Ellen Page’s acting career began with roles in Canadian TV shows like “Pit Pony” and “Trailer Park Boys”. Her breakthrough role came in 2007 with Diablo Cody’s comedy, “Juno” also starring Jennifer Garner, Allison Janney, Jason Bateman, and J.K. Simmons. Page’s performance earned her an Academy Awards nomination in 2008 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. After this breakout role, Page continued to act in a number of movies alongside some of the best actors including Leonardo DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore, Julianne Moore, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, and more.
Now, in addition to these roles, Page is traveling to different places with her best friend Ian Daniel, in Viceland’s documentary TV series, “Gaycation”, where the two explore the LGBTQ cultures around the world. In addition to being a loud and proud LGBTQ advocate, Page is traveling the world expressing her opinions on all different topics including marijuana legalization, public health care, women’s rights, and the BP spill. “I like how at least in Canada, we take care of each other a little bit more. We have public health care, gay people can get married, weed's decriminalized, you know. I feel grateful to come from a country where there's sort of less fear and animosity…” And her support for marijuana legalization doesn’t end there, “People can go to jail for pot possession and it can...ruin their lives, and then you have the BP spill or you have companies that basically cause the collapse of the economic system and devastated...countless people's lives and aren't being held accountable... How could you not look at that and be like, 'What's going on?'”
When she’s not traveling the world shooting her TV documentary series, Page can be seen in a number of upcoming movies including “Lioness”, “Mercy”, “Flatliners”, “Robodog”, and “The Third Wave”.
