— Emily VanCamp

Emily Irene VanCamp (born May 12, 1986) is a Canadian actress. She is best known for her roles as Amy Abbott on the WB series Everwood (2002-2006), and more recently for her role as RebeccaHarper in the ABC series Brothers & Sisters (2007-2010). She starred as Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke in the ABC drama hit series Revenge.

Life & Career

The role for which VanCamp is perhaps best known is her character Amy Abbott in the WB Television Network's drama Everwood. In 2007 she was a guest star in an episode Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

In 2007, VanCamp joined the cast of Touchstone Television's large ensemble series Brothers & Sisters] as a regular late in the season, a move that marks her second teaming with Executive Producer Greg Berlanti (they were previously paired on Everwood). VanCamp's character was introduced as Rebecca Harper, the daughter of the late William Walker (Wikipedia:Tom Skerritt) and his secret mistress, Holly Harper (Patricia Wetting), though it is later discovered that this is incorrect through a DNA test done in 2008. It was announced in early 2010 that she would be leaving the show, and would appear in three episodes of the fifth season to wrap up her character's storyline.

In 2009 she starred in a post-apocalyptic movie Carriers. She starred in a Hall of Fame] movie, titled Beyond the Blackboard, with her former Everwood co-star, Treat Williams, which aired on CBS, April 24, 2011.

In 2011, she was cast as the lead in ABC's drama series Revenge. It was given a series order in May.

In 2017, she was cast in a main role as Nurse Nicolette in the FOX drama The Resident.


  • VanCamp appeared in the short film Rings which bridged the gap between The Ring and The Ring Two, the latter of which saw her reprising her character from the aforementioned short film. She also appeared in the 2006 film Black Irish as the character Kathleen.
  • Along with Ashley Madekwe, VanCamp is one of only two Revenge regulars who has the same first name as her character. But in Vamcamp's case Emily is an alias with her character's birth name being Amanda.

Personal Life

VanCamp was raised speaking French and speaks the language fluently. She has three sisters; Molly, Katie and Alison.

She is currently engaged to Josh Bowman who plays Daniel Grayson her ex-husband on Revenge
