(born on February 21, 1987) is a Canadian
actress, most notable for her award-winning roles in Pit Pony
and Marion Bridge, and the 2004 TV series Regenesis. Ellen is
particularly well known in Canada, for playing the character
Treena on the hit TV show Trailer Park Boys, and gained
substantial attention for her starring role in Hard Candy. Her
highest-profile role to date has been in 2006's X-Men: The Last
Stand playing Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde).
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Ellen Page started
her drama training at the Neptune Theatre School. Ellen began
her acting career at the age of 11 in a made-for-TV film (which
would later be made into a series) called Pit Pony. This led to
roles in a number of small Canadian films and television series.
At age 16 Page was cast in an independent film shot in Europe,
Mouth to Mouth, which solidified her place among the most
talented young actors in Canada.
Ellen Page graduated from the Shambhala School in 2005 in
Halifax, Nova Scotia, and plans to work next on The Basement
(also noted as An American Crime), based on the true story of
Sylvia Likens, opposite Catherine Keener.
