Elliot Page          

Actor Known For His Roles in "Juno" & "Inception"

Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, is an actor known for his roles in Juno and Inception.

Born to a teacher and a graphic designer, Page took an interest in theater from a young age. They performed in their first local production in the fifth grade and won Canada's prestigious Gemini nomination for their role in the made-for-TV movie Pit Pony in 1997. The busy actor 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, they received their first real publicity for the provocative 2005 indie thriller Hard Candy. Their haunting performance as a 14-year-old victim-turned-attacker caught the attention of director Brett Ratner, who cast them as Kitty Pryde in Page's first big-budget feature, X-Men: The Last Stand.

But it was Page's 2007 performance as a pregnant teen in the much-heralded indie dramedy Juno that put them in the international spotlight. Their 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 their success on film as the star of films like Smart People and Whip It -- the former film showcased Page as 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 their usual quirky, comedic roles for something more serious, they 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. They lent their voice to the television series “Glenn Martin DDS” in 2011 and to the popular cartoon “Family Guy.” They also brought the main character in the video game “Beyond: Two Souls” to life as the voice actor for protagonist Jodie Holmes. Following their stint as a voiceover actor, Page reprised their 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. In December of 2020, Page came out as transgender and non-binary, announcing their name change from Ellen Page to Elliot Page.

They are 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.
