Heyo!

Emmanuelle Headshot b.jpg

Emmanuelle (she/they) is an actor, writer and maker with a passion for telling stories that blend the playful with the political, and a love of young, queer audiences. 

Her debut work as a playwright, Trophy Boys, a queer black comedy and drag extravaganza about power, privilege and high school debating is returning to tour nationally in 2024, after playing to sold-out Melbourne audiences and critical acclaim. It was awarded BroadwayWorld Australia's Best New Play in Melbourne, and was nominated for four GreenRoom Awards including Best New Writing and Best Production. 

 

"★★★★★ Hilarious, devastating and a revelation... Drag at its most satirical and incisive... The script is powerful and ferociously intelligent." - The Age

"An absolute tour de force of satirical genius" - Theatre Travels

She is a current member of Sydney Theatre Company's Watershed: Writers Group, Malthouse Theatre's Emerging Writers Group and was the recipient of the 2023 Equity Foundation Scholarship to study at the Atlantic Acting School in New York. 

Best known for playing the lead role of Marnie in three seasons of the International Emmy nominated tween series Mustangs FC  (ABCMe x Matchbox Pictures), other performance credits include The Messenger (ABC), Surviving SummerClickbait (Netflix), and Ms Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries (Acorn TV).

She wrote and directed kids-comedy short film, The Odyssey, which was commissioned by The Melbourne Queer Film Festival and Victoria Together. It has since been awarded Best Youth Film at the St Kilda Film Festival, Best Film at the Bendigo Queer Film Festival and Best Diversity Award at the WIFT V-Fest. Her other film work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW, produced for the RSPCA, and played in festivals world-wide. 

A voiceover artist with a passion for children's fiction, accents and silly voices, Emmanuelle is the narrator of The Travelling Bookshop and Me and the Robbersons kids series, The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding, and works commercially. 

She is currently teaching the Youth Ensemble at 16th Street Actors Studio, and coaches privately, with a focus on supporting young and emerging actors.
