Sánchez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the youngest of four siblings, having three older brothers. She received her primary education in San Juan. At a young age, she showed an interest in both dancing and acting and would put on shows for her family. Sánchez enrolled in the University of Puerto Rico, where like her father and brothers she was to study marketing. However, this was not her calling and after three years she left the course. In 1991, at the age of 21, Sánchez moved to New York City, where she took classes in dancing, acting and singing. She returned to Puerto Rico, and in 1992 she made her movie debut, having landed a small part as an island girl in the movie Captain Ron, which was partly filmed in Puerto Rico, starring Martin Short and Kurt Russell.
Rise to Fame
In Puerto Rico, she gained public attention as a dancer and as co-host of a variety show called Que Vacilon. At that time, in 1993, Sánchez won the Miss Puerto Rico Petite contest, and in 1994 she won the international title of Miss American Petite, bringing her international fame. Sánchez has been named to numerous annual lists of beautiful women including Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100" in 2001, 2002 and 2006; AskMen.com's "Top 99 Most Desirable Women" in 2005 and 2006; and FHM Magazine's "100 Sexiest Women" in 2005 and 2006.

30'UNDAN SONRA ŞÖHRET OLDU
Şu sıralar ülkemizde de gösterilen Without a Trace dizisiyle kariyerinde iyi bir çıkış yakalayan Roselyn Sanchez, Hollywood'un Latin kökenli oyuncularından. Porto Riko'da 1973 yılında doğan Sanchez, henüz 21 yaşındayken dans ve oyunculuk eğitimi almak için New York'a taşındı.
1990'lı yılların ortalarında Que Vacilon adlı komedi şovunda görev alan Sanchez, ülkesinde pazarlama eğitimi almaya başladı. Ama okulu tamamlamadan kariyerini gösteri dünyasında sürdürmeye karar verdi.
2002 yılında Stuff dergisi tarafından dünyanın en seksi 102 kadını listesinde 50'nci sırada yer alan yıldız yine aynı yıl Maxim'in en seksi yıldızlar listesine girdi.
Genellikle göz önünde olmayan Roselyn Sanchez, son bir yıldır kariyerinde dikkat çekici ilerlemeler elde etti. Son dönemde hem yapımcıların hem de magazin basınının daha çok dikkatini çekmeye başlayan Roselyn Sanchez, bir anlamda biraz geç keşfedildi... Ama kaybettiği zamanı kısa sürede telafi edecek gibi görünüyor.
2008 ve 2009'un neredeyse tamamını sinema filmleri ve TV dizilerinin çekiminde geçirecek olan Sanches Hollywood'da adından daha çok söz ettirecek gibi görünüyor.
