Emmet was born in the South East of Ireland. He studied to become an auctioneer and worked as an auctioneer for over 4 years. However, he decided to leave the job and move to London to pursue his love for acting. Back now in Dublin, every day for him is exciting and new and the challenges, while sometimes being enormous, are very gratifying. He considers himself to have been fortunate to work with some amazing actors and directors so far in his career and is looking forward to collaborating with many other talented actors, directors, writers and crews in the future.
