Emily VanCamp’s Bio, Age
Emily Irene VanCamp was born on May 12, 1986, in Port Perry, Ontario, Canada. Her parents are Cindy and Robert VanCamp and she was raised alongside 3 siblings, an older sister Katie and younger sisters Alison and Molly. She started studying dancing at the early age of three with the aspiration of becoming a professional dancer. She got accepted at the École supérieure de ballet du Québec, the training program of ballet company Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal.
VanCamp’s interest in acting was birthed in 1998 when she visited her sister Katie on the set of a movie. Consequently, she began taking acting classes and also hired a talent agent. After appearing in a number of TV commercials, she marked her professional acting debut in season 7 of the fantasy series Are You Afraid of the Dark? (2000). This was followed by a role in the Emmy-nominated telefilm Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (2000) and a guest role in the sitcom Radio Active (2000). VanCamp marked her big screen debut in the drama film Lost and Delirious (2001) followed by minor roles in the horror series All Souls (2001) and the telefilm Redeemer (2002).
At age 15, Emily VanCamp landed her breakthrough role when she was cast as series regular Sam Dolan in the horror series Glory Days (2002). The show was very much shortlived as it was canceled after just 9 episodes, however, it afforded VanCamp the opportunity to prove her worth. Her Glory Days performance caught the attention of prolific writer and filmmaker Greg Berlanti who gave her a spot on the main cast of his upcoming show Everwood. VanCamp’s main role as Amy Abbott during the 4-year course of Everwood (2002-06) earned her much acclaim including 4 Teen Choice Award nominations and 1 Young Artist Award nomination. While working on Everwood, she had time to star in films like A Different Loyalty (2004), Rings (2005) and The Ring Two (2005).
Emily VanCamp got her next major TV role in the ABC drama series Brothers & Sisters (2007-10) starring as Rebecca Harper. During her 5-season run on the show, the talented actress also starred in the film Black Irish (2007) as well as the independent film Norman (2010) which earned her the Best Actress Awards at the San Diego Film Festival and the Breckenridge Festival of Film. VanCamp landed another major TV role in 2011 when she was cast as Emily Thorne/ Amanda Clarke in the ABC series Revenge (2011-15). Her performance on the show had her nominated for 2 Teen Choice Awards and one People’s Choice Award.
While her TV career continued to flourish, VanCamp got her biggest movie role yet in the superhero film Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) starring as Sharon Carter/Agent 13. The talented actress equally reprised her role in the film’s sequel Captain America: Civil War (2016). She also had starring roles in other films like The Girl in the Book (2015) and Boundaries (2016). In March 2017, VanCamp landed the female lead role in the medical drama series The Resident, starring as nurse practitioner Nic Nevin. Its first season debuted in January 2018 and after its conclusion in May 2018, the show was renewed for a second season.
Relationship with Joshua Bowman, Are they Married or Engaged?
Emily VanCamp has had her fair share of romantic involvements since shooting into the spotlight. Her most notable relationship yet is with English-born actor Josh Bowman. The duo met back in 2011 while on the set of the series Revenge. Their romance became public knowledge in early 2012 though it is believed in some quarters that they actually started dating in 2011.
This picture-perfect couple announced their engagement on May 11, 2017, taking their long-term romance to a whole new level. Interestingly, their characters in the series Revenge actually got married at some point and thus, it would be very fascinating to have this couple translate their on-screen romance to reality.
