In 2011 she made her acting debut in the feature film SUMMER OUTSIDE (OT: DRAUSSEN IST SOMMER) directed by Friederike Jehn. This experience was the catalyst for Ella to pursue her career as an actress and study acting in London. However, before she began her studies, she was cast in the role of Ali in the multi-award winning feature film KRIEG (CHRIEG) by Simon Jaquemet and was nominated for the Swiss Film Award in the category “Best Supporting Actress”. Other leading roles followed in films such as TIGER GIRL by Jakob Lass and RAW by Julia Ducournau, as well as the series FREUD, SUCCESSION and TOKYO VICE, directed by Michael Mann, among others.
