Meet The Team: Emmett Hanly


Storyteller for Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours

Emmett (they/them) had their eyes on Forbidden Vancouver for a while. Their love for dark history and ghost stories led them to apply, and they joined us as a storyteller for the Lost Souls of Gastown Tour in 2022.

Emmett earned their BFA in acting in 2020, where they honed their dramatic skills. They’ve also worked with Playwright’s Theatre Centre for Early Career Development and is currently an apprentice at Pacific Theatre as an apprentice for their 2022/2023 season. Their weekly performances with Forbidden Vancouver scratch that “live performance” itch.

Emmett is a proud member of the Métis Nation of British Columbia and says they’re a “total nerd” for their love of horror movies, Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic the Gathering. They’re also in a rad psychedelic post-punk/crankwave band called Rougaroux,  which you can check out on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever else you listen to music.

Join Emmett on a Lost Souls of Gastown Tour!
