YOUNG AND RESTLESS: JANA

Twice Emmy-nominated native of Bedfordshire, England, Emily O'Brien moved to the States at the age of ten. The self-professed "theater girl" promptly began performing and studying acting. She appeared in plays at Carlsbad High School and at MiraCosta College, where she majored in theater. Her hard work paid off when she was named a finalist in the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival's Irene Ryan Acting Competition in 2005.

Upon moving to Los Angeles, Emily appeared in the horror film "Séance," and on the television series "What About Brian?" and "The Reality Show." Her big break came when she was cast on the Emmy-winning "The Young And The Restless," in 2006, as 'Jana Hawkes,' a quirky young woman with a penchant for all things goth, who landed a job at the local coffeehouse and ended up falling in love with, and marrying its owner, 'Kevin.'

Recently, her storyline is front-burner, with 'Jana' being held captive by the evil 'Sheila Carter's sister, and Sheila's children, 'Daisy' and 'Ryder.'
