Profile Bio Text
Ellen Grace Philpotts-Page (born February 21, 1987), known professionally as Ellen Page, is a Canadian actress. Page received both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her role as the title character in the film Juno.
She is also known for her starring roles in Hard Candy, Smart People, Whip It, Juno, and as Katherine "Kitty" Pryde in X-Men: The Last Stand. She also received attention in her native Canada for award-winning roles in Pit Pony and Marion Bridge, as well as television shows Trailer Park Boys and ReGenesis.
In 2008, Page was nominated for Time`s 100 Most Influential People list and placed #86 on FHM`s Sexiest Women in the World list. In June 2008, Page was named to Entertainment Weekly`s future A-List stars list.
Page was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, the daughter of Martha Philpotts, a teacher, and Dennis Page, a graphic designer. She attended the Halifax Grammar School until grade 10, spent some time at Queen Elizabeth High School, and graduated from the Shambhala School in 2005. She also spent two years in Toronto, Ontario studying in the Interact Program at Vaughan Road Academy along with close friend and fellow Canadian actor Mark Rendall.
Growing up, Page enjoyed playing with action figures and climbing trees.
Page began acting at age 10, appearing in the telefilm Pit Pony, which would later spin-off a television series. This led to roles in a number of small Canadian films and television series—notably playing Treena Lahey in Season 2 of Trailer Park Boys. At 16, she was cast in an independent film shot in Europe, Mouth to Mouth. Page starred in the 2005 movie Hard Candy, and gained praise for "one of the most complex, disturbing and haunting performances of the year".
She also appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand as Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat), a girl who can walk through walls. In the previous X-Men movies, the part had been used in brief cameos played by other actresses, but never as a main character. As the title-character star of Juno, Page garnered substantial praise; A. O. Scott of the New York Times noted her as being "frighteningly talented" and Roger Ebert said, "Has there been a better performance this year than Ellen Page`s creation of Juno? I do not think so". Page was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Juno, but lost to Marion Cotillard in La Vie En Rose. The role, however, did win her several awards, including a Canadian Comedy Award, Independent Spirit Award, and Satellite Award. Page starred in Smart People, which premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and received a wide release on April 11, 2008. Although released after Juno, Smart People was shot earlier.
Other film credits include An American Crime, which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival; The Tracey Fragments, which was released in November 2007 in Canada and May 2008 in the U.S.; and The Stone Angel.
She was featured in Michael Lander`s Peacock, opposite Cillian Murphy, Susan Sarandon, Bill Pullman and Josh Lucas, which will be released in 2009. She also starred in Drew Barrymore`s directorial debut, Whip It alongside Juliette Lewis, Marcia Gay Harden, Drew Barrymore, and Kristen Wiig. The film premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival and had its wide release on October 2, 2009.
In August 2009 Page began shooting the thriller Inception, a film directed by Christopher Nolan and co-starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ken Watanabe. The film is scheduled to be released in July 2010.
She is attached to play the title character in an adaptation of Charlotte Brontë`s Jane Eyre and will reportedly play Stacie Andree in an upcoming film about Laurel Hester.
Page had planned to work on an as-yet unmade film entitled Jack and Diane opposite Olivia Thirlby, with whom she co-starred in Juno but it was announced in August 2009 that her role in the movie would be now be played by the actress Alison Pill. Page had also discussed with Heath Ledger the idea of starring in his directorial debut, The Queen`s Gambit before his death in January 2008. Page hosted Saturday Night Live on March 1, 2008 and on May 3, 2009 she guest starred in the episode "Waverly Hills 9-0-2-1-D`oh" of the animated series The Simpsons as a character named Alaska Nebraska, a parody of Hannah Montana.
Page resides in her hometown of Halifax, and has a dog named Patti. She is prone to walk and talk in her sleep.
In 2008, Page was one of 30 celebrities who participated in an online ad series for U.S. Campaign for Burma, calling for an end to the military dictatorship in Burma.
She describes herself as a pro-choice feminist.
In Fall 2008 she participated in permaculture projects at Lost Valley Educational Center.
