The Very Beautiful Emmy Rossum...
Birth Place: New York, New York, USA
Date of Birth: September 12, 1986
Famous for: Her role in 'The Phantom of the Opera'
A mixture of Dutch and Scotch-Irish heritage, actress Emmy Rossum gathered applause for portraying the Golden Globe-nominated role of the lovely chorus-singer Chistine in Joel Schumacher’s film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit stage musical The Phantom of the Opera (2004).
A Trained Opera Singer, from a very young age, who has appeared in 20 different operas singing in five languages, Rossum was also seen in the big screen’s Mystic River (2003) and The Day After Tomorrow (2004). Emmy’s real breakthrough arrived in 2004.
Filmmaker Joel Schumacher handed her the female lead role of Phantom’s (played by Gerard Butler) young student and love admiration, the obscure chorus-singer Chistine Daae, in his screen adaptation based on Gaston Leroux's 20th century French novel; also featuring Patrick Wilson. A role she was born for, as some would say, as she also studied ballet.
Emmy’s solid performance nabbed a nomination at the Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress (Musical or Comedy) and won National Board of Review, Broadcast Film Critics Association, and Boston Society of Film Critics Awards.
"I'm convinced wearing those corsets for 14 hours at a time deformed me for life," she says. "I was 16 years old and still growing at the time of the shooting. I could barely breathe, and with Christine's intense emotions I hyperventilated and almost passed out. I think her name is Christine for a reason. She is Christ-like."

The Most Perfect Christine of all...Anna O'Byrne...
With her doll-like features, a gown drowning in tulle and the Regent or Princess Theatres as a backdrop, Anna O’Byrne looks like she has floated straight from the pages of a fairytale
Like porcelain, her skin is a photographers dream and with a pitch perfect voice she is sure to turn any man's head, (not just Phantom's)...
These wonderful features have set this Christine apart to create the classic style needed for the role of a more mature Christine and stage mother to a 10 year old son...
