Ella Ballentine (born July 18, 2001) is a Canadian television, film, and stage actress who began her acting career as a child actor on the Toronto stage. Ballentine's portrayal of Anne Shirley in the TV movie adaptation of the classic Canadian novel, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery was a critical success, receiving a Joey Award in 2016 and a Canadian Screen Award in 2018. Career Ballentine was born in Toronto, Canada to parents Eva and Blake Ballentine. She is a graduate of the Etobicoke School of the Arts in Toronto. She began her acting career as a Child actor on the Toronto stage production of the The Railway Children, directed by Damian Cruden (2011) for Mirvish Productions.[2] She went on to appear in other stage performances, including the lead role in Numbers, at the Toronto Fringe Festival (2013), and as Little Cosette / Young Eponine in the acclaimed 25th Anniversary production of Les Miserables (2013) directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell for Mirvish Productions. She was invited to the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction Gala as one of the performers to read from one of the five prize-nominated titles.[3] (2013). Her first TV role came in a Hallmark Channel movie, Baby's Firs Christmas at IMDb (2012) in which she played Karen, a primary character with Casper Van Dien in a lead role. She took on her first film role in Atom Egoyan's feature, The Captive (2013), an official selection for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. She went on to share the screen with Susan Sarandon, Gil Bellows and Christopher Heyerdahl, in The Calling. In her next larger TV movie role for Lifetime's Clara's Deadly Secret (2013), she played Kate alongside co-stars Emmanuelle Vaugier and Richard Ruccolo. In the 2015 feature film Standoff, Ella portrays one of the lead characters, Bird, a young girl who finds protection with an ex-soldier (played by Thomas Jane) from a hit-man (played by Laurence Fishburne). Although the movie received mixed reviews, Ballentine's performance was praised by several media publications. Rene S. Garcia, JR. of Workingauthor.com wrote "And let’s not forget Ella Ballentine. I typically have no faith in child actors, but Ella strikes the perfect tone with her burgeoning independence, but emotional and physical dependency." Eoin Friel from ActionElite felt that "Ella Ballentine almost steals the movie as Bird, the girl being pursued by Sade. The poor thing goes through an absolute nightmare and manages to never be the "annoying kid" in the film; she brings genuine heart to proceedings and is essential for Carter's redemption." According to in an interview on Collider, co-Lead, Thomas Jane "[Ella] was pretty wonderful. She was fun, too."Ella’s next big role cast her as co-lead in writer/director, Bryan Bertino's horror film, The Monster (2016) with co-stars Zoe Kazan, and Scott Speedman. The Monster became an independent success and Ella received Fangoria Magazine's 2017 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actress. "If horror movie performances were given Oscars, [Kazan] would be a shoo-in. Same with Ballentine. These two are so believable," wrote Staci Layne Wilson in Dread Central. Bloody Disgusting an American horror genre website, called Ballentine "The Most Badass Horror Hero of 2016". According to critics, in the horror movie, The Monster "the spooky-good Ella Ballentine" came up as "a minor revelation." ". According to the Los Angeles Times’ Justin Chang "Ballentine gives a fine, fierce performance as a child wise beyond her years and unafraid of confrontation.", and Matt Donato from We Got This Covered writes "Ballentine rolls with the punches well for an actress her age, and this shouldn’t be understated".In 2016 Ella began her role as Anne Shirley in the 3 part TV movie adaptation of the classic Canadian novel, Anne of Green Gables. L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables (2016) was the first instalment, followed by The Good Stars at IMDb (2017), then Fire & Dew at IMDb (2017). The other main characters were portrayed by Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, Sara Botsford as Marilla Cuthbert, Julia Lalonde at IMDb as Diana Barry, and Drew Haytaoglu at IMDb as Gilbert Blyth. Ella's performance again received critical success and landed her a Canadian Screen Award (2018). "Ballentine is charming as Anne," wrote Francesca Rudkin in the New Zealand Herald. Louise Keller in Urbancinefile states "[Ballentine] is outstanding. Wide-eyed and innocent, she proffers just the right amount of worldliness as the orphan who asks for just two things as she prays for the first time. That is a lovely scene." "I was absolutely delighted by actress Ella Ballentine’s portrayal of Anne Shirley. She was a worthy Anne." wrote Sarah M Miduski. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Martin Sheen says "I adore [Ella]...She’s an extraordinary talent...She’s remarkable. And she’s very funny as well. We have great fun on the set and she’s got a great sense of humor. She’s a joy to work with."In 2019 Ella plays the lead, Jackie in Nicole Dorsey's highly appraised Black Conflux (2019) with Ryan McDonald as her co-lead. Stephan Dalton of The Hollywood Reporter praised Ella Ballentine's "luminous acting"In 2021 Hallmark Movies & Mysteries cast Ballentine as Gemma, as one of the leads in their Television movie Rise and Shine Benedict Stones at IMDb, based on Phaedra Patrick's book.
