Drum roll please! And the winner is . . . .
It's impossible to flip through the Nashville Scene without noticing the depth behind these eyes. Emily Landham, a working on camera and theatre actress was presented with the BEST ACTRESS by Martin Brady in the Scene's "Best of Nashville 2012" issue. What did Martin have to say about Emily's year thus far?
BEST ACTRESS: EMILY LANDHAM
Landham recently fractured her leg rehearsing Shakespeare. If that doesn't attest to her all-out approach to her craft, then her performances in three major shows in the past year certainly do. Her brilliant Juliet in the 2011 Shakespeare in the Park production of Romeo and Juliet was followed by a classy turn in Tennessee Rep's major effort with Arthur Miller's All My Sons. Then Landham starred in Studio Tenn's acclaimed 2012 revival of The Miracle Worker as Annie Sullivan, a role that's as strenuous as they come. (Fortunately, Emily was working with two good legs at the time.) We hear she's on the mend, positive news for Nashville theatergoers. (But so much for "break a leg.") —MARTIN BRADY
Emily may have been slowed a tad over the summer due to her big break, but in the past few weeks, she has been busy reading for multiple movies, episodics, and commercials continuing to pursue her on camera endeavors. She is also launching a non profit locally, so watch for more to come on how you can be a part of giving back! Emily's well rounded business approach in building her craft, her community, and the lives of others is worth watching and following for any aspiring actresses / actors.
