Early life and education

She grew up being interested in numerous things; by the time she turned 14, Emma had already taken guitar and piano lessons, practiced acting, dancing and singing, and also tried playing several sports, including soccer and volleyball. She attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 1989 moved to the USA, where she enrolled at college, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in 1993.

As of December 2021, Emma appears to be single, was once married to Trey Parker, and doesn’t have children.

Who is her former husband Trey Parker?
Randolph Severn ‘Trey’ Parker III was born in Conifer, Colorado USA, on 19 October 1969 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality. He’s played and voiced characters in close to 50 movies and TV series, while he’s probably known best for his voicing of the lead characters Stan Marsh and Eric Cartman, as well as various others, in the critically acclaimed animated comedy series “South Park”.
Trey created the series together with Matt Stone and Brian Graden, which also stars Matt Stone and Isaac Hayes, and follows the lives of four friends who are attending an elementary school in South Park in Colorado; the series has been airing since 1997, and has won 23 awards, including five Primetime Emmys, while it’s been nominated for 91 other awards.
Trey was raised in Conifer alongside his sister Shelley, by their father Randolph ‘Randy’ Parker who was a geologist, and their mother Sharon who was an insurance saleswoman. He became a huge fan of the comedy troupe Monty Python at a very early age, and began dreaming of becoming a comedian and actor. He was 14 when he started filming his own short movies with his friends, while his father supported his dream by buying him a video camera.
Trey was amongst the popular teenagers at his high school, because he was the head of the school’s choir, and played lead roles in numerous school plays. Upon matriculating in 1988, he enrolled at Berklee College of Music, but switched to the University of Colorado, Boulder after half a year.
In 1992, Trey and the boy whom he met at the university, Matt Stone, launched the production company Avenging Conscience, and released their first short animated film “Jesus vs. Frosty” in the same year. In October 1993, their debut feature-length movie premiered, entitled “Alfred Packer: The Musical”; it was purchased by Troma Entertainment and renamed to “Cannibal! The Musical”, becoming a huge hit.
They made the pilot episode of the animated series “South Park” on a $300,000 budget, taking three months to complete. Because of great advertising, the company with which Trey and Matt worked, Comedy Central, made over $30 million just by selling T-shirts, and that was even before the first episode of “South Park” aired.
While “South Park” became Trey’s main focus, he has also worked on numerous other projects, including the 2004 action comedy movie “Team America: World Police” and the 2011 Broadway play “The Book of Mormon”, which is currently being turned into a movie.
For his work in the film industry, Trey has won 20 of the 44 awards for which he’s been nominated, including a 2000 Oscar nomination for Best Music, Original Song, for the animated fantasy comedy movie “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut”.
