ELLEN Page, a native of Halifax, Nova Scotia has established a name for herself as one of the busiest young emerging actors.

She was thrown into the spotlight in the summer of 2004, when she played the lead in Hard Candy, a hard hitting independent feature from director David Slade.

Ellen was then offered the role of Kitty Pride in the third instalment of X-Men shot in the autumn of 2005.

Immediately following X3, she was offered the role of Tracey in Bruce MacDonald’s The Tracey Fragments shot in early 2006, followed by another starring role, this time opposite Catherine Keener, in An American Crime.

2006 ended with yet another starring role opposite Dennis Quaid and Sarah Jessica Parker in Smart People. Upcoming projects include Jack & Diane and Light-House to shoot in 2008.

Most recently, Ellen has won critical acclaim for her performance in Jason Reitman’s Juno. Ellen’s title role portrayal of a pregnant teenager struggling to come to terms with the world around her has brought her to the attention of the cinema going public.
