Born Rosa Dolores Alverio on December 11, 1931, in Humacao, Puerto Rico, Rita Moreno is best known as Anita in “West Side Story” (1961), a role that earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first Latina actress to win the honor. Ms. Moreno also appeared on the children's shows “Sesame Street” and “The Electric Company,” and is one of only 11 people to have received the four major entertainment honors — Emmy, Oscar, Tony and Grammy awards.

Ms. Moreno won a Tony Award (best featured actress in a play) for her work in Broadway's “The Ritz” (1975).   She went on to win two Emmy awards for guest appearances on “The Muppet Show” (1977) and “The Rockford Files” (1978). She is one of only 11 people to have received the four major entertainment honors—Emmy, Tony, Oscar and Grammy awards.

In January, Ms. Moreno will receive the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment at this year’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.

“Rita Moreno: A Memoir” was published in March by Celebra Hardcover.
