American Gods - Emily Browning Cast as Laura Moon

Starz's American Gods has cast its Laura Moon.

A Series of Unfortunate Events alum Emily Browning will take on the role in the cabler's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's fantasy novel.

The drama centers on a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon (The 100's Ricky Whittle), is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a con man but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation for a battle with the new deities.

Browning's Laura Moon is Shadow Moon’s wife, who has been preparing for her husband's pending prison release. Little does she know that she will go on an unexpected journey that leads her to an epiphany about her relationship and affords her a second chance to get things right. She joins a cast that also includes Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday.
