Ellie Bamber graces the cover of Rollacoster’s Autumn/Winter 2018 issue, available now to pre-order.

Here’s what the 21-year-old The Nutcracker and the Four Realms actress had to say…

On her favorite actresses: “Definitely Nicole Kidman. Moulin Rouge was one of those films that I watched as a kid and was like ‘Oh my god, that’s what I want to do.’ And I love Emma Stone, I think she’s a really amazing actress.”

On her upcoming Les Mis mini-series: “The funniest thing is that I was in the musical version of it at my school when I was younger. I really like re-imagining the classics and looking at all the different adaptation. With our version of Les Mis, it’s very much based on the book – which is wonderful because there’s so much detail in it. It’s 1500 pages!”

On her acting journey: “I think I can be very self-critical, for sure. I’ve still got tons to learn. But it makes me really, really excited, I think you can probably hear that. I don’t know much at all, so I’m looking forward to being challenged more and learning more from my peers and directors. I’m always ready. I just want to be as open to that as I can possibly be.”

E.T.A. Hoffman’s classic Nutcracker tale now has the full power of Disney behind it.

The latest, dazzling trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms brings us a world that’s more on par with Alice’s Wonderland and Narnia. It’s full of Sugar Plum Fairies, toy soldiers, ballerinas, a gang of mice, and one cackling baddie played by Helen Mirren.

The film, directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) and Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger), stars Mackenzie Foy (Interstellar) as Clara, the young girl who ventures into the realms her mother created in search of a key that will open a precious gift. Her godfather Drosselmeyer (Morgan Freeman) presents her a golden thread at an annual holiday party that leads her to said key, only it disappears inside a parallel world.

Now Clara must traverse the Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, Land of Sweets, and the Fourth Realm that holds the tyrant Mother Ginger (Mirren), who’s looking to rule all the realms herself.

Along the way, she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley) and a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight). Misty Copeland, the first African-American ballerina to land principal dancer status from the American Ballet Theatre, also appears as The Ballerina. The cast is rounded out by Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Miranda Hart, Sergei Polunin, Omid Djalili, Jack Whitehall, Meera Syal, and Ellie Bamber.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will open in theaters Nov. 2.
