Canadian actress Emily Perkins got her start in television at the age of 12, with a series of supporting roles in TV movies, most notably playing the younger version of lead character Beverly Marsh in the miniseries adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel "It. " In 1990, she gained her first regular series role in the Canadian family comedy "Mom P.I.," but the series only lasted a single season. Alongside a continuing series of TV guest appearances, Perkins made her film debut in a key role of the juvenile delinquency drama "Past Perfect." Her first starring role came in the werewolf-themed teen horror flick "Ginger Snaps," which she repeated in the film's two sequels as well. Along with small roles in Hollywood films including the Christina Ricci-starring mental illness drama "Prozac Nation," the Arctic murder mystery "Insomnia," the science fiction thriller "Repeaters" and the enormous comedy hit "Juno," Perkins remains a steady presence on Canadian television. For four years, she co-starred on the procedural crime drama "Da Vinci's Inquest." In 2010, she began her highest profile role, co-starring as flighty secretary Crystal Braywood on "Hiccups," a sitcom co-starring and created by actor and writer Brent Butt, best known for his cult comedy series "Corner Gas."
