Gladis Jimenez portrayed Carmen on The Bold and the Beautiful. A native of Puerto Rico and a natural beauty, Gladis began her career modeling. She was fortunate enough to travel all over the country and the world, while modeling in places like New York and Japan. A stint as a spokesmodel on Star Search brought her national recognition. Soon after, she moved to Los Angeles where she was discovered by an agent who saw a photo of her that a photographer friend had taken.
Gladis' career was soon set in motion. She immediately booked television commercials and guest starred on television shows such as Walker, Texas Ranger, Diagnosis Murder, Pacific Blue, Melrose Place and Murder, She Wrote.
Most recently, however, Gladis was recognized for her memorable role as Ramona on The Young and the Restless.
Gladis prides herself in being a natural athlete and enjoys playing most team sports. She attends Yoga s regularly and has even managed to squeeze a belly dancing into her busy schedule. Being raised in Puerto Rico exposed her to plenty of water sports such as scuba diving and windsurfing. "I'll try just about any sport!" proclaims Gladis.
Gladis celebrates her birthday on May 21. She is 5'5" with dark brown hair and brown eyes.
