Almost ten years ago, Angelina Jolie wowed fans as a dark fairy in the fantasy hit Maleficent - but the young actress Ella Purnell (27) was also allowed to slip into the role of the mysterious and evil "Maleficent". She played the young version of the leading role in the 2014 film and was already a real beauty at the time.

Nine years have passed since the box office success of Maleficent in 2014 and Ella has changed quite a bit. Meanwhile, she is no longer a cute 17-year-old girl but a beautiful young woman.

While she used to appear very shy and youthful on the red carpet, the actress now presents herself very confidently and even really sexy. The 27-year-old is not stingy with her charms but presents herself in short outfits with seductive make-up. The cute girl from 2014 has become a real hottie.

But the pretty actress has not only changed physically, but the career of the now 27-year-old has also developed as well. She is still active as an actress.

In Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, she played the role of "Emma Bloom" in 2016. Since 2018, she's had the lead role in the successful TV series Sweetbitter and most recently, you can watch her in The Army Of The Dead (2021) and in the mini-series Belgravia. Ella even has several recent projects including the TV series Yellowjackets and Star Trek: Prodigy
