Born and raised in Montreal, Emily Hampshire has made an indelible mark on the Canadian film and television industry in a relatively short period of time. Her work has been recognized by the Canadian Academy of Cinema and Television with 3 Genie Award Nominations, a Gemini Award for her work on the small screen and was chosen by her peers in the Canadian Actors Guild as a nominee for Outstanding Female Performance at the ACTRA Awards.
She is most widely known to international audiences for her role as Vivienne Freeman opposite Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver in the Berlin Film Festival opener, “Snow Cake” (Revolution) and was most recently seen staring opposite Jay Baruchel in director Jacob Tierneys festival favorite, “The Trotsky” (Alliance / Tribeca Films).
Hampshire promptly re-teamed with Baruchel and Tierney for the directors next feature, “Good Neighbours” (Alliance / Magnolia Pictures). Her latest film, “Cosmopolis” directed by the legendary filmmaker David Cronenberg, had its world premiere at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival this past May.
