"Emma," portrayed by Christine Ko, is Ally’s roommate and an old friend of Dave’s from the advertising world. Undeniably cool, Emma somehow knows all the people and gets into all the parties. She is a designer / director who becomes a creative partner for Dave.
Christine Ko recently wrapped a starring role in Alan Yang’s directorial debut feature film Tigertail for Netflix opposite John Cho, Tzi Ma and Hayden Szeto. Macros’ Charles King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks produced the film.
Ko can soon be seen in the Amazon series Upload created by Greg Daniels alongside Robbie Amell and Andy Allo. Last year, Ko appeared in a season-long arc on Hawaii Five-O for CBS, but she is perhaps best known as social media guru “Emma” on the acclaimed comedy sitcom The Great Indoors with Joel McHale and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Her other credits include Ballers for HBO, Relationship Status, also starring Milo Ventimiglia and the independent feature The Jade Pendant.
Ko is a Chicago native and was raised in Atlanta and Taiwan.
