In December 2020, Elliot Page declared publicly that he is transgender and that his pronouns are “he/they.” Given that he had to let go of his old self and start again, it was a significant moment in his life. There was some bitterness there, despite the fact that this news was accepted with love and compassion.
The actor is well-known in the business as an Oscar nominee, X-Men franchise star, and The Umbrella Academy star on Netflix. Some people asked specific questions regarding The Umbrella Academy while others speculated on how this may influence his career. The Umbrella Academy’s third season debuted on June 22, and we have to admit that it has established the bar for how a creative public initiative should handle a topic this delicate.
The Juno Star started working at the age of 10
Elliot Page started acting before he ever entered college. Instead, he joined the drama club at his school, and one day, a casting director chose him to act in “Pit Pony,” a 1997 TV movie that eventually became a series. Following that, he took off, making appearances in numerous Canadian movies, TV series, and even a European film. Page relocated to Toronto when he was 16 years old to pursue acting in the big metropolis. He had to go to Southern California shortly after, though, for his first American film.
Elliot Page stole our hearts with his work
At the early age of 16, Elliot Page, with the approval of his parents, starred in the movie Hard Candy. Elliot Page knew he wanted to land the lead part in the 2007 movie “Juno” as soon as he finished reading the script. The enormous box office success of Juno thrust Page into the spotlight. The first film Elliot Page worked on following “Juno” was “Whip It,” which was helmed by Drew Barrymore. After that, though, Page felt like he needed a little more space, so he left the chaos behind and traveled to Oregon, where he spent a month living in an eco-village.
Elliot Page returned to acting with a bang after returning from his hiatus and having just recovered. This time, it was for a very significant movie, appearing in “Inception” (2010) with acting legend Leonardo DiCaprio. Elliot Page returned to the “X-Men” set in 2013 to reprise his role as Kitty Pryde in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” following a hectic year on set in 2011 and 2012.
He came out as gay in an inspiring way
Elliot Page made a very daring decision in 2014 when he came out as gay in a speech at the Human Rights Campaign. He criticized the harmful culture that marginalizes LGBTQ+ individuals in society and urged everyone to improve. Following his official coming out, Elliot Page and Ian Daniel started a project that would take them both throughout the globe. In 2016 and 2017, the couple appeared in the Viceland documentary series “Gaycation,” which sought to raise awareness of the struggles faced by LGBTQ+ individuals worldwide. A true inspiration man!
Elliot Page revealed he is a transgender
Elliot Page came out as transgender in a stirring Instagram post in December 2020. Page revealed that his name is Elliot and that he prefers the pronouns he/they. Page thanked everyone who has helped him with “overwhelming gratitude.” Celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Kate Mara, Ruby Rose, and Anna Paquin sent encouraging comments on Page’s Instagram post after he made his revelation. Elliot Page has always been a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community.
His journey on Umbrella Academy is beautiful
A new Netflix series named “The Umbrella Academy” debuted in February 2019 and was based on Dark Horse Comics. The series depicts the escapades of a dysfunctional family of siblings with superpowers and has a large ensemble cast, including well-known actors Mary J. Blige, Tom Hopper, and Colm Feore. What a rollercoaster! Vanya Hargreeves, played by Elliot Page, is a well-known character in the popular Netflix series. Vanya will come out as Viktor Hargreeves in Season 3 after the actor’s coming out as transgender in 2020. Viktor Hargreeves utilizes he/him pronouns. Working on the program has been a wonderful experience for Page.
