Emmi Shockley is an actor and filmmaker originally from Ocean City, Maryland. She holds a BFA in Film and Television Production from NYU Tisch School of the Arts as well as a certificate in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
She entered the independent film world during her teenage years when she was cast in Michael Tully’s 2014 Sundance feature, Ping Pong Summer. She starred alongside Susan Sarandon, Lea Thompson, and John Hannah, and attracted attention for her role as Stacy Summers, the off-beat, Slurpee-drinking love interest of the film’s protagonist, Rad Miracle (Marcello Conte). After starring in this film and traveling through the festival circuit, Emmi was inspired to begin writing and directing her own work. During her time at NYU, she wrote, directed, and starred in her two most recent short films Don’t Be a Baby and J-1.
Emmi continues to live and work in New York City. She is managed by Emma Lewis of Untitled Entertainment.
