Emelia Hartford is a versatile and multi-talented SAG-AFTRA Actress, and Alumna of iO West Improv. She has appeared recently in two Netflix films – the first of which is “A California Christmas: City Lights,” the sequel to last year’s “A California Christmas” with Ali Afshar (now streaming) and the second to be released late Summer ‘22. She is also known for her roles in “From Mexico with Love,” directed by Jimmy Nickerson, and “Nightfall,” directed by Dave DeCoteau.
Emelia’s versatility also includes her accolades as a leading personality in the automotive industry as a record-breaking performance car builder, driver, and content creator. Out of her own small garage, she has built a world record breaking new-generation Corvette with one of the highest horsepower engines in the world, beating out major automotive companies to have one of the world’s fastest C8 Corvettes.
Her on-screen hosting appearances include Discovery’s “Young Guns” special episode of “SEMA: Battle of the Builders,” Netflix’s “Fastest Car,” and Chevrolet’s highly anticipated Next Generation Corvette Z06 National commercial and documentary, alongside NBA star Devin Booker. It was also recently announced that she will be a featured host of “Super Turbo Story Time” alongside actor/comedian Rob Corddry, an all-new adult animated series telling larger than life, untold and (mostly) true stories from the automotive world, from MotorTrend Group, a Warner Bros. Discovery company.
In the last 4 years she has amassed well over 3M followers across her platforms, all while challenging societal norms as a leading woman in the very man-dominated automotive industry. As a content creator and digital force, Emelia independently hosts her own YouTube Channel, where she builds and races a broad genre of cars generating well over 100M+ views.
