The sort of actress who could be complimentarily described as "offbeat," Montreal-born performer Emily Hampshire spent years making an indelible impression on audiences. She frequently essayed prominent supporting turns, and was most prolific in her native Canada. Hampshire began her work on television in the mid-1990s, with guest spots on the R.L. Stine horror-lite anthology series "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (YTV 1990-96), and continued small screen assignments well into the next decade, on Canadian TV programs including "MythQuest" (PBS 2001) and "Braceface" (Teletoon 2001-04). Meanwhile, Hampshire also became a familiar presence in big screen films, often with an indie vibe. She achieved greatest popularity and visibility with her contribution to the 2006 drama "Snow Cake," opposite Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Carrie-Anne Moss; in that picture, Hampshire plays a young woman whose violent death in a road accident sets off a lengthy and tumultuous series of events. Additional theatrical movies in which Hampshire performed included David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" (2013) (as a financial wizard) and the romantic comedy "All the Wrong Reasons" (2013) (as a cashier in a chain department store). In early 2015, Hampshire began a recurring role as a manic math genius on the science fiction thriller series "12 Monkeys" (SyFy 2015- ), adapted from Terry Gilliam's 1995 sci-fi drama of the same name.
