Tropes & Trivia about her works:

  • Action Girl: Most of her famous roles (Enfys Nast, Karli Morgenthau and Jade) so far are badass, capable women.
  • Actor-Shared Background: Kellyman's played characters with mixed race ancestry like her multiple times, which she's very happy about.
  • Awesome, Dear Boy: She has spoken of her pride in playing characters who share her mixed race heritage for greater representation, especially for other women with the same kind of ancestry as herself. Further, she was very pleased to play Jade from Willow who's gay like her, saying it would have been wonderful having a character like her when she had been growing up and made her feel less isolated because of her sexuality.
  • Production Posse: She's been employed by Disney on several projects, including Solo, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Willow (the latter two for Disney+).
  • Queer Character, Queer Actor: As noted above, she's openly gay, and her character in Willow is too.
  • Youthful Freckles: She has a distinctive face full of freckles and has played characters that matched her age in Raised by Wolves and Solo: A Star Wars Story (she was 19 in the latter). Upon unmasking herself, Enfys Nest looks noticeably young.
