Just a day after we reported Emily Browning had joined the cast of  “God Help The Girl” from Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Mudorch,  Bleeding Cool are back with the first set picture. Caught on location on Buchanan Street in Glasgow, the picture shows Browning during what looks to be mid-song.

There was a long and exhaustive search for the leads, which we thought hadRead More
