Biography[edit]

Boyer's full name is Angélique Monique Paulette Boyer Rousseau and she was born in Saint-Claude, Jura, France.[4] She has said personally that her mother, whose maiden name is "Rousseau", was born in Mexico to French parents.[5] In 1990, Boyer's family moved to Mexico. In reference to her parents migration to Mexico; Boyer quotes "I am very thankful for my parents' decision, because it was a choice between either Spain or Mexico".[5]

At a very young age, she became a member of the musical group "Rabanitos Verdes" (Little Green Radishes). Later, she continued on with a dream of becoming an actress. At the age of eight she enrolled in the Centro de Educación Artística, where she later graduated at the age of 12.

While filming Rebelde, she and two other co-stars - the characters of Celina (Estefanía Villareal) and José Luján (Zoraida Gómez) - formed the band Citricus or C3Q'S, which recorded one song - "No Me Importa" ("I don't care"); though it was only a single, the song went on to be played aired during a special concert show and was used as soundtrack during the rest of the show when characters acted rebellious. The song became a favorite of fans, but was overshadowed by the main cast RBD's two albums.

After Rebelde, Boyer auditioned for Bailando por la Boda de mis Sueños (Dancing for my Dream Wedding), a charity show in which less fortunate contestants are paired with celebrities in order to have their dream wedding paid for. Boyer has been featured in H Para Hombres and the Mexican edition of Maxim. In 2007, she began to appear regularly on another television series, Muchachitas como tu.

Transition to mature roles[edit]

In 2009, she was cast in the high crime drama television series Mujeres Asesinas 2 as a violent killer, a role she welcomed as a contrast to the "good-girl" characters she typically portrayed. Roles which later broke new ground for her were the big budget telenovela projects in 2010 Corazón salvaje and in 2011 Teresa as main protagonist and main villain.[6] These controversial roles marked a significant change in Boyer's acting career, for this was the first time fans had seen the actress in more mature roles.

Not long after she was the main protagonist-antagonist in Teresa, she participated in a theatre role, Ausencia de Dios (God's Absence) she went from "la hembra mala" (femme fatale) to a "monja" (a nun in catholic religion), where she worked with Raquel Olmedo once again, and Jacqueline Andere.

In 2012, Angelique Boyer starred in the telenovela Abismo de Pasion with David Zepeda. She played Elisa Castañón, a young, innocent woman forbidden to be with the love of her life, Damian Arango, played by David Zepeda, due to family differences and secrets.[7]

On June 26, 2013, it was confirmed that Angelique Boyer (along with Sebastián Rulli and Luis Roberto Guzmán) will star in Angelli Nesma's Lo Que La Vida Me Robó, a remake of Ernesto Alonso's Bodas de odio produced in 1983.[8]
