On this week's show, we welcome Emily Hahn who stars in the new film "Beautifully Broken". A refugee's escape, a prisoner's promise, and a daughter's painful secret converge in this inspiring true story of hope.
Emily Hahn was raised on a ranch in Ojai, CA. She grew up playing soccer, surfing and driving tractors on her ranch. When she was 7 years old she decided she wanted to participate in theater at the local Ojai Art Center. In the production of “The Music Man,” which was a non-speaking role, Hahn was approached by Jeanine Cosden, a manager, after the show. Cosden introduced Emily to CESD where she was signed across the board. Her first audition was for Bonnie in Toy Story 3. She booked it. She has appeared in shows such as House, Hawthorne and Brothers and Sisters. Now, a decade later, Hahn will be seen portraying the true life story of Andrea Hartley in Beautifully Broken in theaters August 24, 2018. Hahn portrays Andrea’s journey through sexual abuse and finding peace even in times of deep hurt. Hahn can also be seen portraying the comedic and nerdy Madi Stein in One Nation Under God in theaters later this year. In her spare time, Hahn writes her own original music and has recently recorded the dance/pop mix version of the song “Beautifully Broken” set to be released in the near future.Catch this week's episode of @LisaHendey and friends with tremendous talent #EmilyHahn of @BBrokenMovie #BeautifullyBroken #BBrokenMovie - Emily shares on reconciliation and the realities of being a young working actor in today's world Click To Tweet
