On February 10 Emma Roberts was born…

On February 10, 1991 Emma Roberts was born. 

The actress, daughter of Eric Roberts and niece of Julia Roberts, began her career as a child actor on the Nickelodean series “Unfabulous,” which ran from 2004 – 2007. She soon launched her film career by having lead roles in 2006’s “Aquamarine” and 2007’s “Nancy Drew,” the latter in which played the title character. She transitioned into more adult roles by starring in the romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day” in 2010 alongside her aunt Julia Roberts, as well as starring in the horror film “Scream 4” in 2011 – which was part of the famed horror series.

Her television roles have gained her pop culture fame (which a bevy of memes and gifs created surrounding her characters), most notably starring as Madison Montgomery in 2013’s “American Horror Story: Coven” and as Chanel Oberlin alongside horror icon Jamie Lee Curtis in Fox’s 2015 horror-comedy series “Scream Queens.” In addition, she played psychic Maggie Esmerelda in 2014 on “American Horror Story: Freak Show.” Both “American Horror Story” and “Scream Queens” are helmed by Ryan Murphy, an often collaborator of Roberts.
