They must feed them something unique on the set of the hit UK soap Hollyoaks, as it seems that we get a former Hollyoaks star heading to the US to try to make a name for themselves on a regular basis. We have seen the likes of Roxanne McKee, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Ricky Whittle all enjoying success in Hollywood and there is another actress trying to make a name for herself in the US.
Actress Emma Rigby rose to fame playing the role of Hannah Ashworth in Hollyoaks, before deciding to leave the show and head off in search of new projects and challenges in her acting career. Since then, Emma has landed a number of interesting and exciting television and movie roles, although she has yet to really land that big Hollywood leading lady role, which would give her the breakthrough her career needs.
It is probably fair to say that the biggest role that Emma Rigby has landed in the US to date, was playing the character Anastasia aka The Red Queen in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. Unfortunately for Emma, the show was cancelled after only one season, leaving the actress to go in search of a new project.
There is no denying that Emma Rigby is a very talented actress and she also has the beauty to rival any woman in Hollywood but she is still waiting for that breakthrough leading lady role. With the right role, in the right project, Emma Rigby could certainly go on to become a huge Hollywood star and we hope that she can achieve this in the very near future.
