Ruah was the only child of her parents; when she was a five-year-old girl, her family moved back to Portugal, but after her parents divorced, her father remarried and she got a stepbrother. She was raised in her parents’ Jewish religion, and attended an international English-meduim school and later St. Julian School in Carcavelos, near Lisbon.

At the age of 18 Ruah moved to London to attend college, then after graduation she returned to Portugal, and went on to appear in various soap operas and series, such as “Inspector Max”, “Dei-te Quase Tudo”, “Tu e Eu” and “Casos da Vida”.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on being a Portuguese Jew] There's I'd say between four- and five-hundred [Portuguese Jews]. Not a lot out of 10½ million to 11 million people. My family is probably the biggest family there. But coming from a small community makes you want to follow the traditions of your family much more.
