Emily Schooley is an actor… and improviser/writer/photographer/performer/activist/Girl Friday with too many passions and the unfortunate need to sleep occasionally. She works extensively in both film and live performances and has thrived in the arts scene since moving to Toronto just over two years ago.
With notable roles in several independent horror films - including playing the lead role of Ivette in the upcoming feature “One Week in Windchocombe” – Emily has earned a reputation as a scream queen, though she is just as comfortable playing for laughs. She performs live weekly at Clintons with the Impatient Theatre Company and her own improv group, Pandora’s Toybox, performs around Toronto using readings from Emily’s teenage diary to inspire scenes.
Other favourite roles include the Lady in Red in “The Park Enforcer”, Pimp in “Black Eve”, a brief cameo as a Hot Football Fan in ”The Dark Knight Rises”, and featured appearances in several other webseries including “Clutch”, “The Dark Show”, and the upcoming “Season of the Plague”. Emily is also thrilled to be a part of Zed.TO, a participatory theatre experience encompassing Fringe, Nuit Blanche, and several other events through the summer/fall of 2012.

Gloria Adora – Little Girl
About Gloria Adora
I was born February, 2003.
Both my parents were born in Canada and are of Italian descent.
I am in grade three, enrolled in a French Immersion program; I also take Italian lessons as well.
I love Music, I love to Act and I love to Dance… Is that MAD or what…
What can be said about music other than the world wouldn’t be the same or maybe not even turn if there wasn’t music!!! I love music and going to concerts and I love to play the piano. I am currently taking lessons and when I become really good at the piano I want to learn the violin then the guitar and then the trumpet; of course that’s not all but is a starting list to aim for. I was also in the Mississauga Children’s Choir and sang our beloved National Anthem at the Hershey Centre before an OHL St. Mike’s Majors hockey game.
As for acting, well… my daddy always tells me that I’m such a character. You can actually catch my acting debut in a Short Film called “For Emma Taylor”, I play Emma Taylor. I have also worked on another Short Film titled “Understanding Mia”, playing Lead Role of Mia, please refer to my resume for links to these films as well as other films I have worked on. I am also enrolled in a couple of acting workshops and I like to apply for different roles that allow me to hone my skills as an actor. I of course love movies whether it is going to the theatre or watching them at home with family and friends and a bucket of popcorn.
For dance, I dance competitively in jazz, tap, hi-hop, acro and lyrical all of which requires a lot of emotions and physical capabilities, oh do I love the stage!!! I also do ballet which I love the most! I can’t even begin to tell you how my dance teachers are the best in the whole wide world!
I also love to colour, draw, paint, do arts and crafts, put on puppet shows and play dress-up too. I love to ride my bike and foot scooter, I am also a great swimmer and skater, I love to skip and play hop-scotch and I love to play board games as well and I love horses, dolphins and beluga whales. Oh yeah, I love to laugh and make people laugh.
Dear to My Heart
Last but not least and probably the most important thing to me; and that’s giving back! I am a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society and I have completed my fifth year; I also take part in our local Terry Fox run and also help whenever I can at a senior’s residence. There is so much more I would love to do in helping others that are in need.

Scott’s acting debut in 2010 was as an American Civil War colour-bearer in the zombie genre film “Exit Humanity”. Since that time he has been involved in more than 15 historical and contemporary movie/TV projects. Scott’s favorite appearance was on the second season of the Ron James Show in the skit “War of Wars”; a spoof about military re-enactors versus LARPers. In addition to acting, Scott’s passion is playing AA hockey, military re-enacting, and girls!
