Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Though virtually unknown to U.S. audiences during the first part of her career, British actress Emily Blunt managed to steal virtually every scene from the likes of Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci in her American breakthrough, "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006). Blunt's over-the-top performance as Streep's high-strung assistant catapulted her into the international spotlight, steering her career away from prior British period television pieces and towards memorable supporting roles in "The Jane Austen Book Club" (2007) and the Steve Carell comedy, "Dan in Real Life" (2007). The breadth of her versatility coupled with her love of unusual, unhinged characters was solidified with starring roles in as varied projects as "Sunshine Cleaning" (2009), "Young Victoria" (2009), "The Wolfman" (2010) and "The Adjustment Bureau" (2011). Adding to her share of the spotlight, Blunt married "The Office" star John Krasinski in 2010, while maintaining a busy schedule in films like "Your Sister's Sister" (2012) and "Looper" (2012). Thanks to her fearless ability to tackle both comedy and drama with poise and ease, Blunt easily became one of the better talents to have crossed the pond in quite some time. ...
