Ellie Bamber, 20, Actor
Whether in historical comedy horror Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals, chances are you’ve seen Ellie Bamber on the silver screen. The British actress, who started off in theater acting before transitioning to film, is currently working on a new and decidedly less gory project called Taipei, which is based off of the romantic novel of the same name by Tao Lin. “It’s about a modern relationship and how the digital world and substances contribute to its growth,” explains Ellie, who traveled to Brooklyn and Taipei to shoot the film. “I hope it reminds viewers of a time before social media when there wasn’t always a third person in a relationship,” she continues. “I hope it reminds them of traditional romances where a connection is made through spending time together without the need of electronics and other substances. And that it stresses to women that you don’t need to be tied down by a man and can pursue a career on your own terms.”
Ellie Bamber was interviewed by Lucy Webb at this year’s education festival! The festival took place last month at Ellie’s old school, at Wellington College in Crowthorne, Berkshire.
