Emily’s Inborn Passion

Even as a high-school girl, Emily O’Brien started to display traits of her inborn passion for acting. With her stage performances in plays at Carlsbard High School, she made her parents proud, who recall that acting is the only thing she wanted to do. Furthering her pursuit, she went on to do her theater majors in MiraCosta College.

“It's the talent and the passion that count in success”, said Ingrid Bergman. And that’s the case with Emily too. More than her awards and nominations, it’s her talent that speaks for her. Her roles ranging from Cosette in ‘Les Miserables,’ to Hodel in ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ and Gypsy Rose Lee in ‘Gypsy’ have confirmed this. She was named a finalist in the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival’s Irene Ryan Acting Competition in 2005. Her passion however, continued to impel her into pursuing bigger goals.

Emily O’Brien started to cast a spell in her on-screen character in ‘The Young and the Restless’, in April 2006; a soap opera in which she plays a girl named Jana Hawkes, who works at a coffee shop for a living. Her aptitude reflected in her presentation as Jana, and she won accolades for her performance in the role. She is also set to reach out to fans in the world of new media with ‘Coma’, a seven-part series, created exclusively for mobile-viewing. Emily O’Brien may have a long way to go in her journey to stardom. But all her fans will agree that she has long since proved her capability in this regard.
