It’s just incredible to see Emma Ishta speaking in her mother tongue and at the same time easily switching to a fluent American accent. This unique ability must have taken much, much hard work to master. We hope that she will embark on another project/TV series so that we can see and hear more of her.

2. Fan Of Star Wars

Having starred in a sci-fi television series that no one else had ever seen or imagined before, it will come as no surprise that she likes fantasy and science fiction movies.
