Born and raised near New Orleans, Louisiana, Emily Stokes is an actor, singer and writer.
Emily traveled the US in dream roles such as Christine in Phantom, Belle in Beauty and the Beast, and Marian in The Music Man (putting that opera degree from Indiana University to good use), and is now based in NYC.
At home on the stage and screen,, she plays opposite Fright Night star, William Ragsdale in the indie thriller, When We Dance The Music Dies, and you may have seen her on the ID Network in The Perfect Murder, Dryden and Primal Instinct as victims or girlfriends of victims (always the victim, never the killer but…a girl can dream).
Emily is creator and writer of Against The Grain, a new web series in development about a whip-smart event planner whose dream job becomes a reality just as she gets a life-altering diagnosis, and a writer for Thank You Five, a new anthology series about stage managers.
Offscreen, Emily teaches pilates through her company #StokedAboutFitness. And no she does not sit still, except to snuggle Rosie, her 12lb Chiweenie. See her insta for puppy cuteness.
