Ella Rumpf was born in Paris in 1995 and got raised bilingual (German / French) in her hometown Zurich.
In 2011 Ella gave her feature debut in Friederike Jehns SUMMER OUTSIDE. That experience was groundbreaking for Ella and led her to the decision to study acting in London. Before that, she was cast for the role of Ali in Simon Jaquemet’s awarded feature film CHRIEG („War“) and got nominated 'best supporting actress‘ for the Swiss Film Award. Most recently Ella was starring in the German feature TIGER GIRL by Jakob Lass as well as in GRAVE (France) by Julia Ducournau which premiered at the Festival de Cannes.
