Ella Greenwood [Interview]


Hello Folks! We have an absolutely wonderful interview to share with you all with an absolutely wonderful star on the rise. It’s Ella Greenwood! Ella has some pretty amazing projects coming up that I am certain you are all going to love, including a very original and seemingly compelling retelling of Sherlock Holmes, the direction and likes of which I have never heard of before. It’s called Moriarty, and I am so excited for it to be out in the world. Ella is also making a splash in one of our favorite genres, the world of horror. She can be seen in the brilliant new short film Before Nightfall that is also sure to be fantastic. And there is so much more, and we will discuss more in the amazing answers she has given below.

So Folks, please enjoy some wonderful words from the great Ella Greenwood, who we are so excited to have grace our digital pages here today! Enjoy!




What inspired you to get into the world of performance? Was it an early aspiration you have had since a youth, or did you just sort of land in this world one day?

I’ve always loved watching movies and TV shows. The idea of getting to become loads of different characters in different settings and situations meant that performance was always what I aspired to do.


I am very intrigued by a project you will be appearing in entitled Moriarty. Can you tell us a bit about this project? And what drew you to the story?

It’s a modern retelling of the classic Sherlock Holmes story with many other characters involved. I was drawn to the story as the character of Holmes in the series is a female which is really exciting.


And we are HUGE fans of the world of horror around here at TWS. We actually dedicate an entire month to it! With that being said, I understand you will be appearing in Before Nightfall that is also very intriguing. Again, could you tell us a bit about it? And what drew you to the story? And how was it working on a horror project? Is there anything that sets working in this genre apart from others you have worked on?

Before Nightfall is a thriller that takes place during the 17th Century. It follows a young girl who lives in a village that is being terrorised by The Beast of Godwick. I really loved the setting, the braveness of my character and just the whole story. Working on a horror was so much fun, and it’s actually not that different to working on other genres of films except there’s usually a bit more running involved!


If you were given the opportunity to portray any well known figured in world history, who would it be?

I should probably say someone like an inventor or explorer but I’ve always loved Tinkerbell and would really love to portray her at some point. I’m pretty small and used to watch the Tinkerbell movie on repeat when I was younger so I think I could play her quite well. Who wouldn’t want to go to Neverland!



You have worked in several forms of performance thus far, from the stage to audiobooks to film and television alike. So far, what would you say is your favorite method to perform within? If you were destined to only do one, which would it be?

I would say my favourite method to perform within is theatre as it gives you such a rush and it’s nice to get feedback straight after you’ve performed and to share your work with many people. If I only had to do one, I’d definitely choose films, as they give you the chance to become so many different characters in new settings and stories each time whereas with TV shows you’re more likely to be the same characters. I also love the whole experience of going to the cinema and having a break from reality and so I’d love to be a part of that.


What else does the future hold for you? Anything you would like to plug to our readers?

I’ve got some exciting things coming up including a new voice-over and film project. I’m also training with the National Youth Theatre soon. I really love creating stories and so I’m working on producing my own film as well!


What was the last thing that made you smile?

I met O-T Fagbenle yesterday who plays Luke in The Handmaid’s Tale and he was so lovely. It’s one of my favourite TV shows at the moment and so it definitely made me smile meeting such a talented actor.
