Kane was born on 9 August 1990 in Claremont, a suburb of Perth. Her father is Scottish (from Glasgow) and her mother has Scottish, Irish, and French ancestry. She grew up in Perth, and attended St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls. She has a 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, her mother and she 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.
Kane began performing at the age of three, starting with dance and then moving to singing and acting. At the age of six, 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. She was given a three-month contract with the show. Her friends convinced her to enter the competition, but she did not think she was actually going to get the role. In December 2006, Kane announced that she would be leaving the show after her contract was not renewed. At the time of the announcement, Kane had not yet appeared as Lolly.
From March to December 2009, Kane portrayed Tenaya 7 on Power Rangers RPM, part of the long-running Power Rangers franchise.

In 2014, Kane appeared in horror movie The Devil’s Hand as Ruth. She originally auditioned for Alycia Debnam-Carey’s role, but producers thought she was not right for the part, so they offered her Ruth, who got more along with her personality. Kane starred in Scott Speer’s short thriller film Realm in 2015, which is set to become a full-length film with a release date in 2016.
In June 2016, Kane stars in the third season of Dragons: Race to the Edge in the role of Mala, Defender of the Wing.
