Meet 'Hemlock Grove' Resident Emilia McCarthy With the arrival of Hemlock Grove on Netflix, there are some interesting - and potentially disturbing - characters about. One of the seemingly more normal residents of the fictional Pennsylvania town is Alyssa Sworn, the daughter of the town sheriff (Battlestar Galactica's Aaron Douglas) who appears to be just another teenager...but don't sleep on her, because Alyssa has a huge secret that could affect the entire town.

BFTV recently spoke with actress Emilia McCarthy, who plays Alyssa, on what brought her to Hemlock Grove and her own unique background.

"There's a lot of things that are going to happen that you wouldn't expect to happen and I think that's huge," said Emilia, who's sworn to secrecy about what exactly Alyssa's hiding. Although it involves werewolves and vampires, she added that "It still has a mystery aspect. This show is very unique, definitely."

"I've never done anything in this genre before and it was very intriguing to me and interesting," she continued. "Everyone in production and all the actors, they're just so sweet and so comfortable to work with. I had a blast and I would love to keep working on this show."

The recurring role of Alyssa is a great opportunity for Emilia to introduce herself to a worldwide audience, after mostly having made her name in her native Canada. She began her career playing the character of Laura in two TV movies, Booky and the Secret Santa and Booky's Crush, for Canadian broadcaster CBC. "They're really cute movies actually and I was quite little. I think I was about eleven," she reflected. "I was kind of in my awkward stage but I got past that! I think it's just cute to reminisce and watch those."

"It kind of came naturally," said Emilia of what motivated her to become an actress. "Honestly, it was just kind of a passion. I woke up one day and I'm like, 'Dad, Mom, I want to be an actor.'"...
