With a prolific acting career along with her singing career, Emmy Rossum has become a a very hot commodity, and her revealing nude scenes on "Shameless" have made her an internet sensation. With a natural talent for acting and looks so sweet she could sell Girl Scout cookies, Emmy is a rising star with plenty of similarities to Liv Tyler. Born and raised in New York, Emmy displayed a musical talent at a young age when she joined the Metropolitan Opera's Children's Choir, performing with the likes of such musical talents as Placido Domingo and Pavarotti. Curious about a career in TV, Emmy made her television debut on the daytime soap opera "As the World Turns," garnering plenty of attention and quickly attaining roles on the made-for-TV movie "Genius" and the ABC original movie "The Audrey Hepburn Story," receiving critical praise for both.
After guest-starring on several other shows including "Snoops" and "Law & Order," Emmy's most important appearance came as a young client on the hit drama "The Practice." Her role on "The Practice" began a snowball of offers that continued to grow with every year. Emmy finally broke into film in 2000 in a number of small independent features before snatching a part as the daughter of Sean Penn in the highly praised 2003 drama "Mystic River." She continued with a starring roles in "Poseidon" and "Phantom of the Opera." With a solid belief from film critics that she's bound for stardom and a growing filmography of award-winning indies and big-budget productions, Emmy's success will rest on her own talents when she sets out to prove everyone right. With a name just begging for a TV award, that shouldn't be a problem.
