Emma Rayne Lyle

ACTOR

When I was six years old, I booked a small indie film titled Little Red Wagon and became SAG-AFTRA eligible. After that, things sort of snowballed for me. I booked Return and played Linda Cardellini and Michael Shannon’s daughter, then I booked I Don’t Know How She Does It and played Greg Kinnear and Sarah Jessica Parker’s daughter, I followed those films up with a lead role in Why Stop Now  where I played Melissa Leo’s daughter and Jesse Eisenberg’s sister.  I completed a handful of indie films and starred on the television crime dramas:  Law & Order: SVU and The Mentalist. 

Once I turned 14, things started to slow down for me – they call it the deadzone, but I still managed to continue to book a few indie projects after moving even further away from NYC & LA to central Kentucky.  I booked every job via self-tape before it was the norm. I booked the AT&T crime drama Mr. Mercedes, Jessica Darling’s It List, and Mail Order Monster.

After I wrapped Mail Order Monster, I was diagnosed with moderate scoliosis in 2018. In order to attend physical therapy at home, I took a little break from acting and returned to high school to finish my degree, but I continued to train online. The Covid pandemic slowed things down a lot for most people in the industry, but my acting career came to a screeching halt after I was in a car accident and broke my spine in two places.

After recovering from my car accident and graduating high school in 2021, I moved to New York City to resume my acting career.I booked David E Kelley’s newest crime drama, The Calling, and worked with legendary film & television director Barry Levinson. The Calling premieres on the Peacock Channel on November 11th, 2022.  

I tried to do the struggling actor thing and work in the service industry – but my back isn’t allowing me to– and your girl likes to eat LOL! I am excited to announce I am now offering online coaching and reading sessions for child actors ages 6-14. I really enjoy coaching little kids and pre-teens. I’ve been there. I know what they are going through and I feel like I can make a difference in helping them be confident and find themselves on the page.

I am so thrilled to begin this next chapter in my life. Mention the code ERL-FREE30 and get your first 30 minute session FREE.

I can’t wait to meet and work with you! 

Love,

Coaching Services

What I Offer

Many child actors thrive without any coaching whatsoever, but for some, a little coaching makes all the difference in the world.  I focus on nurturing the actor’s natural strengths and discourage any overacting. Not every coach is for every actor so it’s important to find a coach you or your child responds to the best. Some coaches may be great at comedy but not so good at drama. And in all honesty, I tend to be better with drama. I hope I get to work with you soon!
