Emily Olivia Leah Blunt was born on February 23, 1983 in Wandsworth London, England. Unlike most actress, Blunt did not find her movie career path until when she was past seven years old. Between the ages of seven and fourteen, Blunt stuttered, and this became an issue for her as she was always troubled by it. However, one of her school teachers helped her overcome this problem, but putting her through acting. Blunt was able to handle different roles like a professional, and that marked the end of her stuttering problem.
To show people who are in the shoes she once was, Blunt became one of the board members of the American Institute for Stuttering.
After graduating from Ibstock Place School, situated in Roehampton, Blunt enrolled into a private college known as Hurtwood House, located in Dorking, Surrey, at the age of sixteen. This school was specially known for its incredible performing arts program and since Blunt loved acting, she was perfect for the school. Some people say that Blunt began her acting career fully in 2001, with a debut role in "The Royal Family." However, the "A Quiet Place" actress has a different opinion about her debut role.
A debut role in a movie can be defined as the role that launches an actor or actress into the movie industry and makes him or her known among fans. Some people have their debut films in the first movies they star in, while others have to wait for several years and several movies to have that big break. A big break in the industry is very important because the more people know who you are as an actor or actress, it is no longer very difficult to land import roles in iconic movies.
Speaking on her debut role in the movie industry, Blunt shocked everyone when she mentioned the name of the movie she thinks launched her career. According to the actress, a 2004 film titled "My Summer Of Love," in which she starred as a lonely young girl is the film that blew up her career. Fans were perplexed because majority of them easily went for a 2006 movie titled "The Devil Wears Prada."
What was Blunt's reason for choosing this film as her breakout in the movie industry? Let's find out.
Speaking in an interview, Blunt mentioned that she regarded this film as her first big one because she was not cut out for the role in any way. The actress revealed that she had barely trained for the role, but she got to learn a lot of things in the short time.
