Emily Rose, born February 2, 1981 in Renton, Washington, is an American actress. Perhaps best known for her work on the television series ER and Haven, she has rose to prominence in the voice-acting world by voicing journalist Elena Fisher in the Uncharted series.


[edit] Biography

Emily Rose was born February 2, 1981 in Renton, Washington. In preparation for a career in acting, she graduated from UCLA with an M.F.A degree in Acting, and also studied a Theatre Arts degree at Vanguard University of Southern California.[1]

[edit] Career

In her early career, Rose earned recurring roles on the television series John from Cincinnati and Brothers & Sisters. Following this, she would go on to capture a role in the drama Jericho, before moving onto her perhaps best-known television ventures with roles on E.R. and Haven.[2]

[edit] Uncharted work

When Rose was brought in to work on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, it was initially not as voice talent. Instead, Rose's role was to keep track of the script whilst on the sound stage. However, Rose's interaction with Nolan in this role was so organic that it was felt Rose was perfect for the part of journalist Elena Fisher.[3] Furthermore, when Rose was later called in to read for the part Elena, her audition teamed her up with Nolan North, who would eventually go on to voice the main character of the Uncharted series, Nathan "Nate" Drake. As the two had already worked together in this audition, there was substantial chemistry between them when production eventually began, making the recording easier.[4]

Rose would be called back to reprise her role as Elena in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. One notable difference within Elena's character was how she developed between the two games, and this was something Rose discussed when she said she was pleased at how Elena had seemingly matured.[5]

In December, 2010, Rose posted a message on social networking website Twitter implying that she would be returning to voice Elena in the third instalment of the Uncharted series, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.[6] Elena's role in the game would later be confirmed in the official Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception released at the 2011 E3 Conference.[7]

Between Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Rose would also voice Elena in a small cameo at the end of Uncharted: Eye of Indra, a motion comic set shortly before Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Rose has received significant praise for her portrayal of Elena. Some critics have even suggested that Rose is as well-cast in her role as Nolan North is in his role as Nate.[8] Furthermore, the voice acting behind the love triangle between Elena, Nate and Chloe Frazer in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has been praised, with reviews declaring it as one of the most convincing romances of the genre.[9]
