The 2020 reboot of the eponymous 1994 drama series, Party of Five, has been turning heads for the tasteful and touching way in which it deals with one of the great problems plaguing modern America: the Mexican refugee crisis.
One of the reasons why the series works so well is the performance of the lead cast- one of whom is Emily Tosta.
In this list, we look at seven facts about the 21-year-old Dominican native including her turn as Lucia Acosta in Party of Five.
The reboot of the 1994 drama series, Party of Five, revolves around the Acosta children as they deal with life when their parents are deported from the USA.
Tosta, Brandon Larracuente, Niko Guardado, and Elle Paris Legaspi play the siblings and their daily life struggles as children of deported immigrants form the crux of the story. Tosta plays Lucia Acosta in the show.
Emily Tosta's Instagram has skyrocketed since she gained wider recognition after finding fame. Her handle @emilytosta currently sits at 201k followers and her following is increasing by the day as she establishes herself in the acting world.
Party of Five is not Tosta's first foray into the bright lights of showbiz, as she was already a prominent member in the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, Mayans M.C.
In the show, she plays Leticia Cruz, daughter of Johnny Cruz, played by Richard Cabral, in seven episodes from 2018 to 2019.
Born as Emilia Gabriela Attias Tosta on March 26, 1998, in the Dominican Republic, her father, Jose Ramon Attias, is Dominican, and her mother, Emilia Tosta, is Venezuelan.
She took the part of Lucia Acosta in Party of Five as she is sympathetic to the plight of Mexican immigrants considering she is an immigrant from the Dominican Republic herself.

She is also an avid singer and takes ballet and yoga classes.
Still a novice in the industry, she only made her acting debut circa 2013. But she continues to impress with one star-making turn after another.
