Childhood, Youth, Family

Emma was born in the spring of 2002 to Jeremy Myers and Nicole Cassimatis in Orlando, Florida. She has Greek roots on her mother's side. Besides her, the parents raised three more daughters – Avery, Olivia, and Isabel. Later, the whole family moved to Atlanta.

Emma received her primary education at home and, according to her, turned into a "nerd and introvert". She had an overactive imagination and spent her free time on the computer, loved "The Lord of the Rings", "Star Wars" and computer games about orcs, titans, and superheroes.

In middle school, Emma became interested in emo culture and bands like Twenty One Pilots, Panic at the Disco, and Fall Out Boy. On YouTube, Myers could spend hours listening to Dan and Phil's show and when she first saw them live at a concert, she bought various merch with their images. But when she wore a t-shirt with portraits of her idols to dance class rehearsal, the other kids, to put it mildly, did not share Emma's enthusiasm. She later recalled:
I was kind of an outsider because I was more passionate about things than the average kid. And I was bullied for it. Some people can't let go of the fact that people like things that make them happy.
Despite being involved in choreography and participating in school productions, she preferred solitude to socializing with her peers. After school, Myers earned a Master of Arts degree in acting from Brooklyn College and McGill University.

Acting Career

Emma landed her first minor roles in 2010, in the movies "Crooked" and "Letters to God," as well as in the TV series "The Glades."

A notable experience for Emma was filming the thriller "Girl in the Basement," where she played one of the central roles - Marie Cody. The film, based on true events, tells the story of young Sara, who was held captive in a basement by her tyrannical father for over twenty years.

Emma Myers' breakthrough came in 2022. Learning that her beloved Tim Burton was planning to shoot a Netflix series about the Addams family, she auditioned. After several Zoom calls, including a script reading with Jenna Ortega, who was cast as Wednesday and who Myers thought had become angry with her ("I literally hung up and started crying," she recalls), Emma found out she had been cast as Enid.
I answered the call, and my representative said, 'Hold on, there's something wrong with my phone, so I'll call you back in a second.' She calls me back and asks, 'Do you think you'll have this problem when you're in Romania?' I remember a wave of excitement washing over me, I ran out of the room and screamed, 'Mom, I did it!'
The series, titled "Wednesday," was released at the end of 2022. The plot centers around Wednesday Addams, who is sent to a boarding school for children with "specialties" as a punishment. Enid Sinclair - her roommate and the total opposite of the gloomy and introverted Wednesday. Werewolf Enid is optimistic, sweet, bright, with bubbling energy. Emma invented a more colorful style for her character, painting her nails and hair in different colors.

On set, Myers worked with Georgie Farmer, who played her love interest Ajax, and was very nervous when filming scenes with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Christina Ricci. But the famous colleagues were attentive and helped Emma cope with her on-camera jitters.

Unnoticed, the young actress befriended Jenna, as well as Percy Hynes White and Jonna Dia Watson. Off-camera, the group would throw parties, play video games, and celebrate birthdays together.

The series was incredibly successful, and in 2023, Myers starred in two main roles in the comedy "Family Switcj" (as CC Walker) and the biographical drama "Southern Gospel" (as Angie Blackburn). Reflecting on how busy she was, to the point that she didn't realize how popular "Wednesday" had become, Emma said:
...I only really realized how well it was doing some time later, because not even a week after 'Wednesday' came out, I was already flying to Los Angeles to film, and I was just swamped with material. So, I didn't really keep track of how well it was all going. By the Christmas holidays, when I was able to come home and see my family and all that, it hit me: 'Oh, wow. In just a month, it has become the top show on Netflix.' It was madness.

In addition to this, Emma excitedly announced that she would appear in the second season of "Wednesday", although she has no idea what the new episodes will be like:
They wrote to my email, and I was like, 'Oh, cool'... I felt that it would happen. I think everyone felt that it would happen. I thought about it even before we finished filming, simply because of the material we were shooting. I knew it would be grand, but I didn’t know it would be on such a scale. I was sure that there must be more, because we all liked every bit of it, and we really felt that people like it too.
