Biography by Jason Buchanan

A raven-haired Canadian actress with a curiously mysterious history and a friendly smile, Emmanuelle Chriqui has been working frequently in television since 1995. With roles in Steven Spielberg's A.I. and alongside 'N Sync singer Lance Bass in On the Line (both 2001), the fresh-faced actress gained increased exposure and notable momentum in her cinematic career.

Born in Montréal, Québec, Canada, in 1977, Chriqui began acting in commercials at the age of ten, later graduating to feature films with roles in Detroit Rock City (1999) and Snow Day (2000). Also turning up frequently in bit roles on television, Chriqui has shown increasing promise in a variety of diverse roles and projects. She appeared in the 2003 thriller Wrong Turn, and in 2005, she began a recurring role on the smash hit HBO series Entourage as Sloan. She'd stay with the series until 2007, while also appearing in films like In the Mix and After Sex. In 2008, she joined Josh Hartnett for the Wall Street drama August, and joined the cast of the Adam Sandler comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan. In 2009 she starred in Taking Chances and Patriotville, and two years later she appeared in prominent roles in both 13 and 5 Days of War.
