Fact: The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite novels.
Hometown: Port Perry in the Canadian province of Ontario, according to her Wikipedia entry.
Best Known For: Emily is best known for her work on two Greg Berlanti television projects -- co-starring in the WB drama Everwood for its entire run (2002-2006) and joining his subsequent ABC drama Brothers & Sisters (2006-2011) in its first season (after he'd been drafted as show-runner) and leaving early in its fifth and final season.
Piper Perabo and Jessica Paré, and Emily's character is auxiliary to them.
The Count of Monte Cristo. Revenge, it can definitively be said now and for all time, never looked so good.
Humble Beginnings: Early work as a child actress included the Canadian kids' horror series Are You Afraid of the Dark? Emily also appeared in the horror movie The Ring Two and the short film Rings (which spanned the period between the first movie and its sequel). In Lost and Delirious, she played the younger sister of Jessica Paré's character.
Obligatory Edgy Stuff: VanCamp was photographed in the nude -- though covered by a translucent silk sheet -- in the final nude celebrities issue of the now-defunct women's magazine Jane, and she talked about visiting European nude beaches in the text accompanying her photo. Of course, her Wikipedia entry notes that she was raised speaking French, so that's almost a given. [Oh, I kid our Strange and Savage Neighbo(u)rs to the North!]
Plus, you know, have you looked at her? ... While Emily is a beautiful young woman, she looks like a real person -- not the product of a team of plastic surgeons and makeup bought by the ton.
