How Old Is Jinx in Arcane Compared to the Voice Actor Ella Purnell?

At the beginning of the first part of Arcane, Jinx was about 11 years old. On the other hand, Ella Purnell, the English actress who voices the character, was between the ages of 24 and 25 when she worked on the TV show in 2021.

Jinx was forced to grow up really fast in the second and third acts of the series, leaving her on the brink of adulthood at an estimated age of 17-19.

These events transformed Jinx from being an innocent child to a deranged criminal and a killer. Meanwhile, it is speculated that Jinx’s sister Vi is between 14-16 years old during the first act of Arcane and is about 20-23 years old during the second and third acts.

How Old Was Jinx in Arcane Part 1?

Jinx was only a child of 11 years in Arcane Part 1. As a child, Jinx had a short hairstyle with one braid and pale skin with bright blue eyes. She was a curious but kind child who impulsively made decisions that would have dire consequences for the people around her.

After losing her parents, her adopted father Vander, and some others, she blamed herself for her poor decisions. She was then haunted by both auditory and visual hallucinations of Mylo and Claggor’s dead voices and bodies. She also had trouble connecting with her sister, who seemed to be drifting apart from her as time went by. Their separation really affected Jinx’s mental stability, but she didn’t show it. Instead, she covered up her pain and trauma by acting lively and sarcastic, and funny at all times.

The first act of Arcane was aired in late November 2021, and as of then, Ella Purnell, the voice actor for Jinx, was 25 years old. Meanwhile, her character, Jinx, was 11 years old in that act. This means there was a 14-year gap between Purnell and Jinx.

However, the wide gap was not noticeable in the acting as Purnell perfectly delivered her acting without flaws. As a matter of fact, if one is not informed about the age difference, it would not even be a concern at all. With the right intonations and flow of speech, Purnell’s voice synced right in with her character’s motion on the screen and didn’t give room for any doubt or questions about a possible age gap.
