Fargo Season 2 will premiere on FX on Monday, October 12, 2015 at 10/9c.
Emily Haine is on the fast track to becoming a house-hold name booking most roles that she has auditioned for in her two years as an actor. Emily can be seen in her recurring role as Noreen Vanderslice on the Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winning FX hit television series “Fargo” premiering the second season on Monday, October 12 at 10et/pt 9 ct.
Although her success comes as a wonderful surprise to Emily, her mother predicted that 2015 was going to hold big changes for her since she was a child. Emily attributes her success to perpetual training, a close support group and perseverance.
Emily plays Noreen Vanderslice, an emancipated 17 year-old vegetarian working in a butcher shop in Luverne, Minnesota, USA 1979. She’s a bookworm with no filter and sharp wit. Shortly after she booked the role Emily received an email from creator/show runner Noah Hawley with a wealth of literary, musical and historical references for her character Noreen. Working on a character with such depth and scope is a dream come true for Emily.
Emily is grateful for the camaraderie and creative insights shared with her by “Fargo” lead Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man 2), on the first day that Emily walked into the makeup trailer, Kirsten immediately introduced herself and shared her informed perspectives on Emily’s character, which had a great impact on Emily.
Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights) was another consummate professional who went out of his way to welcome Emily onto the “Fargo” set and generously collaborated on grounding and acting techniques with her. Emily feels privileged and inspired to be part of such incredible talent.
Last year Emily played the role of Keenan on CW’s “The 100”. Initially she was booked for one episode but once the producers saw her performance they booked additional episodes. Emily says, “I believe if you show up, work hard and have a love for your craft, good things are primed to happen.”
Most recently Emily has been shooting the feature film “Gregoire” directed and written by the talented Cody Bown, who has had three films screen at Cannes Film Festival in the past three years. The film is shot by cinematography Jan Klompje. Emily plays one of the lead roles of Alexa, a conflicted young 20 year old, trapped by circumstance in her hometown of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Her character is sharp-tongued and self-involved. Emily found it fascinating to get into the mind of a person who portrays themselves as indestructible. “Gregoire” is scheduled for release and the film festival circuit in 2016.
Cody says, “I got to meet up with Emily just to talk about the project and share philosophies and as every second went by I realized more and more that she was the perfect choice for this role and no one else could have been this character but her. During the off days, seeing the prep work she was doing for the next days scenes as well as overall character development and prep made my job a lot easier to work with someone who ‘gets it’. This hard work paid off and the results will show on the screen. She put her heart and soul into this character and I couldn’t have asked for more. “
Another role that Emily is proud of is in an experimental short film as the solitary lead in “Milkhoney” that was an official selection of the Miami Fashion Film Festival in 2014.
As a kid Emily was pulled out of ballet because she was too wild however she thrived in musical theatre because it was the one of the few places that embraced her eccentricities. After completing school Emily bought a one-way ticket to Frankfurt, Germany. After a year spent traveling and living out of a backpack and came to realize life is really one long crazy dream and that she only had to give herself over to it. She obtained a UK visa, moved to London where she was accepted into to the full time program at The Actors Temple, a private Meisner studio in the West End.
Last year multi-talented Emily was a full time student at Emily Carr University for Design. She also played bass and sang in Eric Campbell and the Dirt and can be heard on the band’s second studio album recorded at Eagletime Records.
Emily grew up in Richmond, B.C. and now resides in East Vancouver. B.C. with her kitten named Clementine Cuddlebutt.
