EMILY BROWNING (Cassia) Australian born actress Emily Browning has surged to the forefront of the most talented group of young leading actresses of her generation.

At the age of nine, Browning began her professional acting career with a role in a made-for-television film, "The Echo of Thunder," opposite Judy Davis. She then went on to work on several Australian small screen series, including recurring roles in "Something in the Air" and "Blue Heelers." In 2001, Browning played the guest lead of Christie in "Halifax f.p: Playing God" for which she won an Australian Film Institute Award (AFI) for Best Young Actor. A year later, she appeared in "After the Deluge" opposite Rachel Griffiths, for which she was again nominated for an AFI Award for Best Young Actor.

Browning continued to build her career with a string of feature film credits including The Man who Sued God with Billy Connolly and Judy Davis; Revolution Studios' Darkness Falls; Ghost Ship for Warner Bros. and Ned Kelly, opposite Heath Ledger. In 2004 she scored the breakthrough role of 'Violet' in Paramount/Dreamworks' Lemony Snicket's - A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the best-selling books, alongside Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law. It was for this role that she was awarded with an AFI for International Best Actress and also received a Critics Choice Award nomination.

Upon returning to Australia, Browning focused on completing her secondary studies, however she took time out to work on the AFI & IF award winning short feature Stranded, with Emma Lung. In 2008, Browning filmed the lead in The Uninvited for Paramount, opposite Elizabeth Banks. The following year, Browning starred in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch, alongside Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens and Jena Malone.

Immediately upon wrapping Sucker Punch, Browning committed herself to the provocative lead role in Julia Leigh's ground breaking debut feature Sleeping Beauty, which was an Official Selection of Cannes in Competition in May 2011. In 2012, Browning filmed the British drama Summer in February opposite Dominic Cooper and Dan Stevens, Magic Magic for director Sebastian Silva opposite Michael Cera and Juno Temple (Cannes selection: Director's Fortnight). Browning will next be seen in Stuart Murdoch's much-anticipated feature God Help the Girl, and Catherine Hardwicke's Plush.
