Emma Lee Bunton (born 21 January 1976) is an English pop singer, songwriter, and occasional actress. Emma is best known for being a member of the successful '90s girl group, the Spice Girls. Emma was known as "Baby Spice", in the group, as she was the youngest member, had an "innocent" demeanour, and often wore "baby doll" dresses.
Bunton was born in Finchley and grew up in Woodside Park, both in Barnet, London. Her parents, Pauline, a karate instructor, and Trevor, a milkman, split up when she was eleven, and she stayed with her mother. She has a younger brother, Paul James. She attended St Theresa's Roman Catholic Primary School in Finchley, and then went on to go to the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, Westminster. In 1993, she appeared in the on-going ITV1's police drama series The Bill, and also auditioned (although unsuccessfully) for the role of Bianca, later to be played by Patsy Palmer, in the BBC's soap opera EastEnders.
Spiceworld is the debut feature film of the four-time BRIT Award-winning English pop girl group Spice Girls directed by Bob Spiers and written by Kim Fuller and Jamie Curtis. It details the events leading up to their upcoming major concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, liberally interspersed with dream sequences and flashbacks as well as non sequiturs such as surreal moments and humorous asides. Released in the UK on Boxing Day, 1997 and North America on 23 January, 1998, the lighthearted comedy was made in a similar vein to The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night and featured a multitude of cameos and guest stars including Roger Moore, Elton John, Jennifer Saunders, Richard E. Grant, Michael Barrymore, Hugh Laurie and Meat Loaf.
