Emilija Baranac Facts
- Both of her parents are Serbian, and Serbian is her 1st language.
- Even though she was naturally outgoing and cheerful, in elementary school she became shy because she couldn’t speak English, nor understand other kids there.
- Her parents sent her to acting classes to improve her language skills and gain back her ruined self-esteem, and she accidentally found out she was passionate about it.
- Emilija got her 1st acting agent when she was only 9 years old.
- Strong female roles make her feel empowered. Some of those are Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot, Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, and Rey from Star Wars franchise, portrayed by Daisy Ridley, and Ellen Ripley from the movie Alien (1979).
- She began taking psychology classes at university because she took an interest in it while in high school.
- Emilija claims that psychology classes helped her learn more about herself, as well as contribute to her acting skills. The knowledge helped her tap into the thoughts and actions of characters she had to play.
- Emilija tends to wear as little makeup as possible because her skin is very sensitive. She has an eczema breakout on her face in winter months, which forces her to use a lot of moisturizer products to keep it flawless.
- In 2016, she was roommates with Kiarra Goldberg, a New York/Vancouver-based actress.
- Emilija adores baggy jeans and sweaters, as well as Converse All-Stars and Vans sneakers.

- She said that her boldest look was wearing bright blue lipstick in public.
- Her idea of a cozy holiday was curling up in her bed, covered by many layers of blankets with a coffee nearby, and binge-watching a TV show.
- Emilija’s favorite scenes from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) were when her character’s true feelings were shown. They conveyed a real fear of not knowing what to do in life while you’re in high school and the excess of emotions that typically followed puberty.
- She agreed that the actors who were known for playing the meanest roles in movies or TV shows were usually the nicest people in person.
