Robert Clotworthy provides the voice to this iconic character in this film.

Watts’ character Elena Houghlin is a scientist and the main person behind the creation of the Calisto Project, a scientific technology which becomes the main plot device in this film. Balinska plays the character of Jane Kano, who has joined the Angels after giving up her job as an MI6 agent.
This film finds the scope and reach of the Townsend Agency to have increased by leaps and bounds. Now they recruit various female agents from all over the world and send them out in international missions. Earlier, there was only one Bosley (Charlie’s assistant), who used to manage the Angels, but right now there are several Bosleys who manage different groups of Angels all over the world.
When the film begins, we see that a scientific experiment called the Calisto Project is being carried out in secrecy. But one of the junior engineers working on the project turns out to be a traitor who reveals the information to the outside world. This results in the project coming under a huge threat. This is exactly when the Angels are called upon to investigate the matter and eliminate any kind of threat.
