SMART PEOPLE

Honored by the National Board of Review, Chicago Film Critics Association, and the Broadcast Critics Association, as well as a recent Golden Globe, SAG and Independent Spirit award nominee, ELLEN PAGE has established herself as one of the most promising young actresses. Page is at the heart of "Juno,” Fox Searchlight's new critically-acclaimed film about an offbeat teenager (Page) who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant and makes a surprising decision regarding her unborn child. Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman, the film also stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner, J.K. Simmons, Michael Cera and Allison Janney.

In 2006, Page appeared as "Kitty Pryde” in the third installation of the X-Men franchise: "X-Men: The Last Stand.” She also recently starred in the title role of Bruce MacDonald's "The Tracey Fragments” and starred opposite Catherine Keener, in "An American Crime,” written and directed by Tommy O'Haver. Other recent credits include the Canadian ensemble piece, "The Stone Angel” featuring Ellen Burstyn and directed by Kari Skogland; Alison Murray's "Mouth to Mouth” and Daniel MacIvor's ensemble piece "Wilby Wonderful.”

As the lead in Lionsgate's 2005 independent feature, "Hard Candy,” directed by David Slade, Page won great praise for her tour de force performance as a fourteen-year-old girl who meets a thirty-year-old photographer on the internet and then looks to expose him as pedophile. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and also starred Patrick Wilson and Sandra Oh. A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Page has long been a fixture in Canadian television and cinema. She began her career at the age of 10 on the award-winning television movie "Pit Pony” and received a Gemini nomination for Best Performance in a Children's Program and a Young Artist Awards nomination for Best Performance in a TV Drama Series. Two films later, Page appeared as "Joanie” in "Marion Bridge,” winner of the "Best Canadian First Feature” at the Toronto International Film Festival. The part won Page an ACTRA Maritimes Award for Outstanding Female Performance. She also appeared in the cult hit TV series "Trailer Park Boys.” Page won a Gemini award for her role of "Lilith” in the first season of "ReGenesis,” a one-hour drama for TMN/Movie Central. She also starred in "Mrs. Ashboro's Cat,” a cable feature for The Movie Network for which she also won a Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Children's or Youth Program or Series.
