Emmett Preciado, formerly known as Emmett Claren, is an American transgender actor and singer-songwriter of Latin, Spanish, and Italian descent.
He was born in Merced, California but grew up in Chilton, Wisconsin. He started to seriously pursue his acting career after dropping out of college to physically transition. Emmett has been cast in a couple of series and got his first Principal Role in the Spring of 2019. He is currently a Recurring Co-Star on a major TV series and just shot his first Guest Star role on another major series.
Fun fact about Emmett’s last name: his former last name, “Claren,” was actually made up. He never knew his grandfather, meaning Emmett’s father didn’t know who his father was. On his dad’s birth certificate, “Claren” was the name written down. But in 2019, Emmett’s dad took a “23andMe” test and found his father and a whole side of the family they never knew about! The name on his birth certificate should have been Preciado, the name he now proudly goes by.
