VIDEO: betty meets Ella Purnell

Ella Purnell is 20 years old and has already acted alongside megastars like Keira Knightley, Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie and Eva Green. Now she’s playing Emma Bloom – a mysterious girl with the power to manipulate air – in new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which is out in cinemas tomorrow.

We were lucky enough to get some time to chat to Ella and immediately all fell in love with her. She did an excellent impression of a duck and talked to us about the amazing shoes she wore on set, her favourite day of filming, and the Barbie glasses which made her burst into tears. Watch and enjoy.
