Emilie de Ravin was born on December 27, 1981 in the Melbourne suburb of Mount Eliza, Victoria. Her father is of French ancestry. She has two older half-sisters. Studying ballet since nine years old, she was accepted to the renowned Australian Ballet School at fifteen. As a student, Emilie performed in several school productions and at the dance training institute Danceworld 301.
In 1999, Emilie decided to get into more of the theatrical side of performance art and gave herself two months to try out acting. From this, she procured her first professional acting part was the recurring role of a scantily-clad villainess on the campy Australian television series BeastMaster series. In December of the same year, she, with the support of her parents and sisters, went to Hollywood to seek out an agent. After having done so, she returned home and received a call from a 20-Century casting director, who had seen her on Beastmaster and requested she show up for an audition. Moving to Los Angeles in February, Emilie actively looked for work while studying with Prime Time Actors Studio. In her first week of auditions, she landed the part of Tess Harding on the science fiction television series Roswell.
After the series ended, Emilie tackled television guest spots before signing on to Lost as a pregnant, plane-wrecked beauty. While it was tough to get screen time on the sprawling ensemble show, she was a frequent focal point. But she also made the most of her hiatuses, appearing in several movies, including the critically acclaimed indie Brick, the remake of The Hills Have Eyes and the romantic drama Remember Me.
Emilie met American actor Josh Janowicz in Los Angeles during 2002, and after dating for three years, he proposed her on New Year's Day in Melbourne in 2005. During the spare time she was not filming for Lost in Oahu, Hawaii, Emilie spent thousands as a frequent flier by paying for her own airline tickets in returning home to Burbank, California where she lived with Josh and their pet poodle, Bella.
