Zulay Henao is a soldier turned actress who has left people awed by how good she plays any character she takes up in a movie, or television series. Her love life has as well been interesting with people asking mostly about her relationship with Terrence Howard.
Well, you will find out all about it here starting with paragraphs that will introduce Zulay to you and how far she has come in the movie industry.
Zulay Henao Bio (Age)
Zulay was born on May 29, 1979, in Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia by Columbian parents. She spent most of her early days in her birth country up till she became a teenager at which time she and her family emigrated to New Jersey, the United States of America. She is of American-Colombian nationality. From a picture the Columbian born actress posted on her Instagram account on December 8, 2014, we learned that her mother’s name is Luz Mery and she has a great love for her family, cherishing every moment she spends with them.
In the U.S of A, the actress completed her high school education before joining the United States Army where she served for three years before opting for a career change. At this time, Zulay Henao enrolled to study at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts where she bagged a diploma in acting from the institution afterward. Looking at this now, it seemed impossible how someone who started off as a soldier would make a quick career change into something less combative as acting and quickly excel at it. The ex-soldier can, therefore, be said to have had a long interest in acting.
The year 2005 was when she made her acting debut in a film called Film 101 as an unknown character. In the same year, she played the known character of Gloria Rojas in another film titled Clearview, this drew some attention to her acting prowess as she launched it big in the industry in the year 2007.
Films like Illegal Tender, Feel the Noise, Saturday Morning, the Lifetime drama series: Army Wives and the highly successful Law & Order: Special Victims Unit were her biggest acting projects in the year 2007. Her career continued this upward trend in 2008 with a role in the horror film Grizzly Park, the short film The Heart Is a Hidden Camera and in the Lifetime original television movie Racing for Time.
At this time, people were beginning to believe that Zulay Henao can’t be flexible in the acting roles that she takes up. They wanted to see her do roles that would probably stretch her and rouse the soldier that resided within her, and just as if she has been waiting for it, in 2009 she starred as a female lead character in a sports fighting film called Fighting with the likes of Channing Tatum much to the delight of her fans and movie watchers.
Zulay’s acting career has seen her perform in a lot of other movies at different times some of which include S. Darko a 2009 science fiction film, Takers (2010), Hostel: Part III (2011) and 2011 Boy Wonder an independent psychological-thriller film. She began starring on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) sitcom Love Thy Neighbor in 2013 but left after a single season. The reason for her departure from the show is not known, however, she continued making appearances in films and television. Her recent works in films are as Lorena in the 2016 film Meet The Blacks and Madison in Grow House (2017).
The American-Colombian actress is seen more recently in the 2018 television series titled Kevin Can as Rebecca Romero in the episode Kevin Can Date. She is still very much active in the movie industry and as the years roll by we should still see her do a lot more movies and television series.
Zulay Henao’s Husband
The pretty American ex-soldier of Colombian heritage is not one of those actresses who would choose to be incommunicado about her relationship status. It can be fair to say that her relationships have been pretty much publicly known. We know she had dated a couple of famous guys out there whom we are going to tell you about.
A rumor made it round that she was dating Joel Rush and that their relationship started when they were both casts on the show If Loving You is Wrong. Her fans and well-wishers alike held the belief that they took their matching up in the 2014 show to real life and were an item for each other at that time.
Well, this speculation failed itself as Joe Rush got married to a lady now known as Alexandria Rush and soon had a baby with her.
The actress kept her fans wondering about her love life when it circulated that she was dating Jermaine Dupri and even going on romantic dates with him. However, she personally terminated the rumor and made it know that she is not dating him. Zulay has no husband as at the time of this report.
Relationship With Terrence Howard
Her relationship with Terrence Howard did exist as the two were seen many times with each other in public places and it was in one of such public outings that sloshed Terrence stood up and announced his engagement with Zulay Henao. Online news publications carried the tidings in May 2009 but Henao’s agent shocked people when the agent stated that Zulay was not engaged to Terrence that in fact she wasn’t even dating him.
There was no reaction from Terrence in response to this claim by Henao’s agent neither was there any further comments on it from Zulay’s end. At best, they ended their relationship as adults and didn’t make a mess of it.
