Mini Biography
Emeraude Toubia is a Mexican-Lebanese actress, whose first name represents a stone the color of beauty and love. The exotic beauty was born in Vancouver, Canada and raised in Brownsville, Texas where she experienced the best of both the Mexican and American cultures.

At the age of five, Toubia started to professionally train in classical ballet, flamenco, lyrical, and belly dance. At only fifteen years old, Toubia's love for the stage led her to compete in a series of pageants. She has since been named Miss South Texas, Miss Rio Grande Valley America and Miss Brownsville Teen. In 2008, she was cast to participate in Nuestra Belleza Latina. After weeks of extensive training, her wide fan base selected her as the first runner-up to the Crown. As a result of her success, she went on to star in multiple commercials for brands such as Maybelline, JC Penney, State Farm and Sony, among others.

Toubia has served as a television host for a national-cable network and starred in both youth and prime-time telenovelas for various Latin American markets. She is dedicated to perfecting her skills through education. When she is not on set, she trains with her mentors and coaches. Toubia is also a volunteer for non-profit organizations Toys for Tots, Make a Wish Foundation, and leads the "Queen for a Day" program at her hometown's children's hospital.

  • Quotes
  • I feel now with all these reality shows on TV, girls are confused about what is the right role model. There are a lot of girls fighting on TV, and girls probably wonder, "Am I supposed to be mean with my friends at school or be a bully?" I was bullied in middle school, so I think we need more girls on TV to be positive role models -- and I'm so happy that's happening.
  • [on deciding to move to Los Angeles] I was doing telenovelas in Miami and Mexico, and everyone's dream when you're an actor is to be in Hollywood. I left everything in Miami and came to LA with one bag following my dream.
  • I feel very proud of where I came from. I feel very proud of my family, so I own it. I try to be the best version of me that I can be, whether it's acting or on a personal level.
