Emily Irene VanCamp (born May 12, 1986) is a Canadian actress born in Port Perry, Ontario. She is best known for her roles as Amy Abbott on the WB series Everwood, which ran from 2002 to 2006, and more recently for her role as Rebecca Harper in the ABC series Brothers & Sisters since 2007. In 2011, she will star in the ABC drama Revenge.
The role for which VanCamp is perhaps best known is her character Amy Abbott in the WB Television Network's drama Everwood.
In 2007, VanCamp joined the cast of Touchstone Television’s large ensemble series Brothers & Sisters as a regular late in the season, a move that marks her second teaming with Executive Producer Greg Berlanti (they were previously paired on Everwood). VanCamp's character was introduced as Rebecca Harper, the daughter of the late William Walker (Tom Skerritt) and his secret mistress, Holly Harper (Patricia Wettig), though it is later discovered that this is incorrect through a DNA test done in 2008. It was announced that she is leaving the show, and will appear in three episodes of the fifth season to wrap up her character's storyline. She starred in a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, titled Beyond the Blackboard, with her former Everwood co-star, Treat Williams, which aired on CBS, April 24, 2011.
In 2011, she was cast as the lead in ABC's drama pilot Revenge. It was given a series order in May.
