Emmett Scanlan

Emmett was born in Dublin at a very young age in 1979. The age of Aquarius.

He resisted his full potential every minute of every day in a number of schools which held as much interest for him as a documentary on braiding hair. He was introduced to movies at the modest age of 7 with such greats as 'Nightmare On Elm Street', 'Dawn Of The Dead' and 'Jaws'. Rocky was genuinely his inspiration; Sylvester Stallone his hero. From that moment on he wanted to act. He wanted to be a hero, without the hard work and graft that real life insists upon.

Emmett got his first taste for acting in a school musical, which is probably the time he got his first taste for women. Yet another incentive. After his stunning daughter Kayla was born in 2002 he went into acting full time. He says, 'Seeing as how I had more responsibility I thought it only right to take up acting!' He says, 'I want to make a body of work that I can be proud of, that my family can be proud of. I love it. I can't do anything else. This is who I am'.
