Early life[edit]

Limón has appeared in numerous TV commercials, both in Spanish and English. Among her credits are commercials for Toyota, Dr Pepper, and Always.

During her screen test for the part of Carmen in The L Word, Limón ad libbed a Spanish phrase into Kate Moennig's ear (“Quiero lamerte hasta que te vengas en mi boca mil veces” - "I want to lick you until you come in my mouth a thousand times"). The phrase was written into the show, and later used in the series by Sarah Shahi's Carmen.[1]

Limón played Clovis Galletta in the 2011 video game, L.A. Noire.
