Caulfield's first notable role was as Brandon Walsh's girlfriend, Susan Keats, on Beverley Hill, 90210 in 1995. She appeared for thirty episodes in the series before departing in 1996. In 1998, Emma starred in her most famous role to date, as Anya Jenkins on the WB's hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Originally, her character was only to appear for several episodes. However, audiences responded well to Anya, resulting in Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon's decision to add her to the cast.
In 2003, Emma landed her first lead role in the horror movie Darkness Falls, which debuted at number one in the U.S. box office. In 2004, she appeared on Monk as Meredith Preminger in the episode "Mr. Monk and the Girl Who Cried Wolf". Caulfield also starred in the satire Bandwagon, playing a fictionalized and unflattering version of herself as a superficial, arrogant actress whose career is imploding. The movie was written and directed by close friend and fellow actress Karri Bowman. It screened at various festivals, although it has not been picked up for distribution. Several members of Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast and crew have cameos in the film.
Caulfield is also the co-author of the webcomic Contropussy.
Caulfield starred in the independent feature film TiMER, released May 2009. In 2010, Caulfield posted her 2004 independent movie Bandwagon, which was never publicly released, online in ten parts turning it into a webseries. She starred as the lead role in the FunnyOrDie short film, Don't Panic, It's Organic. In 2011, a season 2 of Bandwagon began.
In 2012, Caulfield received critical acclaim for her guest appearance on the ABC fantasy series Once Upon a Time, as the Blind Witch from the fairy tale Hansel & Gretel. She guest starred in the second season of the Jane Espenson scripted romantic comedy web series, Husbands.
Caulfield recently garnered new following on her Youtube channel, Essnemma, on which she uploaded videos on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The channel ran from July 19, 2012 until March 27, 2014, when her contract with My Damn Channel ended.
She will appear as the Blind Witch once again in Season Five.
