There, an agent discovered and signed her.

Is Emily Blunt religious?

Emily Blunt grew up in a Christian home but no longer seems religious. In an interview, she said, "I would say that I'm Christian, but I wouldn't say that I'm particularly religious in any way. I think that the people that I met on the movie, and they were real born-again Christians, seemed very sorted as if God had dropped in their laps and suddenly everything was fine. I don't know what I feel about that."
