With a career that mainly centers on television, French-born Mexican actress Angelique Boyer has built fame that reverberates across the globe. She is known for her impressive roles in telenovelas like Teresa, Rebelde, and Lo que la vida me robó. Boyer has worked her way up the Mexican telenovela scene and is now admired for her contributions to the entertainment industry.
Apart from acting, Angelique has an interesting musical side, one she hardly shows. As a child, she was part of a music group called Rabanitos Verdes (Little Green Radishes). In 2001 when the American boy band N’Sync toured Mexico City, she opened their Estadio Azteca show. Together with her Rebelde co-stars Estefanía Villareal and Zoraida Gómez, Boyer formed the music band Citricus (C3Q’S).
Angelique Boyer’s Fact Card
Early Years and Career Beginning
Besides its reputation as the world’s capital of wooden smoking pipes, Saint-Claude is the birthplace of the famed actress. She was born in the commune in Jura, east of France, on the 4th of July 1988. Angelique is the only child of her parents, Sylvie Rousseau and Patrick Boyer.
She was just two years old when her family relocated to Mexico, where she would grow with a passion for entertainment. Her parents were committed to seeing their child prosper in her dreams, thus they seek out opportunities to help her hone her skills. Angelique was enrolled at Centro de Educación Artística, Mexico’s entertainment educational institution run by the media conglomerate, Televisa. The school where she would graduate from four years later at the age of 12, is an incubator for talent and groomed her for an amazing future in the industry.
Exceptionally creative, Angelique Boyer’s first acting credit was in the beloved teen musical drama, Rebelde. Boyer played the recurring role of Victoria “Vico” Paz for about a year. The experience she acquired from the series was enough to secure her roles in works such as Muchachitas como tú (2007), Objetos perdidos (2007), and Alma de hierro (2008 – 2009). She made her film debut in 2007, playing Chica Francesa in the supernatural horror film, J-ok’el.
The Projects That Made Her Famous
For the first time in her career, Angelique Boyer took on a mature role; this was in 2009 and in the crime drama TV series, Mujeres Asesinas 2. This proved to be the breakthrough she needed in her career. Following her impressive performance on the drama, Boyer earned the first lead role of her career as femme fatale Teresa Chávez Aguirre in Teresa (2010 – 2011). With Abismo de pasión in 2012, she went from a femme fatale to a nun, one of her most incredible roles to date.
Since then, she has had at least three other major roles in Lo que la vida me robó (2013 to 2014), Tres Veces Ana in 2016 where she played three roles as triplets who are anything but identical, and Amar a Muerte (Love to Death) from 2018 to 2019. Throughout her career trajectory, Boyer has done an impeccable job as both a villain and otherwise.
Beyond gaining global acclaim, her transition to mature roles also got her several choice awards. For her role in Teresa, Boyer won four awards: a Premios TVyNovelas for Best Actress, a Premios Bravo for Best Actress, a Premios Juventud for Best Couples (with Aarón Díaz and Sebastián Rulli), and a Premios ACE for Best Lead Actress. Six years later, Angelique received another Premios TVyNovelas Best Actress award for her role in Tres Veces Ana and took home the trophy once more in 2019 for Amar a Muerte.
Insights Into Her Family and Love Life
Beautiful and sexy with a string of successful telenovelas under her belt, Angelique Boyer has attracted a lot of her colleagues, some of whom she dated. Her first relationship that came to public attention was with Mexican-American singer and actor Diego Boneta, her Rebelde co-star. Shortly after their separation, she was rumored to be dating Drew Roy, but the claims were never validated.
With the end of her breakthrough project (Teresa) in 2011, Boyer began a relationship with the telenovela producer José Alberto Castro. However, her family, especially her dad wasn’t in support of their relationship because of the huge age difference between them. Boyer was 25 at the time while Castro was more than twice her age at 53.
Nonetheless, the pair managed to stay together until 2014 when the relationship ended, much to the delight of Boyer’s dad. Sadly for the actress, her mom Sylvie Rousseau died the same year. Boyer lost Sylvie to complications from heart disease, she was aged 49.
Amid her tragedy, Boyer found love in the arms of Sebastián Rulli, he is an Argentinian actor. The duo confirmed their relationship in September 2014. Telenovela fans first saw the chemistry between the two when they starred together in Teresa. Rulli was previously married to actress Cecilia Galliano with whom he had a son named Santi.
While Angelique Boyer was dating Castro, Rulli was with actress Aracely Arambula; they split in 2013, a year before Boyer and Castro. Since announcing their relationship to the public, the power couple has treated fans to many cute snaps of their intimate getaways. The real-life couple starred together in Tres Veces Ana.

Does She Have Any Kids?
