She worked the stage
Emma’s no stranger to the spotlight – she started learning drama in Phoenix, Arizona in 1999 at the Valley Youth Theatre (she took acting classes there with American Idol winner Jordin Sparks!) and got her first role at 11 as the hairy-chested Otter in “The Wind In The Willows.” We love how she’ll do anything for a laugh!
