We had the good fortune of connecting with Emilie Rimmer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Emilie, how do you think about risk?
I decided to move to Los Angeles from Denmark in 2017. I have always dreamed about being an actress, and started acting when I was 3 years old back home.
When I was 16 I moved to Indiana to be an exchange student for 11 months, to learn the language. And when I turned 16 I got accepted into my dream school ” The American Academy of Dramatic Arts” In Los Angeles, California.
I knew the second I got accepted into the school, that I wanted to go.
But I was only 17 when the school started, and i had to leave my family and friends back in Denmark for the second time.
It was hard having to leave again, but I was so excited to move to Hollywood, and living out my dream at such an early age.
Even though leaving Denmark was a huge risk, I don’t regret doing it at all.
Im now a graduate from one of the best acting schools, I have a lot of new friends in LA and I live with my amazing boyfriend and our puppy. I have an incredible agent and manager, and I’ve gotten to work on different things like short movies, shows, plays, commercials and music videos!
Of course there has been ups and downs on my way to reach my goals. But overall I consider myself very lucky.
My dream has already come true and I just now turned 21.
Taking risks can be absolutely terrifying. But if you believe in yourself, your dreams and are willing to fight for your goals, its totally worth taking it.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Im a 21 year old actress who is working in Hollywood, California and in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The biggest challenge of being an actress is to get started. Im still in the beginning of my career and are still working on getting more jobs, and getting my name out there.
Due to Covid-19 I’ve been back in Denmark for almost a year. It has been impossible to get a new visa, and to book any roles in the US.
Back in Denmark I’ve done several commercials, and photoshoots etc, but here it is also difficult, and we are still in lockdown, so there’s nothing much happening.

Im a very creative person, and in my sparetime I have my own photography business called E R Media Productions, and I go to Nicci Welsh makeup academy in Copenhagen to expand my skills and to work as a makeup artist, on the side of acting.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love many so many places in Los Angeles, it is hard for me to pick my favourite.

But I do love Santa Monica Pier. Its so romantic, a lot of fun, yummy food and its always a fun adventure.
I enjoy watching the sunset with my boyfriend, and eating dinner at Bubba Gump that’s located on the pier. Theres also a small amusement park filled with fun rides, games and snacks.
Santa Monica is always the place I bring my family and friends, when they visit from Denmark.

But I also love places like:

The Grove
Glendale galleria
Universal studies and city walk
Disneyland
griffith observatory
Malibu

And going on hikes to the Hollywood sign! Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to give a huge shoutout to my boyfriend Vincent Blackwell. He’s a personal trainer and actor. He’s super hard working, extremely dedicated to everything he puts his heart into, and he is always there for me and supports me in every decision I make. Without him I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
