Born in Brisbane, Australia, Ellie spent her childhood climbing trees, playing sports, riding horses.

 

A young, outgoing tomboy, Ellie dreamed of becoming an actress as she had a natural charismatic ability to perform in front of people. As a result of this, before her 14th birthday, she was enrolled for some extra corricular activities including singing, dancing, acting and modelling.

 

This ultimately lead to the occasional modelling job on the weekends and holidays between school. Ellie landed the lead role of Sandy in a ‘Grease Is The Word’ production and also continued to work while studying with the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).

 

She kept a busy schedule taking acting classes until she graduated in the year 2008 and with her new skill set intact, she started to model full-time while pursuing opportunities in film and television.

 

Before Ellies move to America, she had been on the cover of Maxim Magazine three times, worked with Australian labels such as Lorna Jane, lingerie giant Bras N Things, starred in a coconut water commercial, hosted a popular TV show named JETPACK Nation and also designed her own limited-edition swimwear collection, which gained international acclaim.

 

Ellie relocated to Los Angeles late 2015. Since then, she has become the face of both the GUESS Jeans Lingerie & Accessories Fall Campaigns for 2016. She has been featured in Flaunt Magazine for a Guess editorial shot by Yu Tsai, worked with labels such as Fredericks of Hollywood and has been on the cover of Treats! Magazine. Ellie was also the star of the hugely popular Yellowtail Wines Super Bowl commercial which aired in February 2017 and made Ellie a household name.

 

In January 2017 Ellie was cast in an upcoming comedy/drama called 'Fighting With My Family'. It is written and directed by Stephen Merchant and also stars Dwayne Johnson, Lena Headey, Vince Vaughn, Florence Pugh and Nick Frost. 

 

Ellie was also named a global ambassador for the Steve Irwin Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors charity alongside names like Bindi Irwin and Justin Timberlake.

 

She has built an incredible following and loyal fan base through her social media channels. With a total reach of 5 million+ people, she is able to interact with her fans on a daily basis and engage with people who identify with her likes and lifestyle.

 

Ellie is represented by WME Entertainment worldwide
