Ellie Bamber sent pulses racing as she attended a special influencer screening of her new Disney+ series Willow at The Magic Castle in Hollywood on Monday.
The actress, 25, who stars as Dove in the fantasy adventure, flashed her orange bra as she went shirtless beneath a striped suit in a darker shade.
She added inches to her enviable frame with a pair of dazzling mirrored heels and wore her ginger tresses in a short bob.

Erin Kellyman (who plays Jade), Ruby Cruz (Kit), Dempsey Bryk (undisclosed role) and executive producer Jonathan Kasdan were also in attendance.
It was a family night out for protagonist Warwick Davis (Willow Ufgood), who brought along his wife Samantha (who portrays a Nelwyn Villager), daughter Annabelle (Mims), and son Harrison (undisclosed role).
In the summer, Disney+ unveiled the first full trailer for its Willow sequel, in which Warwick Davis wields a flamethrower as the titular character Willow Ufgood.
Warwick, 52, was only 17 when he landed the breakout role of the Nelwyn dwarf sorcerer apprentice, and his character has clearly grown tougher in the continuation set 20 years later.

The two-minute preview begins with a band of folks from Nockmaar Castle traveling to the village of Nelwyn to find Willow.
As soon as Willow lays eyes on Princess Kit (Ruby Cruz), who needs to rescue her abducted twin brother, he says: ‘You remind me of your mother.’
Turns out Kit’s mother is Queen Sorsha (Joanne Whalley), who later tells Willow: ‘My dear friend, I thought I could prevent all this. I was wrong.’
Willow and his company then reunite with the tiny brownies Franjean (Rick Overton) and Rool (Kevin Pollak), who served as comic relief in the first film.

‘Just like old times. Attack! Running! Horses! Mayhem!’ Rool exclaims.
At some point, Willow is caged by a band of menacing trolls.
‘Trolls,’ Willow sneers. ‘I’m so miffed’
‘We must go beyond the edge of our world into the unknown,’ Willow tells his group.
‘Our true enemy is still out there, rounding the forces of evil, and the only thing standing in its path is us.’
Trendy: Jonathan Kasdan cut a dapper figure in a black polo shirt and pinstripe trousers while Ruby Cruz flashed her pins in a distressed black skirt and a grey sweater
Posing: Dempsey put his modelling skills to use on the red carpet
Buddies: Tony Revolori and Ruby were all smiles
There were three villainous characters seen in the trailer, one of whom asks Willow: ‘How are you doing this?’
At that point, Sorsha and the sorceress Fin Raziel (the late Patricia Hayes) appear as ghosts and Willow replies: ‘Same as last time… with friends.’
Showrunners Jonathan Kasdan and Wendy Mericle’s eight-episode fantasy adventure premieres November 30 on Disney+.
The ensemble cast also includes Erin Kellyman, Tony Revolori, Amar Chadha-Patel, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, Talisa Garcia and Ralph Ineson.

In September, nineties heartthrob Christian Slater appeared with Warwick at the D23 Expo in Anaheim to announce he was playing a mystery, Indiana Jones-type character in Willow.
‘Well, there’s elements of [Indiana Jones],’ the 53-year-old Golden Globe winner teased to Extra TV.
‘I just did the ADR for it and I was very excited watching it because the temp music that they used was from Raiders [of the Lost Ark]. So it was really fun for me to, like, see my character running along to that music. I enjoyed that.’
As for Val Kilmer – who played the mercenary swordsman Madmartigan – he might not appear in the first season of Willow, but he’s still ‘a huge part of this.’
‘The first conversation I had, when Warwick and I got the greenlight to do this, was with Val,’ co-showrunner Jonathan Kasdan told Yahoo Entertainment in May.
‘Because we were shooting during [the COVID-19 lockdowns], he wasn’t able to come to Wales and shoot with us. But he is in the show in a big way. And we’re pretty excited about it…Madmartigan lives on!’
The 62-year-old Grammy nominee’s vocal cords were damaged during the two tracheotomies he underwent for his battle with throat cancer.
Ron Howard’s 1988 original film – which was heavily inspired by The Lord of the Rings – amassed $137.6M at the global box office despite dismal reviews.
Willow premieres on November 30 on Disney+.
