The reboot of Party of Five has officially aired, starring a group of largely new actors taking on the roles of the recently orphaned Acosta children. The plot, much like the cast, has been updated from the original sitcom, which followed the Salinger children after they lost their parents to a car accident. The Acosta kids, however, face a different and extremely pertinent issue happening in modern-day America: their parents are deported by ICE.
It turns out that Emily Tosta, who plays Lucia, has a shared experience with her new character.
Emily Tosta Age
The actress was born on March 26, 1998, making her a 21-year-old Aries.
Emily Tosta Nationality
Tosta was born in the Dominican Republic, and shares Venezuelan roots through her mother, Emilia. The actress arrived in the United States at the age of 12 with her mom to pursue her dream of acting. She secured a work visa shortly after arriving, and was able to get it extended to her mother. Both women share the same citizenship status today.
Refinery29 reports that the Mayans M.C. star has, much like her Party of Five character, channeled her immigrant experience, as well as all of the struggles she has endured as a Latina woman in Hollywood, to help the community. She founded Karttos International, a charity dedicated to sending care packages to Venezuela, a country currently in the midst of a severe refugee crisis. She also recently partnered with the Eddie Guardado Foundation, the charity set up by the family of her Party co-star Niko Guardado, for a celebrity bowling tournament.
