Emily Alyn Lind played the part of Emma Lavery on All My Children back in 2010. Since then she has gone on to film several TV movies, feature films, and can currently be seen on ABC’s Revenge!

Q&A is not to be duplicated elsewhere and claimed as their own.

1. What has been your favorite movie to film?

I probably had the most fun filming “A Haunting in Georgia” because I love scary movies, and the effects are great! I love filming something that isn’t there and knowing that they’ll add it later. It’s a fun challenge. But I have to say that working with Leonardo was pretty exciting too. Oh yeah, and meeting and working with Clint Eastwood – he’s so cool, just like you would think.

2. What’s the coolest thing about filming Revenge?

My favorite part of working on Revenge is getting the new script and finding out what Amanda is going to do next. I’m so hooked on the show. I mean, even if I wasn’t working on it, it would be a show I would watch all the time. And Emily Van Camp is super sweet – I really feel lucky to be playing her mini-me.

3. How did you like getting to play Shirley Temple for J.Edgar?

It was such an honor playing Shirley Temple. I would love to meet her now and tell her how much I liked playing her and how much I love her movies. The wardrobe was probably the best I’ve ever had. The whole experience with Leo, Judi Dench, Armee Hammer, and Clint – playing Shirley Temple! It was the best ever!

4. How did you like working with the other kids for Eastwick?

The other kids on Eastwick were great! I’m still in touch with Mia – who is sooo cute! We really bonded when we worked together. I hope we get to play sisters again.

5. Do you still keep in touch with any of your AMC co-stars?

I keep in touch with Cameron and Rebecca and the coolest thing – I went to work with my sister Aly the other day on The Young and the Restless and turned the corner and Missy was standing there! My Mom on AMC! She’s new on the show and now my little sis will be working with her! It was so great to see her again! I really miss the AMC cast – we were like family.

6. How has your fundraising for Make A Wish been going?

My Make a Wish Fund is going great! My sisters are starting to do it too. I raised money on Steel Town and I’m hoping that other kids start raising money on their sets for their charities too.

7. Do you ever get recognized in public for any of your roles?

I’m being recognized a lot for Revenge. People ask me if I’m the screaming girl on Revenge! I guess it’s ok to be known for that! I used to get stopped a lot for AMC too. It’s so cool to know that people are watching. And they’re always so nice when they stop me – and they thank me! And I always say, no thank you!

8. Do you have a favorite event/premiere that you’ve attended?

The best event I ever attended was the Cannes Film Festival in France. I was so young! But it was enormous! And the part I’ll never forget is that the party after the movie STARTED at midnight! And I got to go! It was so much fun!

9. Who would you love the chance to work with one day?

I want to work with Meryl Streep and Amanda Siefried…I love both of their work so much! Maybe Meryl could be Amanda’s mom and Amanda could be my mom? That sounds good! Also, I would love my Mom to play my mom in a movie, and both my sisters to play my sisters…oh yeah, and my dog, Georgie to play my dog. She’s a good actress too. We put her in all our movies!

10. What is your favorite AMC memory?

I’ll always remember shooting my birthday scene – they actually had real presents wrapped because it was actually my birthday too! They made a big banner for me and I have it hanging in my room. Susan Lucci signed it on top – I miss her!

Please watch the Hollywood Christmas Parade on Dec. 12 (my mom and sisters and me are all in it!) and Prep and Landing on Dec. 5….I play Grace Goodwin who almost destroys Christmas. And you can find me @emilyalynlind on twitter and Emily Alyn Lind on Facebook!!!!

We’d like to thank Emily and her family for participating in this year’s Holiday Q&A Event!
