Jacqueline “Jackie” Emerson is an actress (The Hunger Games), recording artist, TEDx Speaker, voice-over artist, former ambassador for the China Institute, and the former host/producer of the She’s So Boss movement—a multimedia brand that helps girls to discover their own inner boss. She has performed with the LA Opera, Reprise LA, and other professional theater companies, as well as with the Stanford Improvisers and the Stanford Shakespeare Company.
Jackie was profiled in OWN's digital series, “Who Am I,” and was named as one of Business Insider’s “15 Incredible Students Attending Stanford University.” In addition, she recently won first place in a musical theater writing competition, and spent a month-long residency in NYC developing the show. She was also just commissioned to write the music for a children’s show about a gender-queer princess: Princess Ten Ten.
Jackie is focused on all aspects of filmmaking, both in front of and behind the camera. Currently, she is producing four feature films and one television series, all focused on diversity and gender equality. She is set to star in, assist the director, produce, and compose music for a live action Alice in Wonderland, filming summer 2018 in Belgium/Berlin (working title: GET LOST).
She is currently repped by ICM, DPN (voiceovers) and Schumacher Management. You can see her perform with The Music Store - a new musical improv troupe where the members accompany themselves.
