Yorkshire-born, pint-sized Emma Baim has enjoyed a varied career as an actor, writer, director, and creative practitioner. She has been writing and directing plays, monologues, and short films for over a decade. After studying in LA on a year-long acting programme, Emma co-founded a community theatre group in Yorkshire where she wrote and directed five plays. She helped edit Stephen Berkoff’s food memoir My Life in Food and she has written, co-produced and directed short films for Holocaust Memorial Day.
Being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease aged three (around the same time she fell in love with performing) gave Emma a drive to be superhuman. She is registered disabled, but the illness does not define her – rather, it has shaped how she sees the world and put determination at the forefront of everything she undertakes.
Emma is currently developing a high-concept TV series for a teenage audience with That’s a Wrap Studios, and a personal, humorous, poignant and ultimately triumphant stage play coming from her experience with Crohn’s
disease. Her full acting CV can be found here on Spotlight.
Emma is fully represented by Xavicus Media, she is available for acting, voice work, screen and stage writing, directing and producing.
