The same year, she was also given a role in an episode of Highlander: The Series where she played the role Maria Alcobar. Her breakthrough came in 1998 when she starred on The Outer Limits, playing the role Shal

When Emmanuelle was asked about her workout routine, she said, “When I’m not working I train at a private gym and I’m usually at the gym six days a week. When I’m working I try to get to the gym at least four or five times a week. When I’m in Vancouver I work with my trainer Anna Wong, doing a lot of free weights and circuit training, but when I’m in LA my gym has a lot of great classes. I probably should do Yoga but I really prefer to hit the weights as I feel like I get more out of that style of training and I find it hard to sit through an hour and a half yoga class.
As for her diet, she revealed, “Diet is a huge part of it– I mean you can train until you are blue in the face but if you aren’t eating right then you aren’t going to see huge results. It’s very hard to eat clean when you’re on set because there is always a lot of junk food on the craft service table, like chocolate and donuts. It’s always a battle for me, but you have to make the effort. I have to ask for something healthier if I want to stay away from the sweet foods.
