Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Emily Hart was born in Sayville, New York, the daughter of television producer Paula Hart and William Hart, a businessman. She has six sisters (three of whom are half-sisters) and one brother. Her stepfather (since 1994) is television executive Leslie Gilliams.[4]

Her older siblings Melissa, Trisha Hart, Elizabeth Hart and Brian Hart have all been in show business to varying degrees, as have younger half-sisters Alexandra Gilliams and Samantha Gilliams. Half-sister Mackenzie Hart is not in show business.[4]

Career[edit]

Emily Hart started acting influenced by her older sister Melissa.[5]

In 1998, she won a Young Artist Award for her role in the television movie The Right Connections. She was also nominated that year for a guest appearance on the series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, which her sister Melissa Joan Hart starred in.[1] A later episode of that series, entitled "Witchright Hall", served as a pilot for a possible spin-off series starring Hart as Sabrina's younger cousin Amanda, but the show was not picked up by the WB.

In 1999, Hart was cast in the title role of Sabrina: The Animated Series,[6] for which she was nominated for Young Artist Awards in 2000 and 2001, winning the second of the two.[2][7] Also in 2001, Hart starred as the teen-aged Shirley Temple in the TV movie Child Star: The Shirley Temple Story.

In 2003, she won another Young Artist Award for a guest appearance on the series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.[3]

In 2005, Hart starred in a 15 minute short film entitled Mute, directed by her older sister Melissa.[8] Hart played York in the 2009/2010 horror thriller film Nine Dead, which also featured her older sister Melissa.
