The Ghanaian UK-based child actress, Diaana Babnicova, has come under the spotlight after starring in Netflix's Hollywood Christmas feel-good family film titled Jingle Jangle.
Diaana plays the role of young Jessica in the American Christmas film that features an all-Black cast.
YEN.com.gh gathers that Diaana’s mother, Sandra Frimpong (@sandra_frimpong) is a Ghanaian married to a Slovenian named Juri Babnic (@juri_babnic).
The child actress has played roles in movies Becoming Everything and Don't Breathe2 that are set for release in 2021.
Written and directed by David E Talbert, Jingle Jangle begins as a new Christmas story told by a grandmother Phylicia Rashad from a huge book. It is about a toymaker named Jeronicus Jangle played by Justin Cornwell as a young man and Forest Whitaker as the older man.
Diaana Babnicova is not the only Ghanaian who features in Netflix's Jingle Jangle. The film features the song of Ghanaian highlife singer Bisa Kdei and the dancing prowess of another young Ghanaian actress named Princess K.
Bisa Kdei joined forces with American singers, John Legend and Usher, to work on the colossal Hollywood Christmas project.
The highlife entertainer took to his social media platforms to announce his accomplishment and celebrate his latest exploit.

In other news, the award-winning Ghanaian journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah, has secured a job for a once scruffy hawker named Kessben to work as a shop manager.
The generous gesture comes not long after the acting general manager of GHOne TV obtained a job for Kessben’s colleague, Ebetoda, at Agoo TV to follow in her footsteps as a TV presenter.
Nana Aba Anamoah obtained the job for Ebetoda six weeks after encountering the then-struggling hawker on the streets in Accra.
