HOMETOWN: Crowthorne, England
Ellie captured Hollywood’s attention with her breakout role as Lydia Bennet in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Her next big gig is equally creepy: In the inimitable fashion designer turned writer and director Tom Ford’s latest movie, the dark thriller Nocturnal Animals, she plays a Texas teenager whose parents are portrayed by Isla Fisher and Jake Gyllenhaal. “Working with Tom was an incredible experience,” Ellie says. “He has this extraordinary vision and eye for detail — everything he creates is very precise. I like to think of myself as a sponge on set, constantly learning and soaking up advice.”
When Ellie’s not in front of the camera, she can often be found in the kitchen. “I love to cook. Sometimes I’ll just hang out with my friends and make them katsu curry!” she says. In fact, Ellie will go to great lengths for the perfect food — for better or worse: “I once scaled a cliff to buy a strawberry and chocolate milk shake, only to find out the place had stopped making them.” —H.H.
Ellie continues to promote her newest film at last night’s premiere of ‘Nocturnal Animals’ during Toronto Film Festival.

How the fashion elite fell for Britain’s new film star
She’s only 19, but the British actress Ellie Bamber has already caught the eye of Karl Lagerfeld. Up next? A role in Tom Ford’s new film. Meet a rapidly rising star
“The first thing was, like, what the hell do I wear?” shrieks the 19-year-old British actress Ellie Bamber, recalling the moment she was summoned to meet the fashion designer turned director Tom Ford. After sending in a lo-fi audition tape for a part in his much-hyped new film, Nocturnal Animals, out in November, Bamber suddenly found herself in Ford’s pristine Pimlico offices. “They have scented candles, all of the ladies wear stilettos, everyone is graceful,” she says of the HQ. “I wore these flared Paige jeans, little clogs and a white shirt. I thought, go clean, go simple.”
