Bio

Emma Ishta is an Australian actress and model best known for her starring role as Kirsten Clark, a highly intelligent and emotionally distant computer science grad student recruited into a covert government agency to be 'stitched' into the minds of the recently deceased, in the science fiction procedural series Stitchers.

Ishta was born at home in Brookfield, Brisbane, Australia. Her passion for performance art developed at an early age. She received great support from both her parents and stepparents who were very encouraging.

At 13 she began modeling and after graduating from high school she spent the next two years splitting her time between Sydney, Paris and London.

Over the course of her career as a model she worked for many different companies and publications including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, V Magazine, DKNY and D&G.

After extensive travelling, Ishta found her soul home with the people of the whirlpool in New York City. She had forever viewed modeling as a vehicle that would help open the right doors to achieve her true calling of becoming a professional actress which ended up happening in only a short matter of time.

Ishta saw immediate success booking guest star roles on shows such as Power (Starz), Black Box (ABC) and Manhattan Love Story (ABC). She also played Katrina Blackman in the film I Smile Back, which was accepted into Sundance 2015.

After a year in the New York casting community, Ishta booked the lead role of Kirsten Clark in the ABC Family series Stitchers. Before beginning work on Stitchers, she spent the summer rehearsing and starring in the play The Flood, which premiered and ran at the NYC Fringe festival.
