Sign up to hear from me about my upcoming short film Home Again, and more.




Emily Siobhan McCourt is a Canadian-born actress and musician known for her love of drama and affinity for comedy. 

She discovered her passion for screen acting in 2013 when she was cast in the first film role she ever auditioned for. 

After graduating with distinction from theatre school in Alberta, she performed both as an actor and as an accomplished fiddle player across Canada. 

She hails from Edmonton, AB, but has dual citizenship with her homeland, Ireland. 

She currently resides in Toronto, Canada, where she is represented by Fountainhead Talent, trains with Armstrong Acting Studios, and is pursuing her dream!


I'm a frequent busker, soloist, and group performer, both vocally and with the fiddle.
