Ella Sawyers was an actor, writer, director and model in the UK for 10 years. She successfully performed Sanrizz’s “The Alternative Hairshow” for 5 consecutive years at The Royal Albert Hall up until 2016. She also toured the country and across Europe in large scale venues for Sanrizz.
Ella is a fan of classic texts, having familiarised herself very well with Shakespeare for “A Winter’s Tale” (2016), “The Tempest” (2016) and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (2015) as well as Chekhov’s “The Seagull” (2010). Similarly, she traveled back into the time of the Regency period for “Pride & Prejudice” and performed across UK and Ireland respectively.
Children’s theatre was also Ellia’s forte, having captured thousands of children’s hearts with her beloved portrayal of Princess Elsa in the singalong “Frozen” (2015). She was also a puppeteer in “Talking Objects” (2016) and Lucy in “Jack & the Beanstalk” (2015).
However one of the most rewarding highlights was being able to travel to Uganda and work with a charity, building and teaching in schools during the summers of 2009 and 2010. Ella ran Ugandan Drama Club for children for 2 weeks, in which time she wrote and directed a play for school.
Ellia’s decision to move to Australia and its greener, more sunny pastures in 2016 was made in the name of both love and career—a potent combination. Now she is looking forward to an equally successful footprint.
