Canadian actress, born February 21, 1987, best known for her breakthrough roles in ''Film/{{Juno}}'' and ''HardCandy''. She appears in:

* ''Film/{{Inception}}''
* ''Film/{{Peacock}}''
* ''Series/ReGenesis''
* ''Smart People''
* ''Film/{{Super}}''
* ''Film/ToRomeWithLove''
* ''TheTraceyFragments''
* ''Series/TrailerParkBoys''
* ''Film/WhipIt''
* ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''
* ''Film/MouthToMouth''
* ''Film/AnAmericanCrime''
* ''Videogame/BeyondTwoSouls'', playing the heroine [[InkSuitActor modeled after her]]
* ''{{Film/The East}}''
* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''

Not [[IThoughtItMeant to be confused with]] our ''other'' ''Series/{{Ellen}}'' page.

!!This actress provides examples of:

* CanNotTellAJoke: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAGLKhAaBqY The basis of this video.]]
* CelebrityEndorsement: Ellen gets paid to promote... computer networking products for Cisco in a campaign portraying a GrassIsGreener little town as the new tech hub of the universe (which just happens to be in her home province of [[CanadaEh Nova Scotia]]).
* DawsonCasting: Almost always plays a teenager, despite already being in her twenties. Understandable however given that she actually looks considerably younger than she is. ''Film/{{Super}}'' and ''Film/{{Inception}}'' have had her playing characters in their early twenties, which she was. Toyed with for Beyond: Two Souls, in which she visually ages but is still recognisable as EllenPage, and voices herself from about the teens onward, naturally being too old to do a child's voice any more.
* DyeingForYourArt: She had her head shaved on camera for ''Film/MouthToMouth'', and starved herself to play a torture victim for ''Film/AnAmericanCrime''.
* FakeAmerican: Anyone remember when she last played a Canadian?
* PintSizedPowerhouse:
** Totally owned the [[Film/{{X-Men}} Juggernaut]].
** And did you see [[HardCandy what she did]] to [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Nite Owl]]?
** Not to mention [[{{Inception}} bending Paris in half.]]
** Um...she...did bad things...to [[Film/{{Super}} Rainn Wilson]].
* PlayingAgainstType: A shallow, selfish and prosmicuous pseudo-intellectual actress in ''To Rome with Love''.
* TeensAreShort: The reason for her TypeCasting below. She looks on the bright side, though:
--> I'm a total shrimp, which makes me [[OlderThanTheyLook look younger]]. I'll be able to stay in that area longer, which is good, because there's more competition in your 20s.
* {{Tomboy}}: Many of her characters are like this.
* TypeCasting: For quite some time, Ellen Page was typecast as an atypical, rebellious teenage girl [[DeadpanSnarker with an attitude]]. However, her involvement in works such as ''{{Peacock}}'' and ''Film/{{Inception}}'' indicates a shift to more varied roles.
