Emma Leanne Fisher was born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire but grew up in Bedfordshire until her parents divorced aged 13, she then relocated with her mother and sister to North Yorkshire where she lived until she moved to Sheffield aged 19 to study Nursing at Sheffield Hallam University. It was there where she discovered her love of acting at the University's drama Society. In 2012 she moved to London to train at Drama Studio London to pursue a career in acting. She is the daughter of John Fisher, winner of Junior Mr Universe (1980s) and Julie Fisher an accountant who sadly passed away after a short battle with cancer in 2016.

Notable work includes her portrayal of Zoe, the 14 year old teenager at the center of a child grooming ring in 'Child Z' written by BBC award winning Sarah Hehir and performed at the Southwark Playhouse in June 2015. The play received critical acclaim not least of all because of it's harrowing storyline, based on actual events but because of it's cast of only three actors bringing the story to life, with Emma transforming into multiple people within Zoe's world, intensely remaining on stage throughout the full 90 minutes of the play.

Emma has since gone on to win several awards for her performance in WW2 short film 'Edelweiss' which she also co-wrote and produced based on the true stories from her partner's father's war journals.

Emma has also studied the Meisner technique with the legendary Scott Williams, as well as learning how to 'Flacks' with the equally legendary Niki Flacks at the Actors Centre, London.

In April 2018 Emma became a mother to her first child, a boy named Falco Lothar Fisher. She now lives with her long term partner who is also an actor, Sonu Louis in Bedfordshire with their Chihuahua Diego and Siamese cat Elvis and are expecting their second child in April 2021.
