Emily Faris is a recent graduate from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) BFA Acting program. While at CalArts she co-created, and performed in two original one-acts; It's Not About F**king Potter and An Interview. Before returning to her Southern California roots, Emily but lived all over the United States before moving to Sweden at age eight with her SoCal dad and Swedish mom. Raised bilingual in both Swedish and English, Emily lived in Sweden until age fifteen when she moved back to the US with her family. There, in NYC, she was a drama major at LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, the "Fame" school, in Manhattan. With a solid connection to both her Swedish and American backgrounds, Emily hopes her career will allow her to work in both countries and in both languages.
