Selected Filmography


  • All The Right Wrongs [EP] (2009)
  • Fight or Flight (2010)

Tropes she exhibits

  • Adorkable: As Lilly Truscott.
  • Alpha Bitch: The antagonist in "I Hate The Homecoming Queen".
  • California: At least for a Disney Channel alumnus, she holds the distinct difference of being a native Californian still residing in the state, she is very proud and open of the fact, and many of her social media accounts betray this, from her slang to her humor to her documented travels and activities.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Can be this way, along with Self-Deprecation, especially on Twitter at times, with a unique brand of dry humor. Also fulfills the Snarker role on Hannah Montana.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Listen to the early, innocuous teen pop of "I Don't Think About It" or "Hero In Me" and compare it with the likes of "Marisol", "Drift" or her Fight Or Flight album.
  • Follow Your Heart: Marisol.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Lovesick...just...Lovesick. Listen close to the lyrics...
    • "Let's Be Friends" (" we can make out"), too, though it plays as tongue-in-cheek.
  • Girlish Pigtails / Helicopter Hair: As Gerti Giggles.
  • Gratuitous Panning: Double Talk.
    • The ambient electric piano in "Drift" pans from speaker to speaker.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With fellow Young and Hungry star Mallory Jansen.
  • Identical Stranger: Much humor has been made by her fans, and herself, on social media of her resemblance to Carrie Underwood (who was born exactly nine years earlier).
  • Line-of-Sight Name: "Marisol", named after a street sign Emily read while on a walk.
  • Meganekko: She isn't known for wearing glasses, but at least in this photo, she definitely can count as this.
  • New Sound Album: Her EP All The Right Wrongs has a pop-rock sound, while Fight Or Flight has a synth-pop/dubstep/electronica feel.
    • Her Twitter postings seem to hint that her new music might take on a more folksy/acoustic bent, possibly with fiddle parts. Word of God mentions "less techno, more authentic", and she's posed the question of whether she might make an album "showing her Southern roots" (her parents hailed from Alabama).
      • She has taken the folk style to her new college-based band, Ramshackle, performing and producing YouTube videos with a spartan vocals/acoustic guitar/fiddle/percussion lineup.
  • Personal Raincloud: The music video for "You Are The Only One" shows her singing the song to the camera at some kind of indoor party or get-together; as the song is about a roller-coaster relationship, it occasionally rains over Emily's head as a symbol of the relationship's difficult moments, as she is singing under an umbrella.
  • Precision D-Strike: "I Hate The Homecoming Queen" and "Found Out About You" from All The Right Wrongs feature the word "damn".
  • Self-Deprecation: Her Twitter posts often have a self-deprecating sense of humor about her 5'3'' height, "hipster" Indie Rock musical influences and fascinations with pandas and Canada, where she often tours.
  • She's Got Legs: Very much so.
  • Shout-Out: In "1-800 Clap Your Hands":
    It's gonna take more than your seven-nation army
    I'll fight 'cause I know I'm right
    • "Get Yer Yah-Yahs Out" is a slightly differently spelled reference to the Rolling Stones 1970 live album.
  • Word Salad Lyrics: Many of the songs on her Fight Or Flight album have cryptic, poetic lyrics. "Drift" is another good example.
