Ella Purnell, who plays Jackie in Yellowjackets, knew her character Jackie’s fate early on and couldn’t keep it a secret among the cast on set. “Oh, no I told everybody,” says Purnell. “I told everybody like the first day. Maybe I should have kept it a secret. That would have been hilarious. Imagine if I would have kept it a secret until the last episode?”

In contrast to her customary predilection for playing characters who are harder to like, Purnell confesses that she was worried about portraying Jackie in a way that would be sympathetic to viewers. “As the season progressed and Jackie became more and more unhelpful, shall we say, out in the wilderness with everybody else, I did start to think, ‘God, you’re not making it any easier for me’ and then I did become a little concerned about how likable she would be.”

Yet Jackie showed that she had layers. She wasn’t a stereotypical queen bee or mean girl, and deep down, she truly loved her best friend, Shauna. All of this led to Jackie becoming beloved among Yellowjackets viewers, to the point where many were in denial when she passed away in the series' climactic episode.

“That just goes to show that it’s all in the writing, and it actually doesn’t matter if you try to make her likable, because by the time I died, I thought, no one’s going to care that Jackie’s dead because she’s so bloody annoying that everyone’s going to go ‘Oh, thank God,’ but people seemed to really respond to her and really respond to the character.”
