Start of Emilie’s Career and Meeting Kyle Cassie

The first step in any prospective actor’s career is getting an agent who will get you through the hassle and into the audition room. This was exactly what she did in 2006, and soon, she was getting roles in hit Canadian series Sanctuary and jPod. After her first audition for Sanctuary, the actress killed an action sequence, and she was hired for the show where she appeared in for two seasons.

Kyle and Emilie met while filming the series, and soon, the two were going out together. They were hesitant to show their love to each other back then and were only seen together a handful of times, but the fact they are still together, shows how much they loved and still love one another.
