Ellie Bamber – the talented young actress who memorably sang Father Dear Father at the Players’ 75th anniversary show, was featured in this week’s Evening Standard:
Rising star Ellie Bamber is to make her Donmar Theatre debut in Ibsen’s The Lady From The Sea.
The actress and model, 20, says the role will be a relief after a “crazy” few months jetting around the world as an ambassador for Chanel.
Bamber said taking the part was “not the easy choice” but felt like “the right thing to do”.
She joins a cast including Nikki Amuka-Bird who will be working with director Kwame Kwei-Armah at the Covent Garden venue. Bamber said: “I feel like theatre is where I learn and I can learn from Kwame and Nikki and the rest of the cast.”
