The Ink Factory’s Stephen Cornwell lost his home Tuesday due to the Thomas Fire raging in Venutra County. Although his family is safe, almost everything they owned has been destroyed. The Cornwell family evacuated their Ojai home on Monday evening, after one of Cornwell’s daughters noticed flames outside a window during dinner.
On Tuesday, they learned their home, which he and his family built, had completely burned.
Stephen, his wife Clarissa, and daughters Catherine and Isabella were at the house, along with their two dogs, four cats, and one horse. All were evacuated safely and are currently staying with friends in Carpinteria. We were told he was only able to grab a backpack with some essential items, like his work laptop and passport.
The brothers Cornwell, who hail from the UK, and The Ink Factory are behind such TV and film projects as The Night Manager, Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk and The Little Drummer Girl.
This is going to be a tough Christmas for them.
