The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Reality Tv - BY JAY BOB­BIN

Emily Irene VanCamp was born on May 12, 1986, in Port Perry, Ont. One of four sis­ters, she be­gan her ca­reer in en­ter­tain­ment very young – al­ready danc­ing at age 3 – and got her par­ents to let her at­tend a Mon­treal dance train­ing pro­gram when she was 11. The next year, she was ad­mit­ted to the train­ing pro­gram of Les Grands Bal­lets Cana­di­ens.

Developing an in­ter­est in act­ing, VanCamp started tak­ing classes, got her­self an agent and did a num­ber of com­mer­cials ... then ap­peared, word­lessly, in an episode of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” Af­ter that, she con­tin­ued to build her re­sume by play­ing a young Jac­que­line Bou­vier in a TV-movie and guest-starring on the se­ries “All Souls.”

VanCamp’s first se­ries as a reg­u­lar was the hor­ror-sus­pense show “Glory Days,” in which her work caught the eye of pro­ducer Greg Ber­lanti, who then gave her the role of Amy Ab­bott in “Ever­wood.” Dur­ing that drama’s four-sea­son run, she also ap­peared in sev­eral movies in­clud­ing “The Ring Two” (and its re­lated short-sub­ject pro­logue, “Rings”).

The se­ries “Broth­ers & Sis­ters” wel­comed VanCamp to its cast mid­way through its first sea­son. While work­ing on that show, she made the in­de­pen­dent film “Nor­man,” earn­ing a cou­ple of fes­ti­val awards for it. She also co-starred in a tele­vi­sion adap­ta­tion of “Ben Hur.”

VanCamp landed her first role as a se­ries lead by starring in “Re­venge.” She also en­tered the Marvel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse as Sharon Carter in “Cap­tain Amer­ica: The Win­ter Sol­dier,” and she re­turned to the part later in “Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War.” She served as host of a 2014 ABC special celebratin­g Marvel’s 75th an­niver­sary.

Cur­rently, VanCamp is a star of the Fox med­i­cal drama “The Res­i­dent,” which soon will launch its third sea­son. She plays med­i­cal prac­ti­tioner Nic Nevin, who has a com­pli­cated his­tory with doc­tor Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) and ma­jor health is­sues within her own fam­ily.

VanCamp’s per­sonal life is a legacy of sorts of her work on “Re­venge,” since af­ter dat­ing co-star Josh Bow­man for seven years, she mar­ried him in the Ba­hamas last De­cem­ber.
