Trivia

  • Has often been mistaken for American because of her Bates Motel character. The character of Emma was originally written as Mancunian but Cooke thought it was a failsafe measure because of her accent. Freddie Highmore helped her work on her American accent, having had previous experience with it.
  • Is good friends with her Bates Motel co-stars Freddie Highmore and Nicola Peltz and considers the cast and crew a family away from home.
  • Has contributed to "Emma's Blog" on the A&E website.
  • Like co-star Freddie Highmore, she does not use social media.
