From Ella with Love – SBJCT Journal

Jul 25, 2019       Category: Photoshoots ,Press       Comments: 0

FINDING ELLA. Today’s SBJCT GIRL fills us in on the quest for inspiration, staying present, not having a five year plan, and why we all need to be seen. Oh, and why pockets are important. Shot here exclusively in CHANEL by SBJCT’s newest photographic muse HELENA CHRISTENSEN, get to know Ella Purnell.

Hello dear Ella. It’s clear from this photo shoot that you are clearly Helena Christensen’s long lost daughter. Glad to have reunited you! Tell me a little bit about your beginnings, how you got to HERE. Where are you from? How did you get started in acting?

Hah! Now there’s a compliment!! I’m honoured! I guess it all happened very organically. I was born and raised in East London, UK. I was a very creative kid. Always acting, singing, or dancing. I loved reading, making things, writing my own books, and playing piano. I did a German commercial for the sweet ‘Toffifee’ when I was 9, and then my first film when I was 12. It all sort of snowballed from there really. Balancing school and work became the norm. I hit 18 and went travelling for a few months, which helped me figure out some stuff as I made that awkward transition from child actor to working adult. I started becoming more passionate about the creative process behind my work. I started becoming more selective about my roles. And I started developing interests outside of acting; music, poetry, mental wellbeing, travel, feminism, writing, fashion. I took some time off. I jumped back in. And here we are, 2019!

Sweetbitter’s Ella Purnell Tells Us the 5 Pieces British Girls Love for Summer

Before I landed my dream job at Who What Wear nine years ago, I worked as a waitress at a fancy establishment in my hometown, a personal fact I contribute to the immediate kinship I feel with actress Ella Purnell upon speaking with her. To be fair, Purnell is not actually a waitress, though she does play one on the Starz series Sweetbitter, a role that allows us to bond for a full 10 minutes over the “mental” restaurant industry; the long hours, the romantic relationships that inevitably form, and of course, the drama. We LOVE the drama.

My phone call with Purnell takes place days after she wrapped a whirlwind NYC press trip (and this shoot!) for the second season of Sweetbitter, which premiered last Sunday. She is back in her hometown of London working on her next project, the corset drama Belgravia, which is set for 2020. It’s been nonstop for the actress, but despite the fact that it’s 10 p.m. her time and she is just getting home from a long day of filming, I’m greeted with a cheerful tone on the other end of the line. We dive straight into the important topics: fashion, career, and Sweetbitter and Tess, a character whose personal growth experiences on the show are coincidentally mirroring Purnell’s own. “It’s kind of funny how those things work out,” she tells me of the similarities between herself and her on-screen counterpart. This may be the year Tess happens to life, as Purnell puts it, but it’s also the year Purnell happens to life, revealing it’s been one full of intriguing career firsts. Oh, what a thrilling time to be the 22-year-old.

Keep reading for my full conversation with the actress, where we discuss the exciting next chapter of Sweetbitter, getting her fashion education from Chanel, and the British-girl summer wardrobe.

Sweetbitter season two! What can we expect from this next chapter of the series and from Tess?

I always like to think of it as season one, life happens to Tess. She is a completely blank slate, you know nothing about this character, and you meet her and learn with her. It’s kind of like an introduction to what is going to happen. Season two is where we really get into everything. So season one is life happens to Tess, and season two is Tess happens to life. We delve into all kinds of themes that transcend time and generations and really get to know all of the characters’ backgrounds and storylines and vulnerabilities. For Tess, it’s about power; it’s about finding her voice, and she goes from being curious about life to voracious about experiencing. She learns what she likes, what she wants, what she deserves, and she learns how to ask for it, which I think is a really important thing for anyone. There comes a time in everyone’s life where they have to decide who they want to be and what kind of person they want to be, but I think especially that is a really important thing for women, to stand up for yourself and say you know what, I do deserve that promotion, I do deserve that pay raise. It’s been really fun to actually experience that in my own life while playing it. It’s kind of funny how those things work out.

IntoTheGloss – Ella Purnell, Actress

Jul 18, 2019       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

“Every child actor has to go through the transition to adult actor. I was 11 when I got Never Let Me Go—I grew up pretty fast. As tempting as it is to just keep working, if you want to make the transition in a healthy, constructive way, it is important to step out. I had gotten to the point where I was not getting the kinds of scripts I wanted—it was the girlfriend of the main guy, or the one who was just there to be objectified—so I took some time off to recalibrate.

It was only eight months, but it was the longest I’d gone without working since I was 10. Then I got Sweetbitter, and I fell in love with acting again. Not to be cheesy, but it completely changed my life—I moved from East London, where I had lived my whole life, to New York. Everything just flipped. Obviously I had a lot of acting experience, but I had grown up doing films—the whole industry of TV is new to me. The show could get picked up, it could not, you don’t get the script until the day before it shoots… It’s a completely different job.

In the show, Tess is thrown into this restaurant industry and she has no idea what’s happening, and I was like that with TV, just trying to stay afloat.I ended up learning with her. A cliche, but life does imitate art. It’s funny how that happens, right?

‘Sweetbitter’ Star Ella Purnell Takes On The Bustle Booth

Jul 18, 2019       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

When celebrities hang out with Bustle writers, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, Sweetbitter star Ella Purnell is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.

“I no longer just eat because I’m hungry,” says Ella Purnell. “I eat as an experience.” Playing the server Tess on Sweetbitter has “100 percent flipped” her relationship with food and dining out. Like her character, she’s taking it in and applying it to her life outside of work. “I know how to pair wines, kind of! You drink to experience the flavors, the aromas, the complexities, the layers that go behind a fine. I appreciate that culture now.”

“I used to watch people swirling their wine and be like, idiots, they don’t know what they’re talking about,” Purnell laughs. “Now I’m that guy that’s like ‘hmmm, olives on the nose!'” It’s an art form, she says, after all. “It sounds really pretentious, but it’s kind of true.”

Purnell has played Tess for two seasons now — but for the majority of Season 1, we didn’t know her name. As in Stephanie Danler’s book that the show is based on, Tess is introduced as a blank slate and referred to only by nicknames like “little one” and “baby monster” as she settles into New York City and starts to figure out who she is.

She’s not a blank slate anymore. “Season 2 is my preferred season actually, don’t tell anyone, because it’s all about power,” Purnell laughs. “[Tess] goes from being curious and wanting to experience everything and learn things and find out who she is to becoming voracious and achieving her power.” “Life happened to Tess” in Season 1, Purnell says. “But in Season 2, Tess happens to life.”

For juicer hints about Sweetbitter Season 2 and Purnell’s Disney channel favorites (not everything’s the high brow art of fine dining), check out HER answers to our Bustle Booth below.

Actress Ella Purnell takes to the front of the Summer 19 issue in Chanel.

The precocious actor wears Chanel in this latest cover shoot, taken from our Summer Issue.

Echoing an icon, CHANEL 19 was dropped this year, mirroring the creation of the 2.55 bag in February 1955.

Making its debut on the AW19 runway, Karl Lagerfeld and Virginie Viard’s creation, the CHANEL 19 bag, was named in honour of the House’s most beloved bag, the eternal 2.55. The rectangular flap bag available in three sizes is synonymous with easy chic, exemplified here by certified Chanel girl, Ella Purnell, and fastens with the signature double C (what else?)

Taking on the colours of AW19 collection, the CHANEL 19 comes in black, beige and white leather, as well as statement shades of turquoise, green, deep red and dark pink. Tweed on the other hand — it wouldn’t be Chanel without a little tweed — takes eight different forms.

With adjustable chain link handles for when you’re feeling #exec, and a belt-bag option for when you’re feeling free and only want to carry your card and keys, it’s a truly universal model. Or at least, that’s what we’re telling ourselves while saving up for two. Excessive? Worth it.
