Dascha Polanco is the daughter of Rubén Darío Polanco, who worked as a mechanic, and Janet Polanco, who was a cosmetologist. When she was a child, the family moved from the Dominican Republic to the USA, so she spent her childhood divided between Miami and Brooklyn. After matriculation, she enrolled at Hunter College, from which she graduated with a BA degree in Psychology. Before Dascha became an actress, she studied nursing and worked as a hospital administrator at the Montefiore Medical Center in The Bronx, which was the main source of her early net worth.
However, Dascha’s love for acting prevailed, and she put her insecurities of her weight aside, and joined the acting studio, soon signing a contract with the talent agency Shirley Grant Management. Little by little Dascha began appearing in auditions, and the first opportunity for her to become a professional actress came with small roles in the TV series “Unforgettable” (2011), and “NYC 22” (2012). 2013 was her breakout year, as she was selected for several notable roles, including Carmel in the film “Gimme Shelter” with Brendan Fraser and Vanessa Hughens in lead roles, and also as Dayanara Diaz in the highly popular TV series “Orange Is The New Black” (2013-2016), which comnsiderably increased her net worth, and propelled her further into the acting scene.
In 2014 she appeared in the film “The Cobbler”, with Adam Sandler and Melonie Diaz, and the next year, she featured in the film “Joy”, with Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro in lead roles, which also added to the overall size of her net worth.
To speak further of her career, Dascha also appeared in the film “The Perfect Match” (2016), increasing further her net worth.
Thanks to her talents, she has received several nominations and awards, including the ALMA Award in category Special Achievement in Television for her work on TV series “Orange Is The New Black”, and she also has two SAG awards in category Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series for her work on the same series.
