Mini Bio (1)

An award-winning actor best known for his role as Deucalion in Teen Wolf (2011) and his namesake Gideon in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2014), Emery was raised in both England and South Africa. While a student, he was discovered by lauded stage actor Bill Flynn and began performing voice-overs in between his studies.

Although often cast as a villain on screen, Emery gained exposure as one of the core performers on Not Quite Friday Night (1995), an SNL-type sketch comedy show, which profiled his natural ability for characters and accents. He went on to appear in Heel Against the Head, once again alongside veteran Bill Flynn and preeminent South African playwright, Paul Slabolepszy, winning the national Vita Award for Comedy; the local equivalent of the Tony awards. Emery is also a singer: he was a member of South Africa's premiere a-capella group Not The Midnight Mass, and has also released a jazz standards album, Standard Ease.

On screen, Emery has recurred on Daredevil (2015), Shameless (2011), and Last Resort (2012). He also won multiple best actor awards for his portrayal of Richard Pine in the Stephen King short Survivor Type (2012). When not acting on camera, he can be heard bringing life to characters in video games and audio books.

Personal Quotes (2)

At the end of the day, when you're stripped of everything, all you have is how you dealt with people. Everything else is, ultimately, rubbish.
Expect nothing. Anticipate everything.
