  • Emily Rose Maier was pursued by acting agents from Los Angeles while she was attending high school in Seattle, however, Emily chose to attend Vanguard University instead of plunging directly into an acting career at a young age. Emily states her reason for going to Vanguard was to "have that time where I was being built up as a Christian. I didn't want the world to get to me at such a young age."

    After graduating from Vanguard she chose to attend UCLA because of its avenues into film acting. Since completing her master's degree in film at UCLA in 2006 she has appeared on cable and network television, stage productions and as the voice of a video game character.moreless

    • Emily: (on learning about the volatility of life as a working actress) UCLA teaches really well to never sit around waiting for someone to hire you. They tell you to go out and create your own work, and they show you how to do that.

    • Emily: (about enjoying the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles without getting swept up in it) If you're so freaked out about your job and so freaked out about your career and so freaked out about obtaining things, you're going to eventually crash into those things. The minute we start caring for people instead of caring about obtaining something, then I think we're in the right place.

    • Emily: (on choosing her roles) When I do work I want to be able to call my grandparents and say, Watch this. I want the stuff I'm putting out there to make people think. I want to make choices in my career that are true to my artistic integrity.

    • Emily: (on being content with not being a regular on a TV show) I guess financially it would be great to be on a show permanently, but I like what I've done because I got it on my resume and now I'm free to do what I want.

    • Emily: (On what drew her to the character of Elena in the "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" video game) It's really odd; they had so many cool artists renderings on the table and I still remember to this day picking up that paper and looking right at her and going, "That is totally me! That's so me! If I don't get this part, I won't understand why. This is so me." She like this resourceful, spunky little adventurous girl with a camera in her hand and what's funny is I love taking pictures and it's totally me. And when I looked at her, I was like, "This girl is totally me and I just need to be myself."
