Emily is a native of Southern California, but lived all over the United States before she moved to Sweden when she was eight with her SoCal dad and Swedish mom. Raised bilingual in Swedish and English, she lived in Sweden until she was fifteen. She then returned to the US and was a drama major at LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, the “Fame” school, in New York City. She received her BFA in Acting at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). During her time at CalArts she co-created the performance company M.H.R with her fellow graduate Rose Arscott. Together they wrote, produced and acted in two original one-act plays; It's Not About Fucking Potter and An Interview. Next year you can catch Emily as Maggie in the independent film Mlk&Hny.
