Pixar’s Luca has just dropped on Disney Plus and fans are falling in love with Luca, Alberto, and the town of Portorosso. The film follows the adventures of Luca, a sea monster boy who can assume human form when out of the water. However, people have also become huge fans of Luca’s quirky friend Giulia. But what is the age of Emma Berman, the voice actor behind this character? We meet the San Franciscan newcomer.

Meet the Luca movie star

Emma Berman is relatively new to the Hollywood movie industry. At the moment she only has two acting credits on her IMDB page. These are Pixar’s Luca and a TV series called Toot-Toot Cory Carson where she voices the character of Winifred Wings.

Berman is from San Francisco and attends Stratford School. She got the fantastic opportunity to voice Giulia in Luca when she was starting the sixth grade.

It appears that performing is in Berman’s veins as she has previously performed with the American Conservatory Theater, as well as singing in musicals such as Annie with the Bay Space Youngsters.

She then signed with Stars Agency in San Francisco and was able to gain a few voice over jobs.

Luca’s director Enrico Casarosa has said that he fell in love with the texture of Berman’s voice almost immediately and knew she had to have the role.

What is Emma Berman’s age?

According to her agency page Emma Berman is 12 years old. She was born on 1 August 2008 in San Francisco and is a Leo.

Her passions include go-karting, drawing and painting, and she also loves reading books such as The Hobbit, Harry Potter and everything by Roald Dahl.

Emma Berman’s parents are both immigrants from Russia, and Emma speaks fluent Russian at home. She also has a brother called Mark.

Who does she play in Luca?

In Luca Emma Berman voices the character of Giuliette ‘Giulia’ Marcovaldo. She is an outsider, and swiftly becomes friends with Luca and Alberto.

Giulia is a confident and outgoing character who loves books, and who wants to win the local Portorosso Cup. This is a triathlon that includes biking, swimming, and (our favourite part), a pasta eating competition.

Luca is a visually stunning story about friendship, acceptance and sun-filled adventures.

You can watch Pixar’s Luca on Disney Plus now.
