Holding back her tears, the actress revealed that she didn't want to cry on the sets, so she didn't share the news with anyone, including her manager. The Mickey Virus actress said that she had finished the shoot and finally spoke to her family. And the moment she had reached home, she had broken down. Ellie said:
"I was completely shocked and I didn't tell my manager. I was thinking that if I tell anyone I would just break down and ruin the entire shoot, the makeup.”
