The talented Australian actress Emily Browning had always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, but being discovered as a versatile child actor in a school play at the age of 8, soon sent her on a different, but very successful, path.
She made her movie debut in 1998 with The Echo of Thunder, an Australian television film, going on to have roles in Blue Heelers, High Flyers, and Something in the Air.
Her breakthrough, though, came in 2002 with her performance in the horror film Ghost Ship – a tricky role. For the difficult underwater scenes, weights were attached to her dress in order to stop it obscuring her vision. However, in the same year, she won the Best Young Actress award at the Australian Film Institute Award and was nominated for the same award in 2003.
During the filming of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events in 2004, she is quoted as saying how much she enjoyed working alongside Jim Carey, but was worried she would be fired for laughing too much. However, having to wear high heels to match Liam Aiken in height focused her concentration on trying to walk!
Author Stephanie Meyer requested her to portray Bella in the Twilight film in 2008 but she turned it down because she wanted to focus on her studies. She did, however, work with Twilight’s director for the film Plush and with Meyer in the film The Host in 2013.
In 2011, she was no. 4 in the Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces.
