Emmy Rossum’s Bio (Age, Ethnicity)
Emmanuelle Grey Rossum’s birth on September 12, 1986, never happened like it would when a family is complete. Her father left her mom while she was pregnant – few months before their daughter was born – and ever since he left, Emmy has only met him twice. Growing up, she was raised as a Jew because her mom was Jewish, although, records have it that her father is a Protestant. In respect to this, Emmy claims ancestry from both the Russian-Jewish ancestry and the English-Dutch ancestry, nevertheless, she is an American citizen.
She attended Spence School but dropped out in order to pursue her career. Prior to that, she had excelled as a singer as she started performing on stage just at the age of five. Nevertheless, she later continued her studies online and graduated with a diploma. Emmy managed to grow her career alongside taking History, French and Philosophy classes at the Columbia University.
As a singer, her unique selling point was her ability to sing in different languages which had a spellbinding effect on her audience. As the days rolled by, she was quite satisfied with her passion for singing but she knew deep down within her that it was not all, so she decided to tread the path of an actress which prompted her to take lessons at the Flo Salant Greenberg.
