Our Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW) this week, Ella Purnell, may be early in her acting career but she’s definitely making waves.
If you haven’t watched the trailer for the upcoming Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, then you should. It’s right here. I’ll wait.
All set? Great! Now you are familiar with Ella Purnell! She stars as Emma Bloom, the young woman who guides Jacob to Miss Peregrine’s home. In the novel, Emma has control over fire, however, in the film it appears her peculiarity is air. Either way, this young woman is making her mark and is someone we should be paying attention to.
Sharing the screen with an artist the caliber of Eva Green in Miss Peregine would, I’d imagine, be incredibly intimidating to a young actor. However, this isn’t Ella’s first turn with a mega star.
That’s right – she’s also stood her own next to Angelina Jolie playing a young Malificent in the film of the same name.
She also appeared with in Kick Ass 2 as the high school mean girl and antagonist to Chloe Grace Moretz’s character.
Ella may not have the screen time of some of our former WCWs, but she’s proving herself to be far beyond the typical young ingénue. She’s a beautiful woman who is developing the acting chops to match.
See Ella in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children when it hits theaters September 30, 2016.
