Emma Connell was born and raised in the Essex countryside where she still lives with her husband and three chickens. Since a child, Emma’s secret power has been a vivid and adventurous imagination, informing honest and emotional choices as both a creative, human being and a spontaneous actor. Curiosity and story-telling guide her career and shape both her interests in wildlife and the natural world. As an advocate of living truthfully and maintaining a methodical yet organic approach to life on the planet, Emma has also developed a manageable addiction to tidying.
Since completing her training at East 15 Acting School in 2010, Emma has been represented by one of London’s leading Talent managements. Her successful career in London as a British actor has strengthened in recent years particularly for Film and Television. Emma has also worked extensively for international, commercial brands including Netflix, Nescafe, Mini Cooper, and Persil.
