Personal Quotes:

  • "The spotlight does put pressure on certain aspects of my life. I've given up looking for a boyfriend. That's not to say I won't be intersted if the right guy comes along. But I'm not in a hurry."

  • "The people on Everwood are unbelievably talented and down to earth. And to top it off, people seem to really like the show. I wake up every day stunned that I get to do this for a living."

  • "You put the picture of the ideal person in your head and then someone comes along and they don't fit that ideal at all. But somehow there is something about them that is so attractive. Everyone that I have fallen for has not fit that ideal at all."

  • "I don't dig parties. I rather sit at home with my friends and a good movie. Movie night with my girlfriends are the best I know."

  • "I'm in a driving school now and will get the licence in May. My mom is already planning of buying an extra safe car so that I wouldn't get into an accident."

  • "Really good movies come from Spain and it is my dream to get a role from one of those."

  • "I've been dancing my entire life. Jazz, hip hop, ballet. And then there's tap dancing. I love to tap. My ultimate dream is to do a musical like 'Singin' in the Rain.'"

  • "At a party, I am the kind of girl who will wait until the end of the night before I really get going. I'm a little anti-social at first, but I'm not immune to dancing on tables either."

  • "My idea of a perfect pet is a really, really big dog! Huge! Unfortunately, I can't have pets right now. There's just not enough time with my schedule. For a while there I thought about getting a cat, but even that seems unfair."

  • "If I could meet anybody in the whole world, dead or alive, it would be Audrey Hepburn. She is my idol. I've been watching her movies since I was a little kid".

About the character: Emily Thorne

Net Worth: How much is unclear, only Emily Thorne knows…
Occupation: Devotes her time to various charities and philanthropic endeavors.
Desire: To gain access into Grayson Global in order to find proof of her father’s innocence and get revenge on every person responsible for his downfall, especially the Graysons.

Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is the newest arrival in the Hamptons this summer. By all appearances, she’s a friendly and sophisticated “girl next door,” whose disarming charm and generosity allows her seamless access to the restricted circles of Hamptons high society. But the affluent, exclusive world she’s immersed herself in is tied to a dark family history and Emily Thorne is anything but what she seems. As a nine year old girl, Emily’s father was framed for a horrific crime by the friends and coworkers he trusted and sentenced to a life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss, and betrayal. Now 17 years later, Emily has returned under an assumed identity with one endgame—REVENGE, every social overture a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies, until their lives come crashing down around them. Emily’s goal is unwavering and her sharp mind is always five steps ahead, but when her past begins to catch up, her true heart may get caught in the crossfire.
