‘Before I got into porn I was a very shy girl, I didn’t even talk to someone on the phone. I hated the sound of my own voice and never thought I was pretty enough. I struggled a lot with weight issues. I never thought in a million years I would be capable of doing something like this,’ she was quoted saying in an episode of the BBC Three series Sex Map of Britain, called A Career in Porn.

Ella explained what made her switch from studying law to acting in the porn industry, ‘It wasn’t my original intention to get into porn, my original intention was to do a law degree. I’m halfway through that, I have postponed that for now. I did a stint doing lads’ mags, then it kind of progressed from one into the other.

On being questioned about the harsh criticisms faced by members of the adult industry, especially the XXX actresses, Ella said that she is not ashamed of her move to the porn industry. As a matter of fact, the criticisms only ‘fuel her fire’. She said, ‘For me, I almost kind of don’t care, because my love for my job kind of outweighs them, it conquers all.’
