Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Ellen Page got her start on Canadian TV, before generating a lot of buzz for her powerful performance in the 2005 indie thriller "Hard Candy." From there, Page went on to "X-Men: The Last Stand," and her much-heralded role as a pregnant teen in "Juno."
The daughter of a teacher and a graphic designer, Ellen Page took an interest in theater from a young age. She performed in her first local production in the fifth grade and won Canada's prestigious Gemini nomination for her role in the made-for-TV movie "Pit Pony" in 1997. The busy actress went on to appear in several Canadian television series, including the "Pit Pony" spin-off, "Trailer Park Boys" and "ReGenesis," as well as the award-winning film "Marion Bridge."
Though Page was first introduced to American audiences in the Lifetime TV movie "Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story," she received her first real publicity for the provocative 2005 indie thriller "Hard Candy." Her haunting performance as a 14-year-old victim-turned-attacker caught the attention of director Brett Ratner, who cast her as Kitty Pryde in Page's first big-budget feature, "X-Men: The Last Stand."
But it was Ellen Page's 2007 performance as a pregnant teen in the much heralded indie dramedy "Juno" that put her in the international spotlight. Her quick wit and hidden vulnerability as the wise and innocent Juno McGuff earned the young star an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
After appearing in “Juno,” Page continued her success on film as the star of films like “Smart People” and “Whip It” —the former film showcased Page as a Dennis Quaid's secluded and emotional daughter, while the latter film, directed by Drew Barrymore, put Page in a helmet and knee pads as part of a roller derby league. Sidestepping her usual quirky, comedic roles for something more serious, she starred in “Inception” alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 2010.
Not long after “Inception,” Page began participating in a string of voiceover work. She lent her voice to the television series “Glenn Martin DDS” in 2011 and to the popular cartoon “Family Guy.” She also brought the main character in the video game “Beyond: Two Souls” to life as the voice actor for protagonist Jodie Holmes. Following her stint as a voiceover actor, Page reprised her role in the film “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Page co-starred alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Alison Pill, Alec Baldwin, and Greta Gerwig in the Woody Allen ensemble comedy To Rome with Love, and appeared in the thriller The East, a story centered on a contract worker tasked with infiltrating an anarchist group, only to find herself falling for its leader.
Page publicly came out as gay during a conference in Las Vegas in February 2014. The conference, named Time to THRIVE, was focused on addressing issues within the LGBTQ community.
She is currently starring in the Netflix series "Umbrella Academy" as Vanya Hargreeves. The show has been very popular, with Netflix reporting that 45 million households had watched season one during its first month of release.
