Edurne Ganem, better known as Edy Ganem, is an American actress, known for her role as Valentina Diaz in the Lifetime comedy-drama series Devious Maids.
Life and career
Ganem was born in Modesto, California and raised in Torreón, Mexico along with her two younger brothers. She has Mexican and Lebanese heritage. She is a graduate of the University of San Diego. A Hollywood newcomer, Ganem's prior television work includes The Cleveland Show and Rob.
On Devious Maids, Ganem plays the positive, open-minded nineteen-year-old daughter and co-worker of Zoila Diaz (Judy Reyes) and love interest of Genevieve Delatour's (Susan Lucci's) son, Remi Delatour (Drew Van Acker). The Diazes both serve as maids to Delatours and the romance between Valentina and Remi is something that Zoila discourages.
On September 24, 2015 Ganem announced via Instagram that she was pregnant.
An Instagram photo posted in February 2016 revealed that she gave birth to a son.
