STARZ DEBUTS FIRST LOOK AT EMILY BROWNING AS ESSIE MACGOWAN AHEAD OF THE PENULTIMATE EPISODE OF “AMERICAN GODS” SEASON 1 ON 6/11
In the below clip from Sunday’s episode, viewers get a first look at Essie Macgowan (Emily Browning).
Speaking to VARIETY, Bryan Fuller said, “Essie was one of Michael and I’s favorite stories in the book. It’s essentially the tale of how Mad Sweeney made it to America. And we were talking about casting that role, and as we were in that conversation, Michael said, ‘Oh, we should just cast Emily in this role.’ And then we went to talk to Emily, and it was like, ‘So, the Essie episode’ — she was like, ‘Have you cast that actor yet? Because I think I should play her.’ And we were like, ‘Well, that just worked out well.’”
