The action movie ‘Blacklight’ just hit theaters and it stars Hampton Roads native Emmy Raver-Lampman.
Raver-Lampman grew up in Norfolk where she attended the performing arts high school, Governor’s School for the Arts, as well as Maury High in Norfolk.
In the new film she plays Mira, a journalist who writes for a Washington, D.C., political blog, alerts FBI fixer Travis Block (Liam Neeson) to corruption in the bureau.
Raver-Lampman says she related to her film character Mira’s work ethic. In an interview with UPI she explains, “I’ve had a job of some sort since I was 13 years old. I’m a very organized person, so I think organization has also come into great help as an actor.”
While growing up in Norfolk, she worked as camp counselor at the Hurrah Players and at the popular Norfolk bagel shop, Yorgo’s Bageldashery.
The actress, also known for her role as Allison Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy, will return to the Netflix show for a third season later this year. She also joined the cast of Apple TV+’s animated musical Central Park, in 2021.
