Early Life and Education
Emma grew up in Seattle and attended Washington Middle School, and from a young age aspired to become an actress and a model.
She later attended James A. Garfield High School, which is one of the more popular high school destinations for students in her area. She later attended the Orange County High School of the Arts in Santa Ana, California where she became a part of the Music and Theatre Conservatory. However, she discontinued a traditional classroom setting for home-schooling, so that she could focus on her pursuit of a career in entertainment.
During this time she was training in ballet, studying at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School, Spectrum Dance Theatre School, American Ballet Theatre, Joffery Balley School, and Cornish College of the Arts, the latter known for its specialization in the arts. She traveled around the world to hone her skills, and was also active in community theatre, mostly performing in her hometown of Seattle. She displayed high intelligence and even competed during the FIRST Robotics Competition of 2013, a member of the FIRST Tech Challenge, and was a finalist during the Los Angeles Regional Competition.
Dumont found acting work early on, when she was cast in the film “True Adolescents” marking her film debut. The film starred Mark Duplass and Bret Loehr, and was aired at the South by Southwest Film Festival. The following year, she continued working on films, including “Dear Lemon Lima”, a comedy based on the short film of the same name, telling the story of a girl who experiences her first heartbreak in Alaska. She took these roles early on, as they were filmed in and around her hometown.

In 2010, she participated in a model search contest held by “V” magazine, which is a fashion publication that has been in existence since 1999. She won the contest, and as a result got a contract with Ford Models. She’s since modeled around the world in locations such as China, Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. After working on the pilot for the NBC show “Metro”, she was then cast in her first notable television project called “Bunheads”, in which she appeared alongside Sutton Foster and Kelly Bishop playing the character Melanie Segal, who is a dance student at an academy.
Emma appeared in “Bunheads” for a year before moving on to other projects. She worked on the independent film “Nobody Walks”, alongside the likes of John Krasinski, Dylan McDermott and Jane Levy. In 2014, she was in the pilot for the television show “Aquarius”, which would later be picked up and run for two seasons from 2015 to 2017, and won a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series during its first year. However, it was canceled after NBC decided not to renew the series.
Her next big project would come in 2017 when she was cast in “The Gifted” based on the Marvel franchise X-Men. The show is set in an alternate timeline where the X-Men have disappeared, and the survivors have to make it out on their own. It received mostly positive reviews during its run but was canceled after two seasons. Emma played the character Polaris, both a superhero and villain in the comics, the biological daughter of mutant Magneto, sharing similar powers to him.
It is known that Dumont is single, but she hasn’t been vocal about any information regarding her romantic pursuits. She is a member of Mensa which is the oldest high IQ society in the world. She has expressed her desire to study both programming and mechanical engineering, while she continues to work on her acting endeavors. She is also an avid roller derby skater, and has trained in that form of skating.
She resides in Los Angeles, where she owns a dog named Zoe. She is very fashion conscious, and wears clothes or her hair differently depending on the occasion.
