Élodie Frenck was born in 1974 in Lausanne, the daughter of Nahum Frenck, a Peruvian pediatrician and family therapist emeritus, and Sylviane Roche, French, who also gave birth to her brother Emmanuel. Her parents, who divorced when she was 2 years old, received shared custody — a first in 1985, reported in the TV show Tell Quel aired by TSR.

Frenck obtained her baccalauréat in 1993. She studied drama at the Belle de Mai, then at the Cours Florent from 1994 to 1997. She took part in a Swiss improvisation league from 1989 to 1997.

She made herself known on television and was gradually offered theatre and film roles. In 16 September 2013 she won the Prix jeune espoir féminin (Aspiring Young Female) at the Festival de la Rochelle for her portrayal of Marlène in the France 2 show Les Petits Meurtres d'Agatha Christie.[1][2][3]

She was in Thailand when the tsunami of 2004 struck, making her a survivor of the event.[4]

On 16 September 2011, she gave birth to her son Abel. In December 2016, she announced that she was expecting another child, giving birth to her second son Esteban Abraham in March 2017. Her second son is the third son of her husband Hervé Ruet.[4]
