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.
