Early life[edit]

Kane was born on 9 August 1990 in Claremont, a suburb in Perth. Her father is Scottish (from Glasgow) and her mother has Scottish, Irish,and French ancestry.[1] She grew up in Perth, Western Australia and attended St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls. She's a descendant of Mary, Queen of Scots through her mother's ancestors. She has a younger brother named William, who is three years younger. Her parents divorced when she was seven, and Adelaide and her brother were raised by their single mother. When she joined the cast of Neighbours she and her mother moved to Melbourne, Victoria, while her brother and stepfather remained in Perth. She also lived for a short period in New Zealand, while shooting children's television series Power Rangers RPM.

Career[edit]

Kane started performing at the age of 3, starting with dance and then moving to singing and acting. At the age of 6 she started working professionally in some print ads, later moving to TV spots and works in various children's TV shows. Kane was picked to join the cast of Neighbours as Lolly Allen after she entered a competition run by Dolly magazine in 2006.[2] She was given a three-month contract with the show,[2] and left her class at St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls to move to Melbourne, where Neighbours is produced.[citation needed] Her friends convinced her to enter the competition, but she didn't think she was actually going to get the role.
