This week, Les chats with actress Lily Brooks O’Briant, a versatile rising performer whose talents have catapulted her into leading roles across both the stage & screen at just 16 years old. This fall, Lily Brooks can be seen fronting the new Apple TV+ series “Life By Ella” in the title role of Ella McCaffrey. The series follows Ella as she returns to school after beating cancer with a brand-new perspective, excitement for what the future holds, and a major “seize the day” mentality, ready to tackle everything she was too afraid of before and determined not to let the minutia of fake friends and social media status distract her. “Life By Ella” will premiere internationally on Apple TV+ on September 2, 2022. We had a great time chatting about her career and what her new show means to her. Check it out!
