Emily grew up in Birmingham and it did not take her very long to have her first taste of the stage. At the age of only 7 months she was touring with the RSC and her musical director father (Stephen Owens), going on in the arms of Julius Caesar to rally the crowds in one of the character's famous speeches. As well as watching her dad perform in a variety of shows for the RSC, the West End and various touring houses whilst growing up she was also taught how to sing from her Opera Singer mother (Sarah Wright-Owens) - it's no wonder she decided to pursue a career on the stage and attended Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, graduating in 2014.
Emily has always loved performing - from singing to strangers in restaurants when she was 3, joining the City of Birmingham Symphony Youth Chorus at the age of 9, playing the French Horn in several Youth Orchestras, and joining various Midland's based Youth Theatres. She has always been a very determined individual, an attribute one has to possess when attempting a career in this industry and particularly if, like Emily, you were born with one hand and have to adapt the most mundane things.
Since graduating she has performed in a variety of shows, ranging from; an all-female production of 'Henry V' at The Union Theatre, a site specific performance of new play 'The Den', workshopping new play 'Dying Out Loud' at Theatre Royal Stratford East, understudying the two soprano's in The RSC's 'The Tempest' at The Barbican and currently can be seen performing in the Ensemble of the UK and International tour of Les Miserables as well as covering Madame Thenardier.
