Former Australian teenaged model Emma Ishta made a successful transition into both adulthood and a second career as an actor via projects like the popular science fiction television series "Stitchers" (ABC Family/Freeform, 2015- ). Born Emma Ishta Douglas-Powell in Brookfield, a suburb of the Australian city of Brisbane, Queensland, on November 16, 1990, she wanted to be a performer from a very early age, but made her first foray into the spotlight through modeling. She began appearing in print in her early teens, and graduated to international campaigns for publications like Vogue and fashion lines like DNKY. Ishta relocated to New York City in her early twenties in the hopes of establishing herself as an actress, which she succeeded in accomplishing with appearances on television series like "Black Box" (ABC, 2014) and independent features like the Sarah Silverman vehicle "I Smile Back" (2015). Ishta also found time to make her New York debut in the 2014 play "The Flood," whose star and author, Daniel James McCabe, was also her husband. Her breakout project came in 2015 via the ABC Family/Freeform series "Stitchers," which cast her as a college student recruited by a government agency to be inserted via neuroscience into the memories of murder victims in order to determine the causes of their deaths.
