Skins star joins God Help The Girl

Original Skins cast member Hannah Murray has replaced Elle Fanning in Glasgow-based indie feature film God Help The Girl. 23 year old Hannah (represented by Troika) will play Cass the young outsider befriended by Eve and James.

24 year old Australian actress Emily Browning will play the lead role of Eve. The musical film revolves around Eve who has had a troubled past and a stay in hospital but gradually finds her feet as she lets Cass and James into her life.
Emily started acting at the age of 9 and her breakthrough role came at the age of 14 when she was cast as Violet Baudelaire in Lemony Snickets - A Series of Unfortunate Events. Last year she starred in Sucker Punch and Sleeping Beauty and she has a number of films in post-production including Summer in February alongside Dominic Cooper and Dan Stevens in which she plays the lead role of Florence Carter-Wood, and Magic Magic opposite Michael Cera.

Olly Alexander (represented by Curtis Brown) is still expected to play the role of James, as announced back in April.

God Help The Girl, which originally held an online casting call for the three main roles, is written and directed by Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch and is due to start shooting in Glasgow on the 16th July.
