Daniele Toshiko Suzuki Novaes (Brazilian Portuguese: [dɐ̃niˈɛʎi ˈtoʃiko suˈzuki noˈvajʃ], born September 21, 1977) is a Brazilian actress and TV host.


Born in Rio de Janeiro, Daniele Toshiko Suzuki Novaes is the daughter of Hiroshi Suzuki, a second-generation Japanese Brazilian from São Paulo, whose parents immigrated from Shizuoka. Her mother is Ivone Suzuki, a Brazilian from Minas Gerais, of Italian, German and Native Brazilian descent.[2][3] Her father walked out on her family when she was 15 and moved back to São Paulo. Suzuki was raised in Rio de Janeiro by her mother and grandmother and faced financial difficulties; she had to live at her mother's friend home because her father sold the family house, leaving them with no options. Suzuki said about this period that she "didn't go angry because she always had supporting friends". Since then, she reportedly rarely sees her father.[4]


When she was 15, Suzuki started her career as a model, despite finding that her Asian appearance somewhat limited her chances. She graduated in Industrial Design in Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. Later, she started acting, gaining fame as the Brazilian teenager Miyuki in the telenovela Malhação. Nowadays, Suzuki also works as a host in Pé no Chão show, on the Brazilian Multishow channel.
