ELLEN PAGE (Ariadne in the Warner Bros film "Inception") was honored with an Academy Award® nomination and won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress for her work in the title role of Jason Reitman's 2007 smash hit "Juno." Page's performance as an offbeat teenager, who faces an unexpected pregnancy with both insight and humor, also brought her Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award®, and BAFTA Award nominations, as well as a number of critics groups awards.

In addition, she has co-starred in such independent features as "Smart People," with Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church; Kari Skogland's "The Stone Angel," with Ellen Burstyn; Bruce McDonald's "The Tracey Fragments," for which she won Atlantic Film Festival and Vancouver Film Critics Awards for Best Actress; Tommy O'Haver's "An American Crime," opposite Catherine Keener; Alison Murray's "Mouth to Mouth"; and Daniel MacIvor's ensemble piece "Wilby Wonderful," for which she won an Atlantic Film Festival Award.
A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Page was a fixture in Canadian television and cinema from an early age. She began her career at the age of 10 in the telefilm "Pit Pony," and then starred in the series of the same name, receiving both Gemini Award and Young Artist Award nominations. She made her feature film debut in the award-winning "Marion Bridge," for which she won an ACTRA Maritimes Award for Outstanding Female Performance. Page also won two consecutive Gemini Awards: the first for her performance in the telefilm "Mrs. Ashboro's Cat," and another for her role in the first season of the series "ReGenesis."
