Ellen Page begs to get involved in action scenes for her movies.|

Ellen Page loves roles that are "super physical".
The 26-year-old actress has had her fair share of action scenes in films such as Inception and the X-Men franchise. Ellen played a lot of sport growing up, so relishes any opportunity to indulge her active side.
"For sure, I love it actually," she told Crave Online when asked about action scenes. "And Whip It even. That was a movie where it was like, 'Please let me do everything. I'll move to LA. and I'll train for months so I can do it.' Because I was quite an athlete when I was younger, I think I have that in me. I love roles that are super physical and always want to be able to do everything, but sometimes they just won't let you because of insurance."
Ellen's latest role sees her play a CIA operative in new video game Beyond: Two Souls. Although there are many high octane fight sequences in the game, Ellen didn't get to take part as much as she would have liked.
"I do some basic stuff like throwing punches, but a lot of that major action is other people who put a tremendous amount of work into this. I did the acting part. I wish. I'm supposed to do a movie with Fox called Queen & Country that will have a lot more of that kind of stuff so I'm looking forward to that," she explained.
Queen & Country is based on the comic books by Greg Rucka and follows British intelligence agent Tara Chace, who finds her identity compromised as she attempts to prevent a terrorist plot.
Ellen is so far impressed with the work being done on the project.
"The awesome graphic novels. Pretty darn faithful actually," she said when quizzed on how faithful the film will be to the graphic novels. "The writers are pleased with the script so that's what matters the most. I feel like that's a good sign."
