Actresses that I absolutely adore - That’s my job as an actress, to challenge myself and do different things, even though it’s different than what people assume I’m inclined to do. It was exciting for me because it was a challenge to stretch people’s imaginations, and their preconceived notions that I’m a “good girl,” and that I always play very likable, nice characters. And, Shameless and Beautiful Creatures was the start of a new kind of character for me. It’s a little bit edgier, a little bit more indulgent of your dark side. […] I would say that I enjoy material when it’s strong, I enjoy being challenged. I’m drawn to tough roles.. it doesn’t mean I’m tough.
‘They didn’t want to see me; they wouldn’t even (let me) audition. They thought my image too glamorous, that I couldn’t not be pretty’
This video has a short clip from Before I Disappear at 2:09 (a scene between Emmy’s character and Shawn’s) so I thought some people might be interested.
Our lovely friend Fran located this video that contains a clip of Emmy in Before I Disappear… check it out!
Being yourself is one of the hardest things because it’s scary. You always wonder whether you’ll be accepted for who you really are.I don’t think you ever succeed at trying to be anyone else but who you truly are.
