"I've always been drawn to stories and telling them; whether it was through being a part of theater when I was a little kid, or film, or with music, there's just been an innate desire to feel that connection."

Page came out as trans-masculine and queer in 2020, stating that he uses he/they pronouns.note  He married Canadian dancer and choreographer Emma Portner in 2018; the pair divorced in 2021.


Selected filmography

This actor's works provide examples of:

  • Typecasting: For quite some time, Elliot was typecast as an atypical, rebellious teenage girl with an attitude. This petered out around 2010 with his involvement in works such as Peacock and Inception, which indicated a shift to more varied roles.
  • Word of Saint Paul: He believes that many of his characters, including Juno, would eventually realize that they’re gay. An exception is Sylvia Likens, who in real life was cisgender and heterosexual.
