Hunter Emery is an American actor living in New York City. Emery was born in Boulder, Colorado to a special education teacher and jazz guitarist/painter. He discovered his passion for acting in high school when, on a dare, he auditioned for the school production of the film Good Will Hunting, where he landed the role of Will's best friend, Chuckie. A week into rehearsals he informed both his baseball and wrestling coaches that he would not be on either team that year. He had found his calling. For the next three years he spent almost all of his free time in the Drama Department. After graduation, he followed his dream of being an actor to New York City where he attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He graduated AADA in 2007 and has been working in theatre, televison, and film ever since.
