AGE: 19. HOMETOWN: East London, “Near Canary Wharf, a neighborhood called Isle of Dogs.” UP NEXT: Tim Burton’s adaptation of Ransom Riggs’s novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; Access All Areas; The Journey Is the Destination.

JOHN ORTVED: How did you get discovered?

ELLA PURNELL: I did a bit of baby modeling. I loved it. At 9, I started taking classes at Sylvia Young Theatre School. One day they asked if I wanted to join their agency. You get in if you’re cute, I guess. When I was 11, I did Oliver! in the West End. I’m desperate to get back into theater; that’s my true passion. Cheesy musicals.

ORTVED: What’s it like working with Tim Burton?

PURNELL: We had a discussion before my audition. He asked questions: “What do you see Emma doing and saying and feeling?” It felt like a collaboration. In all the big scenes, he’d ask, “What do you think?” The kids love him. He’s like the Pied Piper.

ORTVED: Do you see yourself moving toward theater and musicals?

PURNELL: I hope. What I’m trying to do now is learn and improve and grow as a person. What I use when I’m acting comes from what I learn about myself. I didn’t go to drama school. I need to become a better actor before I go onstage. It’s harder to fake it onstage than onscreen.

ORTVED: What’s your peculiarity?

PURNELL: I can’t fly. I’m not full of beans. I can make an awesome duck noise. I do great animal impressions. [imitates a duck quack]

ORTVED: What are you reading?

PURNELL: The Girl Who Played With Fire. I think it’s really hard for filmmakers to adapt books. For Miss Peregrine, my character is different; she even has a different peculiarity than in the book. When people realized, I put out a statement: “Just trust me on this one.”

ORTVED: You grew up with siblings?

PURNELL: I have three younger brothers. Try doing puberty when you have three little brothers telling you how spotty and gross and disgusting you are.

We have finally added HQ V Magazine scans from the Summer 2014 Issue where Ella was photographed by Ben Weller to the image gallery …

“There’s a joke in my family that I’m going to make a career out of playing other people’s younger selves” jokes 17-year-old actress Ella Purnell. “I played the younger Keira Knightley), now I’m playing the younger Angelia. I mean, its a good track record, right?” The London native is making light of being cast by executive producer and lead actress Angelina Jolie in this season’s brooding Disney blockbuster Maleficent. Though the two have never met, Jolie hand picked the fashion-adoring actress during the film’s reshoot stage. Purnell, who had originally auditioned for the role of Princess Aurora (which eventually went to Elle Fanning), was not expecting the call, finding out about her appointment while recovering from a hospital stay for appendicitis. “I was sitting at home with greasy hair, with like operation stuff, half conscious, coming off annestetics, ” she says. Soon she was flying harnessed, with layers of bandaged covering her fresh scars. It was just another droll moment in a young, adventure-filled career that includes a narrowly missed bear attack in 2013’s Wildlike and throwing up on cue for Kick-Ass 2. “I don’t know if you’ve ever projectile vomited on someone’s face, but it’s really satisfying” she says.

In between directing a school play, working two jobs, and acting, the eldest daughter of four, like her Hollywood counterpart, spends time considering cinema through the lense of social progress. “I want to be a part of a movie that changes people’s conceptual framework and suddenly you see things in a different way,” she says. Perhaps that could be a good talking point when she finally meets her maker, at the Maleficent premiere. “I’ll meet Angelina and be like, “Hi, I;m you” That will be a good conversation starter.”

We have added the scan of Ella in GQ Magazine’s April 2014 issue (out now!)

At only 17-years-old, Ella Purnell has already had some pretty memorable experiences during her film career: after being cast opposite Kiera Knightley in Never Let Me Go, she went on to act with Clive Owen in The Intruders and this summer you’ll see her as the young Angelina Jolie in Disney’s Maleficent. However nothing has been quite as memorable so far as practicing the ‘sick rig’ for her turn in Kick Ass 2 (if you’ve seen the film, you know the bit we’re talking about).

“You can only really shoot a throw up scene of that scale once as it’s a nightmare to reset!” Purnell laughs. “So I’d say projectile vomiting in a playground in front of 20 people covered head to toe in a plastic bin bag is probably one of my weirder experiences.”
