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.
