Biography

With such diverse roles in both the disturbing indie film "Hard Candy" (2006) and the more mainstream summer blockbuster "X-Men: The Last Stand" (2006), actress Ellen Page primed herself to make a major splash with her star-making turn in the surprise indie hit, "Juno" (2007), in which she played a sharp-witted high school teen who becomes pregnant and decides to give up the baby for adoption. Page's performance as the titular spitfire earned rave reviews and an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Despite the massive attention she received from "Juno," Page chose to stay in the indie world, appearing alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church in "Smart People" (2008), and starring in Drew Barrymore's directing debut "Whip It" (2009). From there, she starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in a major blockbuster, "Inception" (2010), a mind-bending action thriller from Christopher Nolan that earned widespread praise and amassed a serious amount of worldwide box office. But true to form, the indie-minded Page returned to the small films with the superhero comedy "Super" (2011), proving that she was an actress as talented as she was unpredictable.
