Priyanka Chopra is a multifaceted personality and one of the most recognized and applauded talents in the world. Her foray into the entertainment industry began at the age of 17 when she won Miss India and went on to win Miss World the following year, a title that catapulted her to international stardom.
In September 2015, Priyanka made her American TV acting debut as Alex Parrish on ABC’s hit drama Quantico, making history as the first Indian actor to star as the lead of a TV drama series – Quantico is currently in its second season and has been licensed in 212 territories (excluding the U.S. and Canada), across 54 languages. In January 2016, Priyanka won a People’s Choice Award for her role in Quantico in the category of “Favorite Actress in a New Television Series,” again making history as the first Indian actress to win a People’s Choice Award; and in April 2016 she was featured on the cover of TIME Magazine’s coveted TIME 100 issue, as one of the Most Influential People in the world. In May 2017 Priyanka will also make her Hollywood film debut, as antagonist Victoria Leeds, in the action comedy film Baywatch, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron.
With more than 54 million social media followers, and growing by the day, Priyanka is also committed to using her reach for good. Priyanka was recently named a global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, after serving as a National Goodwill Ambassador to India for 10 years. She is also a UN Foundation Girl Up Champion, and is involved in a number of efforts to protect children’s rights and promote the education of girls in India, including her namesake charity The Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education.
Priyanka splits her time between NYC and Mumbai — but is quick to point out that she mainly lives on an airplane.
