An Amazing Vegan Doing Amazing Things
Vegan actress, singer, TV host, and comedienne Stephanie Gerard was born in Mexico City. Her mother is from Monterrey, Mexico, and her father, from Cannes, France. Stephanie’s parents moved to the small town of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada when Stephanie was 6 months old. At age 5 Stephanie started singing, playing the piano and the guitar.
She lived in Canada for 7 years before returning to Mexico where she lived for six additional years before moving several more times. Later on, her parents enrolled her in a regular school where she took acting, ballet, and hip hop classes. Stephanie speaks five languages: Spanish, English, French, German, and Italian, and has lived in France, Germany, Switzerland, and since 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
Stephanie’s love for music developed as a baby listening to The Beatles. As a child, she sang in the church choir. Singing and performing on big stages became her main focus. Stephanie pursued her musical training in every country she lived in by attending music schools and receiving private lessons. Her training in song includes teachers such as Enrique Del Olmo, Alfredo Algarín, Erick Guecha, and the amazing vocal coach Roger Love in Los Angeles.
For piano, guitar, and upright bass training, she attended the Fermatta School in Mexico City and trained with Jorge Guerra, Sadoc García, and Gary Nestruk.
Professional training in theater includes working with Virginia Fabregas as well as a year in France at Cours Florent as well as 3 years of Dramatic Arts at the Educational Center of Arts (CEA-Televisa) in Mexico City. She is also trained to do trapeze, aerial silks, and contortion as well as yoga. While living in Mexico she reached a limit to where her abilities could take her in that country. By that time she had already toured all over Mexico and Latin America, recorded 9 albums including a Beatles tribute where she received congratulations from Sir Paul McCartney. She released a couple of songs on Spotify that she co-wrote with the award-winning songwriter Luciano Luna with Mariachi.

She has hosted multiple Tv Shows including “Tengo Talento Mucho Talento”, “El Mameluco”, “Buenos Dias Familia” in Estrella Media for National Tv, and the Entertainment Morning TV Show “En Vivo” from Monday through Friday live at 7 am.
An avid environmentalist and animal rights activist, Stephanie supports the ASPCA, the Humane Society, the World Animal Protection, PETA, NARD, California Community Foundation, World Wild Life Fund, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), and Greenpeace.
