Emmanuelle Chriqui might not possess the most impressive resume in town, but she's slowly gaining ground as one of Young Hollywood's most exciting new talents. Born in 1977 in Montreal, Canada, Emmanuelle realized at a young age that she wanted to act, but because her parents couldn't afford proper lessons, she had to rely on her older brother to pay for the classes out of his own pocket. Working as a waitress while auditioning for television shows, Emmanuelle eventually landed roles in Canadian-produced series like “Forever Knight,” “Kung Fu: The Legend” and “Psi Factor.”
At the end of the 1990s, Emmanuelle finally got her big Hollywood break when she was offered a supporting role in the KISS-themed comedy, “Detroit Rock City.” Bigger parts in films like “Snow Day” and “100 Girls” followed, and she even filmed a scene for Steven Spielberg’s “AI” that was cut from the final theatrical version. And though she did co-star in the unofficial ‘N Sync movie, “On the Line,” Emmanuelle’s next significant role didn’t come for another three years when she appeared alongside Eliza Dushku in the cannibal horror flick, “Wrong Turn.” Since then, Emmanuelle has been getting some pretty high-profile work, including a recurring role on the HBO comedy “Entourage,” and it’s only a matter of time before we see even more of this talented Moroccan beauty.

Emmanuelle Chriqui on the Screen
Along with more recent roles on the hit shows "Entourage" and "The O.C.," Emmanuelle has also made appearances in films like the restaruant comedy "Waiting...," the teen horror flick "Wrong Turn," the MTV-generation snowboarding film "Snow Day," and the much-underrated John Woo TV flick, "Once a Thief."
Emmanuelle can currently be seen in the seventh season of "Entourage" and will appear in "Elektra Luxx" and "13" later this year. Also in the works is the Renny Harlin-directed "Georgia" and a voice part in the big screen CGI adaptation of "Gatchaman."
On the future of her career:
"I'd really like to sink my teeth into a project and really move people with something juicy and excellent and challenging. That's what I want."
On her body:
"Some women want bigger breasts. But [I wish] I could have had a dancer's body. I sometimes wear plunging necklines because they make me feel smaller."
