Childhood and Adolescence

Ellen was born and raised in the city of Halifax, located in the province of Nova Scotia, in the eastern part of Canada. Her father, Dennis Page, worked as an artist in a local design studio, and her mother, Martha Philpotts-Page, was a teacher. Later, her parents divorced, and Ellen alternately lived with her busy working mother and her father and his new wife, a very strict woman, and her two sons.

As a child, Ellen was a real daredevil. She played in the yard with neighborhood boys, climbed trees, and roller-skated, sweeping everything in her path. At the same time, she was incredibly theatrical from an early age, willingly participating in children's plays without any shyness in front of the audience. Therefore, her parents chose a high school with a theatrical emphasis for their daughter, and they were absolutely right.

The teachers immediately recognized young Page's acting talent and actively involved her in school productions. At the age of ten, she got her first role in the television short film "Pit Pony". The girl did an excellent job with the task at hand and was later approved for filming in the series of the same name. The young actress was noticed and was eagerly invited to full-length projects: "Marion Bridge", "Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story", "ReGenesis", "Wilby Wonderful" and others.
By the end of high school, Ellen had appeared in a dozen films and had become a fairly recognizable figure on Canadian TV. This didn't prevent her from continuing her education at Queen Elizabeth High School and then honing her acting skills at the Vaughan Road Academy.

Acting Career

At the age of 17, Ellen appeared in the thriller "Hard Candy," taking on the challenging role of a teenage girl who decides to take revenge on a glamorous photographer, accused of pedophilia (played by Patrick Wilson).

This film provoked mixed reactions from the audience, as the methods of the heroine were quite cruel, but it was highly appreciated by film critics, largely due to the talent of young Page.
“This film questions the classic concept of the confrontation between good and evil,” the 14-year-old actress mused, “one moment you are full of sympathy for the heroine, and the next you are filled with hatred.”
Ellen admitted that she drew inspiration from the character Jodie Foster in the 1977 drama "Taxi Driver."

This role instantly made her a rising star in cinema. After the subsequent project, the indie drama "Mouth to Mouth," she landed the role of mutant Kitty Pryde in the blockbuster "X-Men: The Last Stand," working on the same set with Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, and Famke Janssen.

In 2007, she took on the lead role in the drama "An American Crime," based on true events. Her character, teenager Sylvia, was locked in a basement and subjected to brutal torture by a woman trusted by the girl's parents. .

At the same time, she brilliantly portrayed on screen the image of a touching pregnant schoolgirl searching for adoptive parents for her future child, in the drama "Juno," where Michael Cera and Jennifer Garner also starred. This work earned the young actress nominations for the "Golden Globe" and "Oscar," and many other prestigious film awards. Page was talked about as a serious character artist, attracting the attention of renowned directors and being offered deep dramatic roles.

She also landed a role in the superhero fantasy series "The Umbrella Academy."

In 2019, the series "The Umbrella Academy" from Netflix was released. In it, Page played Vanya Hargreeves, and her colleagues on the set were Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, and David Castañeda. The series had a successful start, so the project was immediately extended for several more seasons.

At the same time, the series "Tales of the City" started, where Elliot (in 2020, Page came out as non-binary and asked to be referred to as he/him or they/their) also got one of the main roles.

In 2020, Page worked on the voice-over for the documentary film about dolphins Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin, the premiere of which will take place in 2025, and an untitled biopic about John Belushi, the release date of which is unknown.

Personal Life of Elliot Page

The personal life of Page matches his rebellious character: it's equally vibrant and unpredictable. In 2006, the actress was in a relationship with his co-star Ben Foster. Their relationship was short-lived, and since then, Page has not been seen in a relationship with men.

In 2014, Elliot officially came out as a lesbian at a human rights conference in Las Vegas, after which he began to publicly appear with his girlfriend, artist Samantha Thomas.

Later, the actor started dating a new love - dancer and choreographer Emma Portner, with whom he often appeared in public, unashamedly demonstrating his unconventional love. In the winter of 2018, Elliot and Emma got married.

Elliot long realized that he found it difficult to identify himself as a woman in the traditional sense of the word. On December 1, 2020, he asked fans to refer to him in the male gender and to call him not Ellen, but Elliot:
I'm a trans person. My pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot.
It was hard for him to acknowledge his non-binary identity, but he is immensely grateful to everyone who supported him on this journey. A few months later, in 2021, it was revealed that Elliot had divorced his spouse after 3 years of marriage. The decision, according to the former partners, was mutual and considered.

In 2022, Elliot was rumored to be dating Mae Martin. But in March 2023, it turned out that they were just friends. "I'm flattered that someone could think that Elliot and I are dating, so it was quite fun," Mae stated.

Elliot Page is a vegan, practices meditation, and does yoga. The animal rights organization PETA included him in the list of the world's sexiest vegetarians next to Jared Leto.

Elliot Page Now

In recent years, Elliot Page has focused on advocating for the rights of transgender people. In March 2021, he became the first transgender man to be featured on the cover of Time magazine.

In the summer of 2023, he published a book titled "Pageboy", in which he exposed Hollywood's hypocrisy, progressive on the outside but full of prejudice on the inside. As a teenager, he constantly faced indecent proposals from filmmakers. Many persuaded Ellen not to reveal the truth about her orientation, fearing it would negatively impact her career. The management promoting new movies featuring Page forced her to wear dresses and high heels at premieres. After coming out in 2014, he faced a wave of homophobic remarks and even threats.

  • In her youth she was more often seen, now somehow less. And all this news about “he she” is some kind of crazy, isn`t it funny?

  • She could go far, but so far everything is locked on one level

  • Even though she “changed the sex”, the cutie Paige herself does not change in any way, she probably will always have the same type of role.

  • I remember her from the film Inception with DiCaprio. And the rest of the films can not be remembered.

  • I like this actress, very sweet and charismatic. She is acting in many movies, so all the movies I do not remember.
