Isabelle Lightwoodplayed by Emeraude Toubia
Isabelle is a feisty, smart and beautiful member of the Lightwood family along with her protective older brother Alec. With her serpent bracelet transforming in to a whip, she can take care of herself when the action starts. Fiercely loyal to her family and friends she enchants pretty much anyone who meets her.
Mexican-Lebanese actress Emeraude Toubia, whose first name represents a stone the color of beauty and love, was born in 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 finalist 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 primetime Telenovelas for various Latin American markets.
