I’m pretty much going to say what I feel.
I remember thinking, in Kansas my name will be Evett – which is my middle name. I didn’t want to explain to anyone how to say Em-a-yat-zee.
I’m a tomboy at the end of the day, so anything that causes me to have to run around, fight people, roll in the dirt, hop a fence – I’m all for it. So I really would love to do an action film.
One of the roles I hold really close to my heart is a small ‘under-five’ role I did on ‘The Young and the Restless.’ I think I did about four episodes and it meant so much to me, simply because it was my mom’s all-time favorite soap.
After high school, I had $2,000 saved, and I packed everything I could into my ’95 Nissan Sentra with no air-conditioning, and I drove out to L.A.
Not long ago someone said I should shorten it to just Emma. But I really, really love my name. From as far as I can remember, my parents have taught me to be really proud of my name.
I just love drama. I love the idea of exploring relationships, whatever they may be. That’s fun for me.
Give up as much as you’re willing to receive back and give yourself, if that makes any sense. Whatever that is, don’t expect more from a person than what you’re willing to give, but give it knowing that you’re giving it – it’s been given, so don’t expect anything else.
