Biography

Ellen Page (born Ellen Philpotts-Page, 21.2.1987)

Ellen Page is a Canadian actress. She rose to fame with the release of Juno, for which she earned herself Golden Globe and Academy Award Best Actress nominations.

Ellen Page: Childhood

Ellen Page was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her mother, Martha Philpotts, is a teacher and her father, Dennis Page, is a graphic designer. Ellen Page studied at the Halifax Grammar School and then at Shambhala School, from which she graduated in 2005.

Page then attended the Vaughan Road Academy, which was also attended by the actor Mark Rendall.

Ellen Page: Acting Career

Ellen Page's acting career began when she was 10 years old, when she appeared in the TV film Pit Pony. This led to a number of other roles, including playing Treena Lahey in the second series of Trailer Park Boys. At the age of 16, Page was cast in Mouth to Mouth, an independent film that was filmed in Europe.

In 2005, Ellen Page starred in Hard Candy, alongside Patrick Wilson. The intense psychological thriller earned Ellen Page a number of positive reviews.

Page then appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand, playing Kitty Pryde / Shadowcat, a girl that has the ability to walk through walls.

With the release of 2007's Juno, Ellen Page's notoriety was on the rise. She was nominated for an Oscar for her performance as the pregnant teen, but she lost out to Marion Cotillard's performance in La Vie En Rose. Juno also starred Michael Cera, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner.

The following year, Ellen Page starred in Smart People. The movie had been filmed prior to Juno, but was not premiered until the 2008 Sundance Festival. Smart People also starred Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church.

Page was cast in Drew Barrymore's Whip It! The light-hearted roller-derby film also stars Juliette Lewis and Marcia Gay Harden. In 2009, she appeared in Peacock, alongside Susan Sarandon, Cillian Murphy and Josh Lucas.

In May 2009, Ellen Page featured in an episode of The Simpsons that parodied Hannah Montana. The character played by Page was named Alaska Nebraska.

Hi everyone,Juno - saw it, what a wonderful movie, very emotional. Its a story about family, hard times and learning who you are.I just ran across an interview with Ellen Page (juno) and she really reminds me of a younger Angelina Jolie in that she seems like a genuinely caring person. I'm posting the link I found below so that anyone interested can check it out, it's a bit long but I watched the whole thing.http://www.iklipz.com/MovieDetail.aspx?MovieID=52a93e88-e099-4e49-838c-a1ec5f729e77
