Emma has been called one to watch ever since her role in the 2007 film Introducing the Dwights. The film was a success at the Sundance Film Festival, and put the model and actress on the radar of American audiences. Before working in film, the former model began her acting career with the role of Dana Drysdale in the series “Bush Patrol” from 1996 to 1997. Her exposure in Introducing the Dwights brought more film roles and Booth starred opposite Clive Owen in the 2009 Australian drama The Boys Are Back. She also played Germaine Greer in Beebee Kidron’s 2010 drama Hippie Hippie Shake, a film that followed the experiences of Richard Neville in the 1960s. Booth returned to Australian television in 2010 on the crime drama Underbelly. She continued her film career with her role in the 2012 thriller, Parker and 2016’s Gods of Egypt and Hounds of Love, an Australian film recently selected to screen at the Venice International Film Festival.
