Ella’s interest in drama started at Wesley and her student theatre credentials include: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, God, Oliver, The Crucible, West Side Story and this year’s Senior School play, Richard lll and says “I wouldn’t have known how much I enjoy acting without doing the Wesley productions”.

Ella reflects on her love of acting, “I love seeing what happens behind the scenes. There’s so much that goes into creating a work, seeing it all come together is very interesting. I love creating things so being part of a team to create a production is really fulfilling for me.”
