As a child she was professionally trained in classical ballet, flamenco, and lyrical dance. “I love my career now and plan to stay focused. But on some of my days off I still take dance classes. I love to dance and that will never stop.”- says Toubia when asked about her dance background. Preparation is key for Emeraude and no matter what comes her way, she is always willing to grow and learn from her experiences.
Emeraude has appeared on numerous Latin American television shows, a well-known face amongst the Latin community. She is a proud mixture of American culture descending from Mexican and Lebanese parents.

Ferrvor had the chance to chat with Emeraude and learn more about what makes her tick.
Thanks for having us Emeraude! First, let’s get a little personal:
What do you consider the sexiest part of a man?
Sexiest parts are lips, eyes and hands.
What are some traits of being a good gentleman according to Emeraude Toubia?
Some traits of being a good gentleman would be a hard worker, someone with a sense of humor, who enjoys life and treats his mother like a queen.
What are 3 things not to do, when going out on a date with you?
Don’t try to be someone you’re not
Don’t think it’s cool NOT to eat. I love to eat!
Don’t be on your phone. (Which is a problem now a days!)
What is the best way to ask a girl out on a date according to you? Text? Call? Love note?
I am super old style so a love note would work best.
At what moment do you feel the sexiest?
When I’m happy. I think a woman looks the sexiest with a smile on their face.

What was it like working on Shadowhunters?
It was definitely a dream come true. I booked this role after being in LA for only three months. Never would have imagined it would have happened.
How has it been playing Isabelle Lightwood?
I love Isabelle. Passionate warrior! I learn so much from her. She loves to dress up and look fabulous but she sees passed that. She knows that in life there are much more important things than how you look.
Any set secrets you can share with us?
I almost injured someone with my whip!
Our team loves your series, how did you prepare for your role?
A lot of martial arts training IN HEELS !! So you could just imagine how my feet were by the end of the night.
Any career goals you wish to accomplish this year?
I would love to book my first feature film.
What would a “lazy day” at home with you be like?
A lazy day would include eating and watching movies. Disney, animated or romantic comedies are my favorite.

Who would be Emeraude’s Celeberty #MCM (Man Crush Monday) ?
Ryan Gosling all day every day!
Favorite food that you can’t live without?
Mexican food! My grandmothers “milanesas” are the best!
Do you ever feel unappealing? How do you pick yourself up?
Yes and I think a lot of girls go through that. I just hang out with friends and try to do something fun.
A dream acting role would be?
I would like to play a Disney princess.
What differences do you see between Latin audiences and American audiences?
I have to say they are both equally as passionate.
How’s the day on set with our photographer, Kaleb Khu and the Ferrvor Team?
I love Kaleb!!! It was so much fun and I love the fact that he made me feel so comfortable and relaxed while being photographed.
