Ella Balinska, who plays former MI-6 agent Jane Kano in Charlie’s Angels, has been slaying pretty much every red carpet event she attends. Growing up her dream was to star in an action movie, but she thought her impressive height would make it impossible.

“I’ve never really thought ‘I want to make it’, it’s been more about, ‘I want to wake up in the morning to do what I love,'” she said in an interview with Vogue in October 2018.
“I’ve always wanted to do action, but I thought that at a proud 5ft 11 inches, I was too tall. I’m qualified in 12 types of stage combat, so it’s safe to say the brief for my character was very familiar,” she added about her height of 5 feet 11 inches (180 cm).

In December 2019, the then 23-year-old actress made a leggy appearance at the 2019 British Independent Film Awards in a pearl satin Miu Miu Resort 2020 dress.
She took to the stage to present the Best International Independent Film award, which went to Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite.
Ella’s tiny frock features crystal latticework embellishments and on-trend bedazzled pouf sleeves. It also has a thigh-grazing straight hemline that allowed her to showcase her long lean gams.

Beauty-wise, Ella, who is 5’11 (180 cm) tall, highlighted her features with shimmering eyeshadow, blush on, and pink lip gloss.
Who are Ella Balinska’s parents?
The English actress, who has a Polish/English father and a Jamaican mother, wore her shoulder-length hair in a ‘60s-inspired flip with a slight bouffant.
Describing herself a mix of “British, Polish, and Caribbean,” her parents are Jamaican-English chef and former model Lorraine Pascale and Polish jazz musician and entrepreneur Kazimierz Balinski-Jundzill. They divorced in 2000.

“It was confusing, but I’ve since realized there’s no real label that goes with it. It’s more just about who you are and being true to yourself. Your people will find you,” she told Vogue about her mixed-race upbringing.

Styled by Jason Bolden, Ella rounded out her retro look with a diamond ring and a pair of diamond drop earrings.
The Charlie’s Angels star then added a few more inches to her 5’10” height with Kurt Geiger ‘Britton’ pumps. They are made of glossy nude patent and feature pointed toes and about 4-inch cigarette heels.
