Who is Loreto Peralta?
American-Mexican actress Loreto Peralta Jacobson was born in Miami, Florida USA, on 9 June 2004, meaning that her zodiac sign is Gemini. She has 12 acting credits and is perhaps known best for her debut film appearance starring as Maggie in the 2013 comedy movie “Instructions Not Included”, which also starred Eugenio Derbez and Karla Souza, and was written and directed by Eugenio. It follows a man who’s been raising his daughter alone for the last six years when she was abandoned on his doorstep, while her mother has now resurfaced and wants to take her away; the movie won five of its seven award nominations.

Education and early life
Loreto was raised in Miami alongside her brother Carlos Peralta, by their mother Greta Jacobson and father Juan Carlos Peralta; Loreto’s a great-granddaughter of Alejo Peralta, the late Mexican businessman, and the granddaughter of Carlos Peralta, who was also a Mexican businessman.
She was eight while shooting for the movie “Instructions Not Included”, and her mother thus accompanied her throughout the shooting; it was the film’s writer and director Eugenio Derbez who discovered Loreto, as he tweeted about looking for a girl with blonde hair and green eyes who could speak both Spanish and English.
Loreto’s been active in the film industry ever since. She attended a local high school in Florida and upon matriculating in 2022 focused on acting rather than enrolling at college.
Roles in movies
Loreto voiced Alimitra in the popular 2014 animated drama “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet”, which starred Liam Neeson and Salma Hayek, and was written and directed by Roger Allers. It follows artist and poet Mustafa who’s embarked on a journey home with his daughter and housekeeper, and the movie won one of its 11 award nominations.
The year 2015 saw Loreto appear in the short comedy “Soy Menor de Edad Loreto Peralta” and another short comedy “Soy Estudiante Loreto Peralta”, and the same year heard her voice Gabby in the animated adventure fantasy “Guardians of Oz”, which starred Jordan Ancel and Dino Andrade, and was directed by Alberto Mar. It follows winged monkey Ozzy who’s trying to stop the plans of evil Evilene with the help of Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Woodman, and the film was nominated for two awards.
In 2016, Loreto portrayed one of the lead characters Elle in the adventure fantasy “The Little Mermaid”, which starred William Moseley and Poppy Drayton, and was directed by Blake Harris. It follows a girl and her uncle who’ve discovered a creature whom they believe to be the real little mermaid.

Love life and relationships
Loreto avoids speaking about her love life in public, but most of her fans believe that she’s today in a relationship with Mexican actor Leonel Martinez, who’s just recently launched his acting career and thus has only a single credit, portraying Nightclub Fan in the 2019 crime thriller movie “Emulator”.
Loreto and Leonel have been seen spending time in public together on multiple occasions, but neither has addressed the rumors of them being in a relationship, nor has any evidence been provided to support these claims; this hasn’t prevented Loreto’s fans from firmly believing that she and Leonel are ‘together’.

Loreto loves animals and her favorites are dogs.
