Abbie Cornish (born 7 August 1982) is an Australian actress and rapper known for her film and television roles, particularly her award-winning lead performance 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 raps under the stage name Dusk.
Cornish was born in Lochinvar, New South Wales, as the second of five children of Shelley and Barry Cornish. Her sister, Isabelle Cornish, is also an actress. She grew up on a 70-hectare (170-acre) farm before moving to Melbourne, Victoria. Fascinated by independent and foreign films, Cornish skipped Year 8 in high school.
Having grown up with animals, she became vegetarian at the age of 13. In 2006 she became an ambassador for Australian animal rights group Voiceless, The Animal Protection Institute and has since been an outspoken advocate for animal protection, taking interviews and supporting Voiceless through her attendance at various events. When Voiceless launched a national advertising campaign in 2012, she offered a heartfelt introduction to one of their commercials.
