Emily Ann Scott is an actress, screenwriter, and filmmaker working in Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Born and raised in the literal middle of nowhere – Shelbyville, Indiana – Emily graduated from Indiana University with a Theatre and Drama degree. She has worked as an actress in theatre, film, and television of all genres, but specializes in playing comedic best friends. Sweet, supportive, sarcastic, and sassy sidekicks are all directly in Emily’s substantial cinematic wheelhouse!
Emily began writing her own films when she realized the lack of complex women’s stories in mainstream media and decided to spread her feminist agenda as far as she could reach. She is an award-winning screenwriter with recognitions from competitions such as LA Cinefest and the Broad Humor Film Festival.
Highlights of Emily’s career so far include playing Patrick Wilson’s secretary in the feature film A Kind Of Murder, landing a role as a drunk, belching punk girl in the Amazon pilot Budding Prospects, and playing the lead role of Ellie in her own comedy web series REPRESENT, which is currently in the festival circuit and coming soon to a screen near you!
In her free time, of which she has none, Emily enjoys doing yoga, eating pad see ew, wearing pajamas at all hours, and reading pretty much anything with female-empowerment undertones.
