The teenage daughter of actor Ioan Gruffudd and his ex-wife Alice Evans has asked for a restraining order against her famous father and his girlfriend Bianca Wallace.
In documents filed on May 31 at the Los Angeles Superior Court, 13-year-old Ella Evans applied for a temporary restraining order from her 49-year-old dad.
She has also applied for civil harassment protection from Gruffudd’s girlfriend, actress Bianca Wallace, 29.

It’s the latest extraordinary development in a domestic drama that began when Gruffudd walked out on his then-wife Evans in 2021 after a 14-year marriage.
Gruffudd, the British star of ITV’s Liar and The Fantastic Four, and Evans, star of 102 Dalmatians, have been fighting a bitter divorce battle.
He already has a restraining order out against his estranged wife, which prevents her from mentioning him on social media for three years.
Both are seeking custody of the children, and both say they have no money.
Last month the $2 million marital home in Los Angeles was sold at Gruffudd’s request after he said he no longer had the funds to pay for it.
Evans and the children moved to a new, rented, address.
Gruffudd met aspiring actress Wallace in Australia while shooting the series Harrow.
They now live together in Los Angeles and Wallace, who has multiple sclerosis, recently gave a magazine interview about her condition and ‘Yo’s’ support and love for her.

Gruffudd filed for joint custody of his two daughters last July after Evans filed for sole custody amid their acrimonious divorce
He and Evans announced that their marriage was over in January 2021 and he went public with his new romance that October.
Gruffudd filed for joint custody of his two daughters last July after Evans filed for sole custody amid their acrimonious divorce.
As well as requesting visitation rights, he claimed in the filing that Evans had been purposely trying to cut communication between him and his children.
He also petitioned that the girls attend in-person therapy and reunification therapy via zoom with him pending court-ordered mediation about custody.
In court filings, Gruffudd accused Evans of verbally abusing him during their marriage, and ‘undermining him’ in front of the girls throughout their lives.’
‘Alice made fun of my appearance often, making hair-loss comments and telling me I had ”saggy-vagina eyes,”’ court papers read.
He went on to claim that Evans ‘has inflicted serious emotional harm on Ella and Elsie by her statements and by interfering in my relationship with them.’
In March this year, charges that Evans had violated her restricting order were dropped.
Gruffudd is currently shooting the film Bad Boys 4 with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. His team did not immediately respond to a request to comment.
