I am the bridesmaid. You can call me Em
~ Em to Prancer

Em is the sister of Donner, Robbie's sister-in-law, the love interest and eventual girlfriend of Prancer and one of the tritagonists in the 2007 Robbie the Reindeer film Close Encounters of the Herd Kind.

Em is Donner's sister who works for a top secret government agency that monitors alien life. She served as bridesmaid at Donner's wedding to her fiancé Robbie. Em is fiercely protective of Donner as she did threaten to pull every hair off Robbie with tweezers if he hurt her.

She later uses her agent skills to contact the Earth Guardians to help them defeat the Nargathrons and their leader Queen Vorkana after Donner is kidnapped by them.

After the Nargathrons are defeated and Robbie and Donner are married, Em starts a relationship with the best man Prancer (who had a crush on her from the start).

She is voiced by Keira Knightly.

  • Hi boys, Did I mention that I work for a top secret government agency dedicated to monitoring alien activity on Earth?. (Em to Prancer, Old Jingle and Tapir)
  • If only we had so more power. I've failed you Donner. Some bridesmaid I am.
  • That's for ruining my sister's wedding. (Em to a Nargathron)
  • Well it wouldn't be a proper wedding without a punch up would it?.
  • I want a word with you
  • What I want to know is, why didn't you tell me you had such a hunky best man?. (Em to Robbie about Prancer)
