In 2014, W magazine named ELLEN PAGE [Stacie Andree] one of their "New Royals", an actress defining a generation. Page, an Academy Award-nominated actress, continues to build upon her on screen presence with performances that span both tentpole and art-house films. Expanding on her impressive body of work, she has recently stepped behind the camera as a producer, shepherding passion projects on the big and small screen.

Page will soon star in Patricia Rozema's Into the Forest, starring opposite Evan Rachel Wood. Based on Jean Hegland's acclaimed novel of same name, the film recounts the story of two teenage sisters struggling to survive after the collapse of society in the not too distant future. Produced by Page, Niv Fichman and Aaron, L Gilbert, the film will premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Page recently tackled the small screen, with developing and producing a new documentary series titled Gaycation, with Ian Daniel. Created with VICE and Spike Jonze, the series follows Page and Daniel as they travel through different cities around the world, exploring the sometimes dark and disturbing perspective of each city's LGBT community, as well as the local culture's overall attitude toward LGBT people. The series will premiere on VICE's new TV channel later this year.

Page recently completed production on Tallulah, opposite Allison Janney. Directed by Orange Is the New Black writer Sian Heder, the film tells the story of a woman who rescues a baby from her reckless mother and pretends the child is hers, with the help of her ex-boyfriend's mother. Ocean Blue Entertainment and Route One Films produced the film.

Next up, Page is set to star in Lioness, an indie drama which tells the true story of Lance Corporal Leslie Martz, a U.S. Marine sent to Afghanistan with the dual mandate of gaining the trust of Afghan women while also secretly extracting information about their Taliban husbands. The script was penned by Rosalind Ross (Matador) and is being produced by James Dahl. Page is also attached to star in Craig Viveiros' Queen and Country for Twentieth Century Fox, based on a graphic novel by Greg Rucka. Peter Chernin is producing through his Chernin Entertainment banner, along with Jenno Topping.

Page recently starred in the seventh installation of the X-Men franchise, Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, reprising her role as "Kitty Pryde" from the previous film, X-Men: The Last Stand. The two films alone grossed nearly $2 billion at the worldwide box office.

With her breakout role in Jason Reitman's hit comedy Juno, Page received Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe and SAG Best Actress nominations, and won the Independent Spirit Award for her performance. Additional credits include: Christopher Nolan's Inception, Woody Allen's To Rome With Love; Lynn Shelton's Touchy Feely; Drew Barrymore's Whip It; Zal Batmanglij's thriller, The East; and David Lander's Peacock; Bruce McDonald's The Tracey Fragment, An American Crime; Kari Skogland's The Stone Angel; Alison Murray's, Mouth to Mouth; Daniel MacIvor's, Wilby Wonderful and Noam Murro's Smart People and David Slade's Hard Candy.

In 2014, Page publicly came out as gay. She gave a moving and deeply personal speech at Time to Thrive, a conference to promote the welfare of LGBT youth. The speech reached millions around the world as she eloquently shared she was there because she hoped to "make a difference, and help others have an easier, more hopeful time" and felt a "personal obligation and social responsibility." Since then, Page has gone on to receive the support and admiration from peers and fans alike, for her courage and honesty.
