Produced in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1987, Ellen Page got her start in Canadian television before creating lots of buzz for her strong performance in the 2005 indie thriller Hard Candy. From that point, Page went to star in X-Men: The Last Stand, and her much-heralded character as a pregnant teenager in Juno. Although Juno became among her best known characters, Page also appeared in several popular movies, including Smart People, Inception, Super and X-Men: Days of Future Past, reprising her part in the latter picture as Kitty Pryde.
Celebrity Ellen Philpotts-Page was born on February 21, 1987, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The daughter of a teacher as well as a graphic designer, Page took an interest in theatre from a youthful age.
The active actress went to appear in a number of Canadian television series, for example, Pit Pony spinoff, Trailer Park Boys (200102) and ReGenesis (2004), in addition to the award winning movie Marion Bridge (2002).
Even after having filmed the huge funding XMen movie, Page did not develop international critical acclaim for her playing until she played a pregnant teenager in the heralded indie dramedy Juno (2007). Page’s quick wit and concealed susceptibility as the shrewd however innocent Juno McGuff earned the young star an Academy Award nomination for Best Performer. Page, just 20 years old at that time, lost the prize to actress Marion Cotillard.
After appearing in Juno, Page continued her success on movie as the star of movies like Smart People (2008) and Whip It (2009)—the former movie showcased Page as a Dennis Quaid’s secluded and mental daughter, while the latter movie, directed by Drew Barrymore, set Page in a helmet and knee pads within a roller derby league. Sidestepping page’s normal unique, comedic characters for something more serious, she starred in Inception alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 2010.
Not long after Inception, Page started participating in a sequence of voiceover work. Following page’s stint as a voiceover actor, Page reprised her part in the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
Page openly came out as homosexual within a convention in vegas in February 2014. The convention, identified Time to BOOM, was focused on addressing problems within the LGBTQ community. Page now resides in her hometown of Halifax.
