Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to a diplomatic family, Emilie grew up all over the world. After graduating, Emilie knew she had to pursue her ever-growing appetite for acting. She made the choice to leave her native Denmark to move to Vancouver, Canada, where attended the Vancouver Film School.
Post film school, Emilie managed to secure a top-agent and was sent out on her first real-life audition to book at real-life job. And she did. This out-of-the-gates hot streak continued that same year when she booked leading roles in two tv-shows: jPod, and the world-wide sci-fi success, Sanctuary. jPod garnered her ‘Best Female Lead in a Dramatic Series’ at the Leo Awards, which celebrate excellence in film and television.
Emilie continued her journey and enjoyed versatility in her work bouncing between genres of drama, horror, action and comedy. She spent three seasons on the hit show Arctic Air as the lovably temperamental Swedish pilot, Astrid. A role which earned her multiple nominations for Leo Awards and UBCP Awards over several seasons of the series.
Next up, Emilie can be seen in the Netflix feature film, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, opposite Kevin James. She’s also in the feature film, Life on the Line, opposite John Travolta and Kate Bosworth. Her other credits include Battlestar Galactica (NBC), Supernatural (The CW), Signed, Sealed, Delivered (Hallmark), and Chesapeake Shores (Hallmark).
Emilie now splits her time between Los Angeles, and Vancouver.
