Toni Pearen is an Australian actress/singer/TV presenter born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia on June 5, 1972.

Toni has recently performed wearing an engagement ring, and appears to have quietly become engaged to longtime boyfriend and Darling Harbour restaurant co-owner Will Osmond. They have jointly acquired property, and now reside together on Scotland Island in NSW.

Toni began her singing/acting studies at Lynda Keane Studios Sydney with Lynda Keane and Greg Anderson. She learnt dance,singing and acting whilst at this studio. Lynda Keane and her husband Greg had a daughter Brooke who also worked opposite Toni in E Street as the young Brookie.

Pearen, came to be known in 1989 when she landed the role of Toni Windsor on the Australian soap opera E Street.

After she left E Street she became a success in the Dance Pop scene in 1992/93, scoring 2 consecutive top 10 Gold hits in Australia with "In Your Room" (#10 in January 1993) and "I Want You" (#10 in April 1993). This was followed by two less successful singles "Walkaway Lover" (#35 1994) and "Joy" (#71 1995). Her 1994 album "Intimate" (#56) was well received by critics but sold poorly.

By 1994 she briefly returned to TV, this time playing Beth Armstrong on Home and Away. She also appeared in a couple of films, All Men Are Liars and On the Dead Side, in 1995.

From 2000 to 2006, Pearen lived in Los Angeles, working as a singer and songwriter. In 2006, she moved back to Australia, to live on Scotland Island, NSW. Whilst overseas she had one mishap involving a gentleman who left her high and dry in a south american jail (whilst on holiday) which was due to a visa bungle. But since then she has met a wonderful man who she will be marrying in November.

In 2003 Pearen returned to TV, this time as host of Nine's Australia's Funniest Home Video Show, In an interview with MSN Australia, she said the show was a perfect fit for her, and it "reminds us that strange things happen every day, and you need to laugh."

In late 2003, it was reported that Pearen was aiming to revive her music career in the near future. It was revealed that part of the reason for her hiatus in the United States was to find the time to write new music. Although she has made musical performances at Carols by Candlelight in 2003 and ABBA Mania in 2006, very little of her plan has been confirmed since then.
