In 2013 Emmy played the role of an evil witch called Ridley Duchannes in the romantic gothic fantasy film Beautiful Creatures and although the movie was considered a box office flop Rossum’s performance was praised by critics. She says that she loved playing Ridley. “You hate that you love her, and love to hate her,” she said. “She’s so fun. She was my favorite character when I was reading the book. She’s noisy and attention-hogging, campy and very self-indulgent.” Emmy takes acting seriously and it shows. “I’m heavy on preparation,” she said, “Some actors come to the set and don’t know what scene they’re playing, but that would make me crazy. It’s not about control, but perfectionism–my biggest vice and one of my biggest assets.”
