Meet The Team: Emmett Hanly


Storyteller for Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours

I’m Emmett (or Emm) Hanly, and I’ve always been drawn to dark history and ghost stories. Signing up to lead the Lost Souls of Gastown Tour in 2022 was a no-brainer!

I got my BFA in acting in 2020 and I’ve also spent time with the Playwright’s Theatre Centre for Early Career Development and recently completed an apprenticeship as an actor and playwright at Pacific Theatre. I’m constantly working on new creative projects! My weekly gigs with Forbidden Vancouver are just the fix I need for live performance.

I am a proud member of the Métis Nation of British Columbia. I’m also a total nerd, being obsessed with horror flicks, Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic the Gathering. Plus, I’m in a psychedelic post-punk band called Rougaroux. You can find us on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your music.
