With her work described as “subtle”, “layered”, “lovely” and “honest”, Emma is a master of acting between and beyond lines of dialogue to draw the audience into the believable, complex and enticing characters that she creates.
In Emma’s most prominent role to date - lead in the short film “La Cartographe”, which premiered at the prestigious Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland and subsequently showed at a number of other festivals including the Vancouver International Film Festival and the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma where it was a Jury Special Mention - her work in the moody, atmospheric film was described as "sublime" and "poetically contemplative" (click here to read more from writer / director Nathan Douglas).
Flourishing in indie, thought provoking roles, Emma’s range extends from wholesome girl next door - art imitating life there for the straight-A high school valedictorian – to horror/thriller genre “girl with a dark secret”, where her youthful, innocent appearance allows her to really hit the mark and enjoy playing a character so opposite from her usual cheerful self. With a solid work ethic and a kindness towards all that comes naturally, Emma is a great collaborator, leaving a strong, positive connection with everyone she meets.
Emma was born in Minnesota but grew up in a small town surrounded by mountains east of Vancouver before moving to the city (yes, that means dual citizenship!). For someone who loves the outdoors, hiking, snowboarding, and swimming in frigid rivers have been and continue to be enjoyable pastimes.
