School and began her career as a dancer after obtaining a scholarship to Phil Black. Although Iris loved dancing and teaching, the opportunity to compete in a pageant changed her path. She won the title, Queen of The National Puerto Rican Day Parade and afterwards was crowned Miss Latina USA which gave her the opportunity to travel to Guatemala, El Salvador and Peru. During her pageant years Iris also competed and won the model segment of Univision’s Sabado Gigante…twice, a few years apart. Upon finishing her pageant terms, she submitted her photo to the Latina Magazine/Wilhelmina Model Search.  With five thousand hopefuls Iris was one of three awarded a modeling contract with the prestigious Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.

Although, she loved her experiences, Iris knew in her heart that acting and hosting was something she longed to do. She then moved to Los Angeles and has worked on numerous television shows. Coming in 2016 you can catch Iris on Code Black and American Crime Story The People V. O.J. Simpson.
Presently she hosts the infomercial for SilkNFlash & Go in English and Spanish along with many safety videos for clients like Princess Cruise Lines, Omni Hotels and the Venetian/Palazzo Hotels.
This multi faceted performer resides in Los Angeles and is grateful for the opportunities the entertainment world has given her.
