It is a major international entertainment business, with much of its programming airing in the United States on Univision, with which it has an exclusive contract.



Moussier was born on August 23 in Leverkusen, North Rhine-Westphalia, West Germany. While still a very small child, Moussier and her mother left Europe and immigrated to Mexico. Moussier had a quiet childhood in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, but as a teenager she took an interest in acting and eventually moved to Mexico City, where she attended Televisa's Centro de Educación Artística. [1]

Mazatlán Place in Sinaloa, Mexico

Mazatlán is a city in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The city serves as the municipal seat for the surrounding municipio, known as the Mazatlán Municipality. It is located at 23°13′N106°25′W on the Pacific coast, across from the southernmost tip of the Baja California Peninsula.

Sinaloa State of Mexico

Sinaloa, officially the Estado libre y soberano de Sinaloa, is one of the 31 states which, with Mexico City, compose the 32 Federal Entities of Mexico. It is divided into 18 municipalities and its capital city is Culiacán Rosales.

The Centro de Educación Artística (CEA) is an entertainment educational institution in Mexico run by that country's major media conglomerate, Televisa. Located at the company's facilities in the San Ángel neighborhood of Mexico City, the school was founded September 26, 1978 and is an incubator for talent working for the network's famed telenovelas, dramas and comedies, along with the Mexican film industry and beyond.


Soon after graduating from CEA, Moussier found work as the co-host of Al ritmo de la noche with Jorge Ortiz de Pinedo. In 1996, she was cast in minor roles in Morir dos veces and Luz Clarita. The following year, Moussier portrayed the pianist Mireya Serrano in María Isabel. [1]

Moussier's recognition increased in 1998 when she was cast in El privilegio de amar as the sympathetic model Lorenza Torres, which some have referred to as Moussier's best role yet. [2] Moussier later won the award for Best New Actress at the 1999 Premios TVyNovelas ceremony for her portrayal of Lorenza. That same year, she took on the role of the adulterous Diana de Lizárraga in Mujeres engañadas, alongside Arturo Peniche.

The Premios TVyNovelas are presented annually by Televisa and the magazine TVyNovelas to honor the best Mexican television productions, including telenovelas. Instituted in 1983, the award ceremony rotates between Mexico City and Acapulco. The ceremony is broadcast through Canal de las Estrellas in Mexico and Latin America, and Univision in the United States. For the first time in its 30-year history, Canal de las Estrellas and Univision had broadcast Premios TVyNovelas simultaneously on April 28, 2013.

Arturo Peniche is a Mexican telenovela actor who became popular in Latin America during the 1990s. He is the brother of actor Flavio Peniche, who appears in the telenovela La Traición.

In 2001, Moussier joined the cast of El derecho de nacer (a remake of the 1981 telenovela) as Graciela, a seemingly demure secretary who, disguised as a nun, frequents Yucatec brothels in order to satisfy not only her clients' base desires, but her own as well. [2] The following year, she starred alongside César Évora and Susana González in Entre el amor y el odio , in which she portrayed the scheming Frida, the series' primary villainess, who plots alongside the odious Marcial (Alberto Estrella) to marry Évora's Octavio and gain control of his family's lands.

Following the August 2002 finale of Entre el amor y el odio, Moussier took a two-and-a-half-year hiatus from her career in order to give birth to, and care for, her newborn daughter. In February 2005, Moussier starred as Évora's ex-fiancée in La madrastra as the vain and haughty murder suspect Fabiola de Mendizábal, a character with hints of mental instability who nonetheless redeems herself by the novela's end and winds up happy with her equally suspicious husband, Bruno (René Casados). Three months later, she debuted in Piel de otoño as ambitious businesswoman Rebeca Franco, who carries on an affair with the heroine's villainous husband Ramón (Sergio Goyri).

<i>Piel de otoño</i> television series

After finishing Piel de otoño, Moussier took part in the theatrical play Hombres. [3] After giving birth to her second child, she returned to telenovelas late in 2006 as mafia boss Eva Santoro in Amar sin límites . The role marked a change for Moussier, as Eva Santoro was neither an unfaithful wife, nor a husband-stealer, nor a terrible mother. Despite her evil deeds, Eva became a popular character with the viewing audience, who came to view her more favorably than series heroine Azul (Karyme Lozano) and lamented her death. [2] For her work as Eva, Moussier was nominated at the 2007 Premios TVyNovelas for Best Actress in her antagonistic role. She briefly reunited with the cast of La madrastra and took up the role of Fabiola in order to re-film the final ten episodes of the telenovela, which was being re-aired at the time, and to provide a new resolution to the murder mystery. She joined the star-studded cast of the mini-novela Amor sin maquillaje as Beatriz, pairing up with Piel de otoño co-star Sergio Goyri. The telenovela honored the fiftieth anniversary of Televisa and telenovelas in Mexico.

In 2008, Moussier starred as Marissa in Las tontas no van al cielo , a character with which the actress professed to be enamored. [4] Marissa becomes a more sympathetic character after it is revealed that she was forced to have an unwanted abortion at the age of 15 and after her fiancé Santiago (Jaime Camil) leaves her pregnant at the altar for her friend, Candy (Jacqueline Bracamontes). However, much to Moussier's dismay, [4] After wrapping up the filming of Las tontas, Moussier replaced Edith González as the protagonist, Elena Tejero, in the musical play Aventurera, though she withdrew from the cast a few months later following a leg injury. [1]

In 2009, Moussier starred as the seductive, social-climbing Justina Almada de Huerta in Mi pecado . During the filming of Mi pecado, Moussier was diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome. Though she and producer Juan Osorio Ortiz initially altered her filming schedule in order to accommodate her recovery, she was forced to withdraw from the cast shortly before the finale. Her character, Justina, was not recast, as Osorio had planned in advance for the possibility of Moussier's departure. [5]

In 2011, she returned to Mexican telenovelas after she was diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome, starring in her first protagonist role as Eleonor Cortazar in Ni contigo ni sin ti . In March 2012, Moussier starred as the seductive, vain, haughty, ambitious, villainously, social-climbing and scheming Carmina Bouvier in Abismo de pasión , a remake of Cañaveral de Pasiones . Her character is mentally unstable, who nonetheless redeems herself. In 2013, she participated in Amores verdaderos as Bruna Cristo in a special appearance. In 2014, Moussier starred as the antagonist role of Perla in La malquerida . In 2015, Moussier is starring as the main antagonist Macaria, a seductive, hypocritical and cruel servant in Que te perdone Dios (a remake of 2000 telenovela Abrázame muy fuerte ).

Personal life

In 1999, Moussier began dating Rodrigo Santos, and though they moved in together, the couple split in 2002 after two-and-a-half years together. [6] Moussier started a relationship with Chilean businessman Jorge Peralta, [7] and the couple's daughter, Camila Peralta Moussier, was born on July 15, 2003 in Mexico City. [8] They later welcomed their son, Paulo Peralta Moussier, on July 3, 2006. [9] Moussier and Peralta subsequently split in January 2008, publicly announcing their separation a month later on February 19. [7] Although Moussier often referred to Peralta as her husband, [10] Peralta himself told gossip magazine TVnotas that the couple was never officially married, because Moussier and Peralta had cohabited for more than five years and had children together. They were required, under the Mexican Constitution, to formally divorce nonetheless. [11] Shortly after breaking up with Peralta, Moussier began dating a young man named Juan, [11] but they ended their relationship in 2009. [12]

In April 2009, Moussier became involved in a public and lengthy war of words with fellow actress Sherlyn, who brought a lawsuit against Moussier's former partner Peralta, accusing him of defrauding her of MXN$2 million while they were dating. [13] Moussier paid Peralta's debt herself and then publicly denounced Sherlyn when the younger actress did not immediately drop the charges against Peralta. [14] Peralta was eventually released from prison on May 14, [15] but Moussier later accused Sherlyn of violating the non-aggression pact that was included in the settlement of the lawsuit and threatened to reveal information that would ruin Sherlyn's career. [16] The two actresses eventually came to an understanding following a telephone call and subsequently called a truce. [17]

In late 2009, Moussier developed Guillain–Barré syndrome and was forced to alter her shooting schedule on Mi pecado in order to promote her recovery. [18] According to Juan Osorio, Moussier's illness traveled from her spinal cord to her brain, affecting her ability to remember her lines and causing her such pain that doctors were forced to put her under sedation. Additionally, he claimed that Moussier might be left paralyzed as a result of the illness. [5] [19] As a result of her worsening health, Moussier was forced to leave the cast of Mi pecado shortly before the completion of filming. [20] Moussier announced in late November 2009 that her health was improving and that she would not be left paralyzed, although she stressed that Guillain–Barré "is an illness that takes months [from which to recover]". [21] Although she had recovered from Guillain–Barré by March 2010, her health has been further complicated by a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. [22]
