Emma Kenney

Born in Manhattan, Emma Kenney realized her passion for performing at age four. Since then, she has appeared in numerous national commercials as well as voiceovers. She has recurred on BOARDWALK EMPIRE and voiced the character Marigold on the Twentieth Century Fox animated feature EPIC.

 

In addition to acting, Kenney also has enthusiasm for being behind the camera. Emma directed her first movie, THE NEW GIRL IN TOWN, which was honored as a finalist at the 2009 New Jersey International Film Festival, making Emma the youngest filmmaker ever to receive that honor. Due to her directorial success, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, FOX-5 TV in New York, and NEW JERSEY MONTHLY MAGAZINE all featured stories on Kenney's accomplishment.

 

When she is not acting or directing, she loves playing with her animals (one day, she hopes to open an animal shelter, but for the time being she is volunteering in one on weekends). Kenney is now splitting her time between New Jersey and Los Angeles.
