Biography

Having starred in a number of operas and blockbuster films - all by the age of 18 - singer and actress Emmy Rossum emerged as a notable young talent capable of delivering quality performances on both the stage and the screen. Rossum's Hollywood career began by originating the role of Abigail Williams on the long-running daytime soap opera "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010) before making her film debut in "It Had to be You" (2000). Her breakthrough role came with the independently made drama "Songcatcher" (2000), which helped open the doors to a leading performance in the romantic comedy "Nola" (2003). She next portrayed the doomed daughter of a blue collar father in "Mystic River" (2003), before putting her lungs to the test as the young soprano Christine Daaé in director Joel Schumacher's much-hyped adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004). Following a supporting role in the underwhelming disaster movie remake "Poseidon" (2006) and her failed pop album, Inside Out (2007), Rossum returned to prominence with a well-received role as the overwhelmed daughter of a genial alcoholic in the critically lauded series "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011- ), which recalled the promise she displayed earlier in her young career.
