Interview: Ellie Bamber’s career has put a “strain” on her relationships

Interview: Ellie Bamber’s career has put a “strain” on her relationships

The 21-year-old actress – who is dating ‘Bodyguard’ actor Richard Madden – spent six weeks away in Brazil shooting ‘The Seven Sorrows of Mary’ and admitted her absence can be tough on her loved ones, but things are always fine again once they get chance to reconnect.

In an interview with the new issue of Red magazine, she said: ‘Being away puts a strain on family and friends, but my best friends came [to the ‘Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ premiere] and, even though I hadn’t seen some of them in ages, we just picked up where we left off.’

But despite being away from her loved ones a lot, Ellie always gets to spend a lot of time with her mother, as she’s also her manager.

She added: ‘It means we make time to see each other and she’s always got my back.’

Meanwhile, the ‘Nocturnal Animals’ actress doesn’t feel particularly famous but revealed there are aspects of being in the public eye that she finds tough.

She said: ‘[The hardest thing was] moving away from my friends and family… walking to the chip shop on a Sunday with a hangover, that’s not so good.’

‘I don’t acknowledge it, I don’t really feel I am famous in any way.’

Boyfriend Richard starred in ‘Bodyguard’ – one of the year’s biggest TV shows – and he and Ellie enjoyed watching it back together.

She admitted: ‘We watched it together at his house.’

Despite a very successful year herself, the ‘Les Miserables’ actress feels she is still “learning”.

She said: ‘I’m still finding my way, so it can be hard. I’m still growing, still learning, still changing.’

INTERVIEW: Harper’s Bazaar UK “Ellie Bamber, star of The Nutcracker, stands up for the Disney princess”

INTERVIEW: Harper’s Bazaar UK “Ellie Bamber, star of The Nutcracker, stands up for the Disney princess”

Harper’s Bazaar UK: Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella: it’s fair to say the traditional Disney princess has come under scrutiny of late.

The notion of a damsel in distress saved only by a man is enough to make the modern woman uncomfortable with the fairytales they read – and accepted, often without question – as children.

Over the past few years, Disney stories have changed with the times, with a rise in strong female characters – thanks to , and a slow move towards more diverse princesses such as Moana and The Princess and The Frog’s Tiana.There was also the #DreamBigPrincess initiative in 2016.

One of Disney’s latest offerings is another modern spin of a classic tale: The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The all-star cast includes Bazaar cover star Keira Knightley, who takes on the iconic role of the Sugar Plum Fairy alongside Dame Helen Mirren, ballerina Misty Copeland, Jack Whitehall and Ellie Bamber.

For Bamber – who spoke to Harper’s Bazaar ahead of the film’s release and straight after a dress fitting for the London premiere – the movie comes with a plethora of strong female characters to complement this new wave of modern game-changing female Disney leads.

However, while the 21-year-old welcomes this new wave of princesses, she can’t quite bring herself to completely oppose the traditional fairytale role.

“I mean, I think it’s about time really [to have these powerful Disney female leads] but, having said that, I still love Cinderella,” she says. “There is something about that film and about all of the other fairytales that is magical.

“But, in this day and age, it is really important to have strong female characters and there is certainly that in The Nutcracker. So I think it’s about time and [it’s great] to be reimagining the story in this way which is so truthful and also so wonderful for young girls to have role models.”

While Bamber would have liked these new strong female characters to look up to as a child, she wasn’t short of them herself.

“I had two very strong and powerful women in my life,” she says, referring to her mother and grandmother. “So, they were the fairytale I had.”
