What's Rising

Lorraine Pascale’s lookalike daughter Ella Balinska, 22, is set to take Hollywood by storm

Ella Balinska is currently soaking up the sunshine on an idyllic getaway before her exciting promotional commitments for the new Charlie’s Angels reboot kicks off.

And if her fun-loving, warm and inviting Instagram platform is anything to go by, it’s no doubt the 22-year-old will be completely at ease while kicking off her new life in Hollywood following the film’s release in November. 

Her relaxed nature when it comes to her shiny new role may also come from her upbringing, for she is the daughter of the hugely popular former model and TV cook, Lorraine Pascale, 46.

Lorraine gave birth to Ella back in 1996 with her ex-husband Polish entrepreneur Kazimierz Balinski-Jundzil. The pair divorced the 2000. 

And Ella has undeniably inherited her mother’s model good looks and statuesque 5 ft 11 in frame – however, instead of entering the modelling world, Ella has been adamant about working in the acting industry.  

Serious about her craft, the beauty graduated from the prestigious Guildford School of Acting in 2018, and during that time starred in a number of short films, as well as in the TV series, The Athena. 

It wasn’t long before her talent and dedication were spotted, and in July 2018 she was announced by Sony Pictures Entertainment to be part of the line-up in the new Charlie’s Angels reboot.

Ella will star opposite Kristen Stewart and Naomi Scott in Elizabeth Banks’ action-packed remake of Charlie’s Angels, which hits US theatres November 15 and UK theatres November 29. 

And it appears that no one is more thrilled with her oncoming fame than her own mother. 

Speaking to YOU magazine, Lorraine gushed: ‘I am so proud – soon you’ll be interviewing her not me. 

‘I always knew she would do something creative and it’s wonderful to see her following her passion. 

‘As her mother, I will always worry about whether she is earning enough to pay her bills, but it brings me joy to see her so happy and doing so well.’

And speaking about her rising career with Vogue last year, Ella divulged that she was qualified for 12 different types of stage combat – making her a natural for the choice for the role of Jane Kano in Charlie’s Angels. 

‘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.’

‘My goal is to be able to inspire people. No matter their race, creed or sexuality. If I can literally make any ounce of them feel inspired, then I’ve done my job – that’s it.’

Ella is currently making the most of her time off and is seen enjoying an idyllic getaway with her pals in a number of Instagram snaps.

However, proving that she hasn’t relied on her famous mother, Ella recently detailed her struggles to get to where she is now. 

Sharing a snap from her recent campaign with Kurt Geiger, the stunner added a lengthy caption about how she would balance her sales associate job at Selfridges with auditions across London. 

She wrote: ‘Now here’s a crazy real story (and an overly cliché post). I worked as a sales associate at Selfridges Oxford Street in London as part of the Luxury Men’s Shoes Department, which is owned by Kurt Geiger, for two and a half years. (Yes, that was probably me who sold you your designer sneakers).

‘The team believed in me when I was a student at Drama School (you know who you are) and supported me all through my training. They let me take two hour lunch breaks when I had an audition on the other side of London, and let me work an extra hour at the end of the day to make it up. 

‘Eventually I had to leave as filming a TV show five days a week and working my yellow badge on weekends started to get a bit much! And s***, a year and a half later I can show you a sneak peek of my Kurt Geiger campaign, shot by @eriktorstensson, that is inside @edward_enninful and @sussexroyal iconic September Issue of @britishvogue.’ 

‘This is for my day ones helping me learn lines in the stock room and leaving at 6am after setting up for sale: you are family. This is for all the people I had the pleasure of meeting in store, I hope your shoes are still bringing you as much joy today! And for you guys, I hope I can inspire you as much as you guys have inspired me on my journey.’
