The daughter of a Naval officer and a nurse, Emma has been racking up small screen credits since the age of 17 when she landed the part of Becky Radcliffe in school soap Grange Hill. Her knack for comedy led to a stint on Days Like These, a remake of That 70s Show, and she went on to appear in several sitcoms, such as Beast and The Worst Week Of My Life. More serious roles the Plymouth-born star has undertaken include historical drama Riot At The Rite and a turn as royal mistress Nell Gwyn in Charles II: The Power And The Passion. When not lighting up the screen Emma loves rock climbing and scuba diving. She's also a keen photographer.
