I was born in Australia, and have been in LA (green card) for 10 years. I can, and regularly do, work all over the world.
I’m best known as the GPS voice in 75% of cars on the planet. Yes, really.
In acting, my recent work is on Physical (AppleTV+) and Shana Feste’s Run Sweetheart Run (Amazon Prime)
Over the course of my career I have channelled my talent to be the face/voice/both for some of the highest rating shows on TV and Radio as well as worked commercially for some of the largest brands on the planet. Think Toyota, McDonalds and the NFL Draft as ‘Lady Whistleblown’.
I’m a trained actor, work with a dialect coach, and honed my comedy craft doing stand-up at LA and Sydney’s finest venues, The Comedy Store, Ice House etc. I also had a 17-week run of my one-woman show UnMistakably Ella until Covid (bastard) and which then streamed internationally on Showcatcher.
My podcast TAKE FOUNTAIN WITH ELLA JAMES is hosted by BITESZ and is a collection of interviews with passionate people as they navigate a creative career in Hollywood.
I’m SAG and proudly repped by the finest in the biz, in LA, managed by Eileen O’Farrell Talent Management, The Littman Group, Aqua (Commercial) and ACM Talent (voice). In Australia, Kathryn Scott at SCOUT MANAGEMENT
