Emily O’Brien – The Roots

Emily O’Brien, the current leading lady of daytime soaps has quite interesting roots. She was born to a Persian mother and a British father and she owes her exotic good looks to them. Born and raised in Bedfordshire till she was 9 years old, she came to the United States with a pronounced British accent, which she tried to shed to be able to fit in; but it eventually was the factor behind her jump to fame. Her character in “Young and the Restless”, Jana Hawkes speaks with a British accent. Multilingual, Emily also speaks fluent Persian and also excels at French, Spanish and other European dialects.

Emily must be proud of her roots and her background, as her looks, language and talent have brought her where she is today– an Emmy nominee. It won’t be too long before she wins one.
