Best known as an actress and a TV hostess, Wendy’s training as a social communications major in college prepared her to have a comfortable command of the camera. Combined with her theater experience, this allows her to be familiar with the art of improvisation on the stage, as well as the ability to explore a character in depth.
Some use the endearing nickname “The Dominican Barbie” to describe Wendy Regalado, because of figure and general demeanor. Her natural beauty and fresh personality, combined with her involvement in worthy social causes, are all attributes that make her a worthy representative of her country and origin.
Wendy is, above all, an optimist. She is dynamic, excited about life and lives it based on a solid Christian faith. She does not see the difficulties along her path as something to avoid or be afraid of, but as opportunities to learn more and accumulate experiences.

The character of Lucia grew throughout the three seasons that lasted the entire series. Wendy has co-hosted Dimenzion AZ, an entertainment program that airs on Azteca América.

Some of the plays that she has appeared in include Shakespeare’s “Much ado about nothing,” García Lorca’s “Blood Wedding,” as well as “The Golden Egg,” “The Shampoo Girl,” “From Inside,” “Where’s Kevin?”, “The Chocolate Tree,” and others. From the complexity of the Shakespearean theater to the pressure of the micro-theater, that demands the delivery of a significant play in less than ten minutes, and going through the candor of children’s play, Wendy has been able to embody her characters in each genre. In doing so, she has won the respect of people who only know her work on TV or the movies, being that theater is where journey in the arts has its beginnings.

At the present time she is putting to practice all that she has learned in branding and becoming an influencer in all the products that she endorses.
