Ella Purnell Calls Tim Burton 'A Genius' Ahead of 'Miss Peregrine' Debut

Ella Purnell keeps it comfy in a pair of overalls in this shot from her Paper Magazine feature.

The 20-year-old actress stars in the new film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, based on Ransom Riggs‘ book of the same name. Check out what she had to share in the feature:

On working with Tim Burton: “He’s a genius. He’s an easy, beautiful and kind soul. He’s so smart and open to everything: your interpretation, views and opinions. With his talent and level of fame, he doesn’t have to be that way. But he is so wonderful and humble. He would always give me great scene advice like, ‘Don’t let your sentences tail off.’ I appreciated that.”

On her favorite era: “I love the ’90s! I love everything about it! There is something so beautiful about the grunge and carelessness. The style, the mood, the music, the fashion. Kate Moss, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp in their prime!”

Earlier this week, Ella joined co-stars Eva Green and Asa Butterfield on Good Morning America to chat about the movie, out on Friday, September 30th.
