The leggy London local Ella Balinska saw her breakthrough role in the form of “Charlie’s Angel” spy and all-around femme fatale Jane Kano. Balinska, an accomplished athlete, had no problem assuming the role of Jane Kano in the film and was already well versed in fighting styles and handling weapons.
Prior to this, Balinska had a starring role in the short-lived television series, “The Athena”, but, sadly, the show would not be slated for a second season. The actress followed up with a starring role in the indie movie “Run, Sweetheart, Run.”
Elizabeth Banks Then
Elizabeth Banks took on the responsibility of directing, writing, producing, and starring in the 2019 motion picture reprise. As if overseeing the entire production of the film was not enough, the ambitious all-rounder wrote the critical role of Bosley to be shared by herself and Star Trek stalwart Patrick Stewart.
Banks opted to make the film a follow-on to the 2000 and 2003 smash hits rather than introduce an entirely new storyline. To best achieve this, she roped in the skills of Drew Barrymore, who took being an executive producer on the film.
Elizabeth Banks Now
The tinsel town titan continues to fill her shooting schedules back to back. Banks and husband Max Handelman, with whom she co-owns the production house Brownstone Productions, are working on several projects together for both the small and big screen.
In between all of these commitments, Banks finds time to be a doting mother to sons Felix and Magnus, as well as participate in numerous activist causes. The politically active actress played a leading role in driving Voter ID awareness for the last American elections.
Ella Balinska Now
Ella Balinska continues to slowly make a name for herself in the world of media and film. Her athletic prowess has seen her become the star of the groundbreaking videogame "Forspoken." Her fighting fit form has made an impression in the action hero genre.
In the same spirit, she is slated to have a starring role in a Netflix-produced television show of the wildly popular videogame Resident Evil. Having a passion for fashion, the statuesque actress also lends her philanthropic skills to the British Fashion Council, assisting the council with making the industry more inclusive.
Bernie Mac Then
Funny man Bernie Mac was cast in the role of Jimmy Bosley in "Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle", the sequel to the smash hit of 2000. The part of Jimmy Bosley was created to replace that of John Bosley, notoriously played by Bill Murray.
Murray reportedly declined to appear in the sequel due to the rumored on-set spat between him and co-star Lucy Liu. Mac played the inexperienced and hapless brother of the much wiser and experienced John Bosley.
