Date of Birth : Dec 7th 1988
Australian actress, probably best known for her role as Violet Baudelaire in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Browning was born in Melbourne, Australia. She says she learned her American accent from the television show Sesame Street on the ABC. She has two younger brothers, Nicholas Browning and Matthew Browning. She remains based in Melbourne and was taking a break from acting to complete her education at Eltham High School, where, in November of 2006, she completed her Victorian Certificate of Education exams.
Browning’s acting career began when she was noticed by a friend’s father at a school play and he recommended that she pursue acting as a profession. Shortly afterwards, she won a role alongside Judy Davis in the Hallmark Television movie, The Echo of Thunder. A successful career in Australian film and television productions soon followed, including The Man Who Sued God, in which she played the daughter of Billy Connolly’s character. She later co-starred again with Connolly in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, in which she played the role of Violet Baudelaire. She had a reccurring role as Hayley Fulton on the popular television series ‘Blue Heelers’ from 2000 until 2002. She also played as “Katie Harwood” in the 2002 horror film Ghost Ship.
In 2006, Browning appeared in the music video for Evermore’s Light Surrounding You. In the making of video for the clip, the band stated, “…we suck as actors, so we decided to get Emily.”
She is now working on the film, A Tale of Two Sisters, which is being filmed in Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada and Vancouver and will be released in 2008.
She has appeared on the panel for Spicks and Specks twice, and is so far the youngest person to do so.
