2. Rebellious Teen

Emilly was quite a rebel in her youth. She said, “I definitely went through some dark teenage years. I wore black raccoon eyeliner every day. I would be late for school if I didn’t have time to put on my eyeliner,” she said.

3. Love for ‘I Love Lucy’

Growing up, and like most young girls her age, Emily Meade had a fondness for the television series I Love You. She revealed that it was her love for the show that spurred her interest in acting.

4. Emily Meade can sing

Besides acting, she can also sing. In fact, she started singing at a young age and even won a prize in 1997 when she took part in the Zecchino d’Oro, an Italian singing competition. She sang the song Up, Over Through, and Under, with which she won the Zecchino d’Argento prize. Since this spectacular and prize-winning performance, she has not actively participated in singing. However, it is good to know that she is not only a talented actress but also a good singer.

6. The Duece

Contrary to what many people think, The Duece was not their first television series, as you can see from the chart we presented above. Before the series, she had many short roles in several other series, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Fringe, Broadwalk Empire, and Broad City. However, The Duece was her biggest and most recent television series, which is why many people who didn’t know her before now think that she is just starting with television series. Her first television series was made in 2008.

7. Anti-Social Media

Before she starred in the film Nerve, Emily was somewhat averse to social media. She said, “Before the movie, I didn’t even have an Instagram,” she told us. “I was like a totally anti-internet pagan. Everyone would try to explain to me why it’s an important piece [of the industry]. I thought, “No, no, no. I’ll do it the old-fashioned way. I refuse.'”

But right now it has a huge fan base and a huge following in social media.
