Early life, family and education
Emma was raised in Witney by her parents, about whom nothing’s known, as she respects their privacy. She hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
Emma grew up wanting to become a model, and both her parents and her peers encouraged her. She studied at West Witney Primary School, and in 2005 moved on to Wood Green School, where she was noticed by a modelling scout, and thus got to sign her first contract. She dropped out of school aged 16, but soon chose to go back. Upon matriculating in 2009, she focused solely on modelling, and it wasn’t until 2016 that she launched her acting career, with her portrayal of Pixie, in the short romantic film “Dreamlands”.

Emma made her debut TV series appearance in 2017, when she played Fay Brookstone in six episodes of the thriller drama “Clique”.

Emma’s second role was in the 2019 short drama “The Drink”, in which she starred alongside Will Nash and Rayna Campbell. It follows the colleagues Zoe and Jack who have gone out for a drink, when Zoe realizes that Jack has put something in her drink, wanting to drug her, and then abuse her.

Love life and husband
Emma prefers to keep the details of her love life to herself, and not a lot is known about the men (and women) whom she has perhaps been with.
It’s known that she was in a relationship with Jack Roth during 2017 and 2018. He’s a British actor, who’s most likely known best for his portrayal of Mythus, in the movie “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. The two occasionally spoke about their relationship while giving interviews, and could’ve been seen attending some of their red carpet events together. They haven’t been seen together since early 2019, and it appears that they broke up around that time.
There are some who believe Emma to be bisexual, as a fan has claimed to have seen her spending time with a woman, who could perhaps be her girlfriend. Emma hasn’t confirmed this, nor has any evidence been provided to support the claim.
As of June 2021, Emma seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
