EMILY BLUNT (Ruthie Draper) shot to international prominence with her lead role in the multi-award-winning British movie "My Summer of Love,” from Pawel Pawlikowski. Harper's Bazaar called Emily's performance "the most impressive film debut I've seen since Kate Winslet in ‘Heavenly Creatures.'” Emily won the Most Promising Newcomer award at the 2004 Evening Standard Film Awards and was nominated in the Best Newcomer category at the 2004 British Independent Film Awards; and the film won the Best British Film award at the 2005 BAFTAs.

The critically acclaimed "Gideon's Daughter,” in which Emily starred alongside Bill Nighy and Miranda Richardson, was directed by Stephen Poliakoff, and the film was broadcast on BBC One and BBC America in 2006. Emily won a Golden Globe® for Best Supporting Actress in Television at the 2007 awards for her performance.

Next for Emily was the hugely popular "The Devil Wears Prada,” an adaptation of the bestselling Lauren Weisberger novel. David Frankel directs an all-star cast, including Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci. The film opened to great acclaim in the U.S. in June 2006 and exceeded all expectations, making over $125 million at the U.S. box office.

The critics shared the audience's love for "The Devil Wears Prada” and for Emily—The New York Times described her as a "tour de force of smiling hostility,” the Los Angeles Times called her "scene-stealing,” the Washington Post wrote that she "delivers a comic gem” and New York Magazine reported that "the brilliant British actress Emily Blunt is a marvel at conveying the terror beneath the hauteur.” British critics were no less enthusiastic; The Observer called her "splendid,” and The Telegraph praised her performance as "terrific” and "a catty delight.” The Daily Mail wrote, "It would be unjust if Emily Blunt's supporting performance…didn't win awards. This is a terrific young actress who would grace any production.” Emily was nominated in the Breakthrough Female category at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards for her performance and was honored with the Breakthrough Award at the 2006 Movieline Young Hollywood Awards. She was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category at the Golden Globes® and the BAFTAs for the role. E

Emily moved from New York to Canada in late 2005 to begin work on her lead role in "Wind Chill,” produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh and directed by Greg Jacobs. The film was released in the U.S. in April 2007 with The Hollywood Reporter describing her as "red-hot” and the New York Post stating "rising star Blunt does a great job.” The New York Times declared, "This is Blunt's movie. The actress has a winning way with melting hauteur…expect her to carry much bigger movies before long.”

In August 2006, Emily started work on "The Great Buck Howard.” Written and directed by Sean McGinly and co-starring Tom Hanks, John Malkovich and Colin Hanks, Emily plays Valerie, a self-assured publicist hired by a luckless magician trying to reinvigorate his career. Following this, Emily filmed "DAN IN REAL LIFE,” with Steve Carell, Juliette Binoche and Dane Cook.

Emily went on to make "The Jane Austen Book Club.” She will star alongside Maria Bello, Frances McDormand, Kevin Zegers and Hugh Dancy as a secretive, unhappy teacher who yearns for more than life has given her. The film is released in the U.S. on September 21, 2007. Emily started shooting "Sunshine Cleaning” alongside Amy Adams and Alan Arkin in February 2007. She will also be seen in Mike Nichols' "Charlie Wilson's War” with Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Emily's next project will be the Martin Scorsese-produced biopic "The Young Victoria.” Emily plays Britain's Queen Victoria in the early stages of her life, and the film will be written by Julian Fellowes and directed by J
