Emma Roberts is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of actress Julia Roberts. She used to roam on the sets with her father and aunt when she was a kid. It was quite obvious for Emma to choose acting and singing as career options. Her first big screen appearance was in the 2001 movie ‘Blow.’ Emma played the role of Johnny Depp’s daughter in the film. At ten, she appeared alongside her Oscar-winning aunt in the family movie ‘Grand Champion.’ She built up her career through a number of small roles in her teens.
Emma’s big breakthrough came when she was cast in the lead role of the Nickelodeon show ‘Unfabulous’ in 2004. Her performance as a girl named Addie who sings out emotions earned Emma her next big role in the 2006 movie ‘Aquamarine.’ The film went on to become a huge success and garnered many award nominations. The success helped Emma launch her music career with the release of an album, ‘Unfabulous and More’. In 2007, Emma joined the Warner Bros. movie ‘Nancy Drew’ as the titular character; movies like ‘Wild Child (2008),’ ‘Hotel for Dogs (2009),’ ‘184.108.40.206. (2010),’ and ‘Scream 4 (2011)’ later followed.

7. American Horror Story (2011 – )
Ryan Murphy recently revealed the official title and first look of the ninth season of ‘American Horror Story.’ Officially titled as ‘AHS:1984’, the upcoming season features Emma Roberts along with Olympian Gus Kenworthy, who plays her boyfriend. But Murphy didn’t slip out anything more about the plot and the couple’s role in it. Emma has played a telekinetic teen witch and former movie star Madison Montgomery in ‘Coven,’ the fortune teller Maggie Esmerelda in ‘Freak Show,’ the ambitious journalist Serena Belinda in ‘Cult,’ and Montgomery again in ‘Apocalypse.’
Murphy’s frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson is yet to confirm her return in the ninth season. Another regular face of AHS, Evan Peters, has already confirmed that he is sitting out this time. The only cast members who have their slots confirmed in the upcoming season are Roberts and Gus Kenworthy. The first look of ‘1984’ is a tribute to slasher classics like ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street,’ and ‘Halloween.’ ‘American Horror Story: 1984‘ is expected to premiere on FX by mid-September.
