Emily: (on what she did between seasons two and three of Brothers and Sisters) I had all these big plans â€" I love to spend my time off traveling, running around the world â€" but I wanted to be with my family. So I spent the month at home in Canada, eating my momâ€™s home cooking.
Emily: (On the emotions needed for her role on Everwood) It's my job to dig down deep and find those parts of you. Everyone has an evil side, everyone has a drug addict in them. That's my job to find those characteristics and make them shine.
Emily: (on what kind of pet she'd like) My idea of a perfect pet is a really, really big dog! Huge! Unfortunately, I can't have pets right now. There's just not enough time with my schedule. For a while there I thought about getting a cat, but even that seems unfair.
Emily: (on her love of dance) I've been dancing my entire life. Jazz, hip hop, ballet. And then there's tap dancing. I love to tap. My ultimate dream is to do a musical like Singin' in the Rain.
Emily: (on her dream role) Really good movies come from Spain, and it is my dream to get a role from one of those.
Emily: (On her Everwood co-star Gregory Smith) We hit it off right away. There's really good chemistry between our characters, and he's also become a really good friend of mine. It ends there, though. I don't have a crush on him, although I think everybody should! He's so shy; he's going to love that.
Emily: I don't dig parties. I rather sit at home with my friends and a good movie. Movie night with my girlfriends are the best I know.
Emily: At a party, I am the kind of girl who will wait until the end of the night before I really get going. I'm a little anti-social at first, but I'm not immune to dancing on tables either.
Emily: The spotlight does put pressure on certain aspects of my life. I've given up looking for a boyfriend. That's not to say I won't be intersted if the right guy comes along. But I'm not in a hurry.
Emily: You put the picture of the ideal person in your head and then someone comes along and they don't fit that ideal at all. But somehow there is something about them that is so attractive. Everyone that I have fallen for has not fit that ideal at all.
