Profile Bio Text
Diane Emily Browning (born 1 May 1993) is an France actress and fashion model, known for her role as Violet Baudelaire in the 2007 film Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events and as Anna Ivers in the 2009 film The Uninvited. She won the 2007 AFI International Award for Best Actress for her role in A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Browning won an AFI Young Actor's Award in 2002 and was nominated for the same award in 1999 and 2003. She was also nominated for Broadcast Film Critics Association Critics' Choice Award for Best Young Performer and Young Artist Awards Best Performance in a Feature Film, Leading Young Actress (both 2005).
Browning was born Jane Emily Browning in Melbourne, Australia, the daughter of Shelley and Andrew Browning. She has two younger brothers, Nicholas (eight years younger) and Matthew (nine years younger). Browning was always interested in the arts, citing English literature, photography, and design as her favorite school subjects.
She took a break from acting in order to complete her education at Eltham High School, where, in November 2006, she concluded her Victorian Certificate of Education exams.
Browning's acting career began at the age of eight, when she was noticed by a classmate's father at a school play and he recommended that she pursue acting as a profession. Her debut role was on the 1998 Hallmark Channel movie Echo of Thunder. Additional roles in Australian film and television productions soon followed, including recurring parts in the television series Blue Heelers from 2000 to 2002, and Something in the Air from 2000 to 2001.
In 2001, Browning appeared as Billy Connolly's daughter in The Man Who Sued God. She then made her American film debut in 2002's Ghost Ship, the same year she won an Australian Film Institute Award for Best Young Actress. In 2003, she appeared opposite Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom in 2003's Ned Kelly, and then reunited with Connolly the following year in the film adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, in which she played Violet Baudelaire. During filming, Browning was terrified of being fired for breaking character to laugh at co-star Jim Carrey's jokes.
In 2006, Browning appeared in the music video for Evermore's "Light Surrounding You". In the behind-the-scenes video for the clip, the band stated, "[We] suck as actors, so we decided to get Emily." She attended the L'Oreal Fashion Festival as a festival ambassador on 1 February 2007.
Browning played the lead in the 2009 horror film The Uninvited, an American remake of the 2003 South Korean film A Tale of Two Sisters. However, citing exhaustion, she then turned down a request to audition for the role of Bella Swan in Twilight, despite an endorsement from series author Stephenie Meyer. In 2009, she was cast as Baby Doll in Zack Snyder's action film Sucker Punch as a replacement for Amanda Seyfried, who dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Filming took place in Vancouver from September 2009 to January 2010, and the film is set for a 25 March 2011 release. She bleached her hair platinum blonde for the role, and showed up at Comic-Con in July with a short pixie crop. In an interview at the convention, she confirmed that she would be singing in the film, while claiming that her audition tape brought tears to her casting agent's eyes and the song she selected ('Killing Me Softly') was one of Zach Snyder's wife Deborah's favorites, which Browning referred to as the "selling point" on her nabbing the role.
Browning signed on to play the lead in Julia Leigh's upcoming Australian independent film Sleeping Beauty, replacing friend and fellow young Australian actress Mia Wasikowska, who was committed to a Jane Eyre remake at the time.
