As a long-time fan who has been following Ella‘s career from the beginning, I‘m excited to share more about this wonderful young actress who is destined for greatness!

Her Early Life and Introduction to Acting

Ella Anderson was born on March 26, 2005 in Denver, Colorado to parents Rob and Jodi Anderson. Ella is the middle child, with two brothers named Cole and Owen.

Ella‘s passion for performing started at the young age of 3 when she began violin lessons. She became quite skilled, later getting to perform with the prestigious Nashville Symphony Orchestra.

As a child, Ella loved to entertain family and friends with her dramatic and comedic flair. Noticing their daughter‘s talent and enthusiasm for performing, Ella‘s parents got her an agent, leading to her first acting role at age 5 in a commercial.

The Anderson family made the decision to relocate to California to help pursue Ella‘s blossoming acting career. This move quickly paid off with Ella booking her breakthrough role on Henry Danger in 2014 at the age of 9.

Her Big Breakout on Henry Danger

In 2014, Ella Anderson landed the role of a lifetime when she was cast as Piper Hart on the brand new Nickelodeon superhero comedy series Henry Danger.

The show, starring Jace Norman as a teenage boy balancing life as a superhero sidekick, became an instant hit for Nickelodeon. Ella‘s character Piper, the quick-witted little sister of the main character, was a standout role.

Over 5 action-packed seasons, Ella got to showcase both her excellent comedic timing and her ability to portray moving dramatic moments. Despite being so young, she could hold her own in scenes with more experienced adult actors.

Her portrayal of Piper was a key ingredient in the show‘s success. Ella used her energetic charm and subtle facial expressions to bring the character to life. She earned herself a Young Artist Award nomination for her performance in 2017.

Spreading Her Wings with New Roles

As Henry Danger was winding down in 2020 after an impressive five season run, Ella was ready to spread her wings and take on new acting challenges.

She booked a recurring role as the mischievous Orielee on the sitcom American Housewife. The devious character allowed Ella to show she could play less innocent roles.

Ella also landed a starring part on the Netflix series The Healing Powers of Dude playing the free-spirited friend Sophie. This more nuanced role required Ella to portray the complexities of growing up.

In 2022, Ella has continued expanding her repertoire with roles on Disney Channel‘s Sydney to the Max and Paramount Plus‘ Remy and Boo.

It‘s clear from her outstanding performances across these various shows that Ella has matured into an incredibly versatile young actress.

Her Foray into Animated Voice Acting

In addition to on-screen acting, Ella has started to branch out into voiceover work. Animation unleashes a whole new aspect of Ella‘s acting talents.

She voiced the character of Katie on the animated kids show Littlest Pet Shop. Showcasing her vocal skills, Ella brought the animated character to life just as convincingly as her on-screen portrayals.

Ella is next slated to voice the starring role of Addie in the upcoming fantasy film The Witch Boy. This marks her first major voice acting role in a high profile feature film, adding a new dimension to herresume.
