Tropes associated with the actress include:
- Ability over Appearance: Belle in the Disney film is French but speaks with an American accent. Producers let Emilie use her natural voice rather than be a Fake American.
- Actor Allusion: In Remember Me, the cops say that it's 8.15 in one scene - the same number as the flight in Lost.
- The Danza: As Emily in Brick.
- Dawson Casting: She was subject to this in a lot of her early roles.
- Dyeing for Your Art: For Belle's Season 1 appearances, she just wore a wig. When she was upgraded to series regular, she dyed her hair brown. She reverted to her natural blonde after Season 5 and wore a wig again for Season 6.
- Fake American: She can do a flawless American accent. To the degree that a few viewers in the initial episodes of Lost accused her Australian accent of sounding fake. No longer so from 2018 onward as she has acquired American citizenship.
- Hide Your Pregnancy: Belle became pregnant during Season 5 because Emilie was in real life. In flashbacks to when Belle isn't pregnant, there's a lot of shots from the chest up to hide it.
- Irony as She Is Cast: Claire in Lost loves peanut butter. Emilie herself is allergic to it.
- Playing Against Type:
- Scully Box: For Remember Me, Emilie had to make up for the huge height difference between her and Robert Pattinson. The difference is nearly a whole foot to be exact.
- Those Two Actors: With Rebecca Mader in Lost and Once Upon a Time.
