Ellen Page

Ellen Page has been cast in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of the popular comics and graphic novel series “The Umbrella Academy,” Variety has learned.

The live action series follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) – Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five – as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities. Page will play Vanya, the black sheep of her family. She’s the only one of Reginald Hargreeves’ adopted children with no supernatural abilities. A meek and insecure wallflower, Vanya struggles to find her place in the world.

Page is best known for her breakout role in the indie comedy “Juno,” in which she played a pregnant high school student looking to give up her child for adoption. She went on to play major roles in films like “Inception,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and most recently “Flatliners.” Page also created, produces, and stars in the two-time Emmy nominated ground-breaking documentary series “Gaycation.” The series follows Page and her best friend Ian Daniel around the world as they explore LGBTQ cultures – including Washington D.C. during Trump’s inauguration, Orlando after the tragic Pulse Night Club shooting, Japan, Brazil, the deep South, France and Jamaica.

“The Umbrella Academy” series is based on the graphic novels of the same name created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The series will be produced by Universal Cable Productions. Steve Blackman will serve as executive producer and showrunner, with additional executive producers Bluegrass Television and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Way will serve as co-executive producer. The pilot script was adapted by Jeremy Slater.

Page is repped by WME, VIE Entertainment, and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine.
