Emma Factor is a New York City based actress, with experience working as a dancer, dance captain, and choreographer. She is a graduate of University of North Carolina's high school and college program, receiving a BFA in acting.

Most recently, you can see Emma in her recurring role as Lucinda on CBS' Madam Secretary, where she was given the opportunity to work with directors Morgan Freeman and Phil Bertelsen. Check out the News tab to see what else she's been up to! 

During her training at UNC School of the Arts, Emma was cast as Holga in Arthur Miller's After the Fall directed by Carl Forsman; played Edith Potter in The Women Directed by the wonderful Giovanna Sardelli; got the chance to work with Jesse Berger as Lady Townley in Man of Mode; and finished the year playing Connie in Bob Glaudini's Jack Goes Boating. 

Born in El Paso, Texas and raised Wilkesboro, North Carolina, Emma began her life in the performing arts with her first ballet class at the age of three. Her passion for dance led her to spending summers at The Rock School for Dance Education studying ballet, and later attending UNC School of the Arts summer program, where she stayed year round in 2012 as a ballet major. It was there, in an acting class as a ballet major, that she discovered her deep love for acting, truth, and story-telling, and went on to accept a spot in the high school drama program at UNCSA. From there, she accepted a spot in the conservatory training program, where she graduated from last year. She is having a blast getting to know New York, and is thrilled to continue to work and learn as an artist as she pursues her professional career in acting.
