Alex Meneses stars in "Telenovela" on NBC as over-the-top diva actress Isabella Santamaria.

Alex Meneses is an ALMA Award-nominated actress known for her smoldering bombshell characters and philanthropic commitment to a wide variety of causes.

Meneses first became embraced by audiences playing Teresa Morales in "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." Her role as Stefania Fogagnolo — Brad Garrett's luscious Italian girlfriend on "Everybody Loves Raymond" — earned her ALMA Award and American Comedy Award nominations. Other television roles include Joey Tribiani's sister Cookie on "Friends," Sofia on "The Goldbergs," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "CSI: Miami," "Prison Break," "NCIS," "Psych," "Austin & Ally" and "The Cleveland Show."

On film, the Chicago native and former model appeared in "Selena," "Boyle Heights" and the New York Film Critics Circle Award-winning "Auto Focus."

As president and founder of her own production company (OOLaLa Productions/LADDS Entertainment), Meneses produced the Sundance Channel hit documentary "Damned to Heaven," a gripping look at life inside the FLDS (Fundamental Church of Jesus Christ Later Day Saints) pluralistic community of Colorado City, Arizona.

Meneses also executive produced "Australians Hit Hollywood," an honest look at Australians and New Zealanders who have turned themselves into prominent players in Hollywood.

Meneses received acclaim in the Geffen Playhouse's production of "Oscar and Felix: A New Look at The Odd Couple" by Neil Simon.

In her ongoing commitment to philanthropy and volunteerism, Meneses has served on the Board of Trustees at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles for ten years. She also serves on the boards for United Hope for Animals, the Los Angeles Symphony, the Chicago Symphony and is a member of the Chicago Historical Society.

An alum of Chicago's Mother McCauley Liberal Arts High School, Meneses frequently returns to campus and meets with students. In 2005, she established the Alexandra Meneses Endowed Scholarship to ensure young women are given the best possible career and life opportunities.

A devoted mother to her young daughter, Meneses divides her time between L.A. and Chicago.
