Bio

Abbie Cornish is an Australian actress best known for her film roles including her award-winning lead role in 2004's Somersault, and internationally for her role as Fanny Brawne in Bright Star and her appearance as Sweet Pea in Sucker Punch.

She also had a starring role as Belinda Mulrooney, a shrewd businesswoman who - by the time the Klondike Gold Rush was in full swing - was set up nicely as the hotel, restaurant and sawmill magnate of Dawson, in the period drama miniseries Klondike.

Cornish began an award-winning acting career as a young girl in her native Australia. Since 2004 she has garnered a host of awards including the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress at the FCCA and IF Awards and Best Breakthrough Performance at the 2005 Miami International Film Festival for her role in Somersault.
