Emily Alyn Lind’s body of work would be impressive for any Hollywood actress, but for a rising star of such a young age, it is quite remarkable. Emily will next star alongside Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson in the Warner Bros. film Doctor Sleep (2019). Based on the popular Stephen King novel, the film is the sequel to “The Shining.” Emily will also be seen in Facebook Watch’s “Sacred Lies: The Singing Bones” with Juliette Lewis. The show is based on The Brothers Grimm: The Singing Bones, but will also include inspiration from real-life murders. Later this year, Emily is set to begin production on Netflix’s horror comedy “The Babysitter 2,” where she will reprise her role of ‘Melanie’ from Netflix’s cult hit “The Babysitter.”

This year she also makes her debut as a musical artist. Emily co-writes her music, which is produced by Trizm (who has written and produced for Kanye, ASAP Rocky, DojaCat) and KoOoLkOjAk (who has written and produced for Spider Verse, Flo Rida, Sean Paul). Her first single is due out in the beginning of November.

Last year, Emily was seen in the sci-fi thriller film “Replicas” alongside Keanu Reeves and Alice Eve. In 2017, she starred in the New Line horror film “Lights Out.” In 2011, Emily played Shirley Temple in Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar,” opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. In 2012, she starred in “The Haunting in Connecticut 2” and opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal in “Won’t Back Down.” Following, Emily starred in the movie musical “Dear Dumb Diary,” based on the popular children’s book series; in “Jackie and Ryan” alongside Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes, which premiered at the 2014 Venice Film Festival; and in “Hidden” alongside Alexander Skarsgard and Andrea Riseborough. Emily began her acting career with the role of ‘Young Lily’ in “The Secret Life of Bees.” At the age of five years old, she played ‘Young Linda’ in Gaspar Noe’s “Enter the Void,” which premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Also in 2009, Emily ventured into television starring on the ABC series “Eastwick” and on the daytime drama “All My Children”.

Not only is Emily a talented young actress, but she feels strongly about giving back. She is passionate about the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Her love for Make-A-Wish began when she played the part of ‘Vanessa Marks,’ a young girl battling cancer, in the movie “November Christmas.” Emily created a ‘love box’ to keep on the set of “November Christmas,” which encouraged people to donate to the charity. Emily raised so much money that she decided that she would create a ‘love box’ for every set she was on.

Emily resides in Los Angeles with her mother and sisters Natalie Alyn Lind and Alyvia Alyn Lind who are also actresses.
