WONDERLAND – Rapidly-rising actress Ellie Bamber is winning on both stage and screen. After appearing in Carol Morley’s dreamy 2014 mystery The Falling, Bamber was snapped up to play Dinah in musical High Society at London’s Old Vic. Next up, she stars as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Lydia Bennet. London’s Bamber is an airtight fit for the role of a reckless Victorian teenager. “Lydia’s this cheeky, flirty girl,” she explains whilst sat like a young Lady of the Manor, fluent only in niceties.

“When I started acting, I thought I was going to be Wednesday Addams,” she laughs, combing auburn hair strands through her fingers. “If they ever do the remake [of The Addams Family], I will personally dye my hair and go into the audition.” Until then, her “Mumager” is on hand, monitoring her growing fan sites (she’s very popular in Russia), black hair dye at the ready.

SCREENDAILY – Berkshire-born Bamber, 18, took to the principal role of Dinah like a duck to water, singing, dancing and having the time of her life.

Her film debut comes next February with the release of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, in which she plays troublesome Lydia, another peachy part.

After signing with Kevin Volchok at UTA in Los Angeles, her next role is in the Tom Ford-directed Nocturnal Animals playing the daughter of Jake Gyllenhaal (the film, currently shooting, is based on the novel Tony & Susan by Austin Wright).

While still at school, Bamber was spotted in a local play and eventually offered a part in the 2010 production of Aspects Of Love at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory theatre.

“I was 13, coming up to the West End, the only kid without an agent,” she recalls, “but my whole family got behind me.”

She did her GCSEs and AS levels, but decided that “I need to go with the parts”. Bamber is learning on set, she says, from the likes of Lily James on Pride And Prejudice And Zombies and Kate Fleetwood in High Society. “Everyone’s been so generous,” she says. “I just want to keep doing what I’m doing.”
