Her first starring role was on the fantasy drama, "BeastMaster" (1999). When her agent told her of a role in the US, as newcomer Tess in the hit series "Roswell" (1999), she flew out and auditioned. After landing the role, she was written out of "BeastMaster" (1999) and started work as "Tess", an alien. She relocated to California and was on "Roswell" (1999) before she even owned an apartment.
After 2 years on the show, she then made notable guest appearances in "CSI: Miami" (2002) and "The Handler" (2003).
She stayed in TV, playing the bad girl Chris in Carrie (2002) (TV), a movie made for TV. She also changed genres, starring in Santa's Slay (2005), a black comedy.
Emilie has shown her versatility by branching out into film, making her debut at Sundance 2005 with the the award-winning indie film Brick (2005). She starred in the remake The Hills Have Eyes (2006) in 2006, which debuted at No.1 in the UK box office.
She was on the Emmy-award winning ABC series "Lost" (2004), playing "Claire", a young Australian who gave birth on the mysterious island and has a close relationship with "Charlie", played by Dominic Monaghan.
Emilie lives in California with her dogs, Bella and Mabel. In 2007 she separated from husband Josh Janowicz but Emilie confirmed on the 28 April 2008 episode of the Opie and Anthony Show on XM Radio that she is still, in fact, happily married.
