Emma had an interesting start in acting. When she was around eight years old, she asked her parents if she could have acting lessons. She was in the habit of starting a lesson (such as dance or piano) and then quickly giving it up. So her parents made a compromise: she could take acting lessons if she made the money for it herself. Emma rose to the challenge and began making paper maché hats. The Ottawa Citizen heard of it, and wrote an article on her. After that article, she quickly made the money she needed to go to acting lessons.
