Emily West made a guest appearance on primetime television last night (1/10) on ABC’s Body of Proof playing a troubled girl with a drug problem accused of killing a dealer. The episode features the new song the song from West titled “Head On,” written by Trent Dabbs and Gabriel Kelley.
“This is a perfect opportunity for me because this character I play is really raw and kind of messed up so I love that. I love anything that’s a little dysfunctional,” West told John Dwyer of ABC’s WKRN News 2.
West was sent the script in an unconventional way without an agent, manager or acting coach but landed the role from some executives she met an industry party last year.
“[The executive said], ‘Hey, do you act?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ She says, ‘Okay because I’m going to send you a script because there’s a really cool opportunity to play this part in Body of Proof,'” said West, adding, “things like that don’t happen like that.”
West’s TV appearance coincides with her December self-released EP, I Hate You I Love You, which reached the No. 2 position on the iTunes Singer-songwriter chart. This 6-song EP includes “Head On” and joins “Blue Sky” as the only music West has available for purchase from her catalog. West recorded a music video in December for the title track off of her EP, “I Hate You I Love You.”
