Purple Reign: Ella Purnell in Vanity Fair On Jewellery

Jul 6, 2018       Category: Photoshoots ,Press       Comments: 0

At 22, she’s well on her way to conquering the world (something Chanel has been quick to cotton on to). Meet Ella Purnell, heir apparent to the silver screen.

It’s impossible to be star-struck by Ella Purnell. The London-born actress and musician, 22, is just too tiny and sweet to be intimidating (although given her acting chops, she could probably be terrifying if she tried). What isn’t possible, however, is failing to be completely in awe of her beauty. The girl is utterly, effortlessly, otherworldly exquisite. She quite literally can’t pull an ugly face.

Here, the Chanel ambassador dons pieces from the new high jewellery collection Coromandel, inspired by the lacquered Chinese screens Coco Chanel took with her wherever she lived. Birds in flight, as traditionally detailed on coromandel screens, are picked out in diamonds, their outlines realized through the ingeniously detailed spaces between settings. The iconic floral motif of the camellia Chanel so loved appears in mother of pearl, black lacquer, and cultured pearls, while landscapes are replicated with vibrant green and blue lacquered rivers, floating mother-of-pearl clouds, and scintillating diamond backgrounds.

“I feel so glamorous in Chanel,” says Purnell, who has, for obvious reasons, played younger versions of serious beauties Angelina Jolie and Keira Knightley, but is now old enough to hold her own as a screen siren. “I love a big statement hoop, and the only diamonds I have are a pair my grandmother gave me which I wear for special occasions, so this is a serious treat.”

We’ll see her next in TV series Sweetbitter (which is already receiving critical acclaim on the other side of the Atlantic) as Tess, a naïve out-of-towner who ups sticks to New York City. Described as a sort of foodie Sex and the City meets Kitchen Confidential, it’s the sort of role which guarantees a new kind of fame for the hyper-talented beauty—one that is more than deserved.

‘Sweetbitter’ Actress Ella Purnell on Transition From Child to Adult Roles

Jun 21, 2018       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

British actress Ella Purnell landed her first-ever television role as the lead in Starz series “Sweetbitter,” based on the novel of the same name. Purnell, who appeared in her first film at age 12, says she feels like her career “snowballed” overnight.

How do you select projects?

Being in this weird transition [from] child to adult in the last two years has changed the way I view roles. I have a responsibility to young women to represent them the way they should be and to represent humans and real relationships. I will no longer take anything that is damaging to society or a specific group of people.

What’s it like auditioning for roles in America?

I do self-taping from home. … I’m conscious about the amount of time I spend away from home. I have three younger brothers, and I love them to bits. I want to have a good relationship with them and my friends. It’s hard when your life is in London but your passion is abroad.

Would you like to tackle a singing role?

I’d love stuff that incorporates singing, but I’m not on the lookout for it. I also want to do something where I have to pick up a skill, sport, or an instrument. I love learning new things, and I especially love doing [projects] based on books or true-life stories because you get more context and you get to dig in. … I love delving into [a] world. Anything where I can do loads of homework is the best.

There have been more female coming-of-age stories recently like “Sweetbitter.” What are your favorites?

I’m only drawn to things with female protagonists. “Lady Bird,” I love. “I, Tonya” blew me away. There’s not that much out there. Everything seems to be about love when it comes to coming of age, and it’s not. There’s so much of it [that involves] your mom. A girl and her mom or a girl and her dad — their relationship is special. Leaving home, … realizing that you’re an adult and you’re breaking authority, or learning how to trust yourself rather than [being] the adaptive child who does what she’s told; that’s much more of an interesting story to watch.

Ella Purnell for Flaunt Magazine

May 18, 2018       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Videos       Comments: 0

There’s the nondescript businessmen in button-downs discussing their clients, the hungover rockers chaining their Parliaments, socialites sipping on sugary drinks while they check their Instagram feeds on their phones. Just another Wednesday at the Chateau Marmont. My own cell buzzes, jolting me out of my reverie: Hi Tori it’s Ella. So sorry, running 5 mins late, underestimated LA traffic!! X. The actress may have the acting chops to make it in Hollywood, but she’s imported a quintessential British politeness alongside that sets her apart from the typical Chateau demo.

As promised, she arrives five minutes later, wearing a breezy button- down dress, her hair in a wispy updo. She extends her hand, complete with bubblegum pink nails, polish chipped at the corners, and apologizes again for her on-time-by-LA-standards arrival. We head inside since she only packed for sunshine: “Is February always really cold and windy, or is it just now that Trump is in town?” she says with a smile.

Since her first major role in 2010’s Never Let Me Go, Purnell has risen through the ranks by nailing a certain type—usually a precocious teenager or strong-willed heroine facing larger-than-life challenges. But as she’s matured, so have the parts that are coming her way. She’s now exploring the world of television for the first time with her most adult role to date. In Sweetbitter, Purnell is cast as Tess, a struggling New York waitress who is developing a palate for fine wining and dining and sensual trysts. Although Tess’s life may seem lavish, it is far from it—the first episodes find her living paycheck to paycheck, trying to find her calling.

Purnell says that it’s been her most natural role yet. “I do not have to act on the show,” she tells me. “I am Tess.” For someone who has flourished by playing characters in extraordinary, sometimes fantastic situations, Tess may seem like a surprising choice. However, the realistic way in which Tess’s life is depicted on the show was exactly what drew Purnell to the role: “This thing came through my email, and I think the first line said, ‘Tess’s life is in shambles.’ I was like, dude, me too!” Although the actress may seem to have a clear path ahead of her, she, like many of us, is still figuring things out as she goes. “I’m 21 and I have no idea what I’m doing or who I am. Everybody sort of looks like they have their life together on the outside, but nobody really does. Everybody has that ten-percent of them that wants to get a dog, move to Fiji, and open up a bar.”

Ella Purnell grows up in ‘Sweetbitter’

May 7, 2018       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

After early roles as a child in films like Never Let Me Go and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ella Purnell is ready to turn her acting, once considered just a hobby, into a full-fledged career. For her, this move comes in the form of the lead role in the new Starz series Sweetbitter, a New York-centric show that fills the void viewers may have been feeling since the wrapping of Sex and the City or Girls. Tess, an instant heroine, is a character with which many of this city’s imports will be able to closely identify, a young woman who has moved to New York with only a few bags and no clear direction.

The show, which premiered last night, follows the same premise as Stephanie Danler’s best-selling novel, which made a major splash upon its release in 2016. Sweetbitter was inspired by her own experiences working at Union Square Cafe, opening restaurants, and running beverage programs at various New York institutions before pursuing an MFA in creative writing at Parsons. Danler’s Tess is on an unlikely hero’s journey, leaving behind a life in Ohio for the unknowns of New York. She is unapologetically lost, finding herself thrown into training at one of Manhattan’s best restaurants. Through Tess’s eyes, we experience the grit of the food industry, the loneliness of a girl on her own in the city, and 2006 pre-gentrification Williamsburg. It’s a coming-of-age story where the outcome is not a fairytale—but rather shows the vulnerability of real life and the pains of hard work.

Like her character, Purnell is excitable and wide-eyed, relishing this role as one of her first forays into television. Over the phone, the 21-year-old actress has an authentic and humbling energy. “If I’ve learned anything, it’s that you always have to bring flat shoes to a party,” she jokes. She is no stranger to acting, having grown up onstage and onscreen with roles in Maleficent and, more recently, in Churchill and Amazon’s coming Agatha Christie adaptation Ordeal by Innocence. Born and raised in London, she is quick to point out that her family was not in the business. “My mom is a yoga teacher and my dad does something that requires him to wear a suit,” she laughs.

On the Journey With Ella Purnell (WWD)

May 4, 2018       Category: Photoshoots ,Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

The lead character in the Starz take on the hit book “Sweetbitter” talks about how playing Tess helped her come to terms with her own career trajectory.

Ella Purnell couldn’t help herself: she needed a Lenny Kravitz sighting.

In town for the premiere of her new Starz show, “Sweetbitter,” Purnell had gone along to the annual Tribeca Film Festival dinner Chanel throws, and while waiting for the bathroom downstairs at Balthazar, had caught a glimpse of the night’s surprise guest. So there she stationed herself in a leather chair, making for one of the night’s cutest photo ops.

Seeing Mr. Kravitz in the flesh had made all the difference.

“Usually those events are kind of scary, but there was a nice vibe last night,” she says the following afternoon, from a bar stool at the Bowery Hotel’s restaurant, Gemma.

The English actress (whose contract with Chanel likely makes such events all the more appealing) is slowly adjusting to the spotlight, though she remains a rather introverted young woman who prefers a jazz bar to a nightclub and still gets homesick for East London, no matter how fabulous the Chanel parties might be.

All that is not unlike her “Sweetbitter” role, which premieres this Sunday. Purnell plays Tess, a recent transplant to New York whose coming-of-age is captured through her experience working in the fine-dining industry. The show is based on Stephanie Danler’s debut novel, which, published in 2016, was one of that summer’s most popular books.

Ella Purnell for The Wrap

‘Sweetbitter’ Star Ella Purnell Went to Restaurant Boot Camp for Coming-of-Age Series

Actress learned everything from the dreaded three-plate carry to the proper way to pour wine

It’s a lot more difficult working in a restaurant than it looks — even if you’re acting as a server.

British actress Ella Purnell stars as Tess, a young woman who moves from Ohio to New York City after college. And like many recent grads with big ideas and small budgets, she gets a job as a server at a trendy New York restaurant. Actually, she has to train a while before she can be a real server, and she starts out as a back waiter.

To prepare for the role, Purnell went through two weeks of “boot camp” to learn all about fine dining.

“We had two weeks of, like, boot camp, where we learned how to serve, basically,” Purnell told TheWrap in a recent interview.

“It went from everything from like how to fold napkins to and how to lay a table from opening a bottle of wine, pouring it correctly, how to do a three-plate carry, the correct way to serve,” Purnell explained. They even had a front of house consultant.

“You become physically, like, so tired,” Purnell said. “Those plates are heavy. Your back, your shoulders, your arms.”

“Sweetbitter” is based on Stephanie Danler’s novel of the same name, and readers of the book will know this sounds a lot like Tess’ experience.

“I felt like I was going through this with Tess,” Purnell said.
