Biography

A native of Melbourne, Australian actress Emily Browning broke into show business on a national level rather early on, with repeat high-profile appearances in Aussie series including Something in the Air and Blue Heelers. She transitioned to the big screen -- and quickly attained international exposure with a Hollywood turn in the Scott Rudin-produced, Jim Carrey-starring fantasy Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004), and in the meantime completed her high school degree. A number of additional assignments followed, including (most notably) the 2009 supernatural horror remake The Uninvited, the fantastical action film Sucker Punch, and the erotic drama Sleeping Beauty. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
