With an impressive body of work in film and television, Emily VanCamp has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after young talents. Upcoming VanCamp will be seen on the big screen in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the sequel to the Marvel's popular 2011 superhero film, "Captain America: The First Avenger." She will play Agent 13, alongside Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson. Marvel will release "Captain America: The Winter Solider" on April 4, 2014.
Most recently VanCamp wrapped production on the independent film "The Girl in the Book," directed by Marya Cohn, opposite Michael Nuqvist. But she is best known for her role in the ABC hit series "Revenge," where she stars as Emily Thorne, a mysterious woman who comes to the Hamptons to exact revenge on the people who destroyed her family. The series is a contemporary re-imagining of The Count of Monte Cristo, from a female perspective, created by "Swingtown" writer/creator Mike Kelley. The show will return in its third season this September.
VanCamp first won over audiences on the WB's critically acclaimed drama "Everwood," opposite Treat Williams and Gregory Smith, where she garnered Teen Choice Award nominations for Best TV Actress three years in a row.
Previously she starred on ABC's acclaimed hit drama series "Brothers & Sisters," opposite Sally Field, Rachel Griffiths, Rob Lowe and Calista Flockhart, playing Rebecca Harper. In addition she starred as the female lead in the ABC miniseries "Ben-Hur," which aired in Canada on CBC/BBC and in the United States in 2010.
In 2010, VanCamp starred in Jonathan Segal's drama "Norman," opposite Richard Jenkins and Dan Byrd.
