Emma Bell

Born and raised in New Jersey, Emma Bell moved to New York City at the age of 16 to pursue her acting dreams. She attended a Performing Arts high school on the upper east side of Manhattan. After several Law & Order episodes, independent films and commercials, she finally landed the CW series, Bedford Diaries for producer Tom Fontana.

But it was her memorable turn as a German Holocaust prisoner in Boaz Yakin's 2008 Death in Love along side Jacqueline Bisset, Josh Lucas, Lukas Haas and Adam Brody that brought the critical acclaim. Death In Love, the story of a Jewish woman's holocaust past that shaped her life and subsequently the lives of her sons, premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

Bell was later cast in Elektra Luxxe directed by Sebastian Gutierrez, alongside Joseph Gordan-Levitt, Malin Akerman, Carla Gugino and Timothy Olyphant and appeared in roles on Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural.

In the winter of 2009, Bell starred in Frozen, written and directed by Adam Green, shot in the wintry tundra of Utah. The film, about three skiers who get stuck on a ski-lift in the middle of a snowstorm, also starred Shawn Ashmore and Kevin Zegers. Frozen had its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
