Ellen Page’s Net Worth And Her Salary For ‘The Umbrella Academy’
Actress and activist Ellen Page stars in a new Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy, about a family of superheroes. Though she’s been acting for a long time, this is her first starring role on a TV show. Here’s what we know about how much she makes for the gig, and her overall net worth.
How did Ellen Page get her start?
Page, who is Canadian, began acting when she was 10 years old. She rose to prominence for her roles in films such as Hard Candy, Whip It, and two movies in the X-Men franchise. Page was nominated for an Oscar for her leading role in Juno. She went on to appear in sci-fi thrillers such as Inception and Flatliners, as well as indie dramas like Tallulah and Freeheld, the latter of which she was also a producer on.
Page fights for LGBT rights
On Valentine’s Day in 2014, Page came out as a gay woman. Since then, she has used her platform to speak out on behalf of the LGBT community, and to shine a lot on many issues, including the large percentage of homeless teens in the community. While appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Page gave a powerful speech in which she addressed this epidemic, as well as the views of the current administration.
She spoke out about Chris Pratt’s church
Actor Chris Pratt went on The Late Show just days after Page, promoting his new film “The Lego Movie Part 2.” He spoke about the diet he is on through his church, which is based on part of the Bible, prompting Page to take to the internet and ask him how he feels about the church’s “infamously anti lgbtq” views.
Pratt, who has been seen at both Hillsong Church and the similarly-modeled Zoe Church in Los Angeles with his fiancee, Katherine Schwarzenegger, responded to Page’s claims. He denied that this is the case, saying, “I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”
Page plays Vanya Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy
Page’s new series, The Umbrella Academy, is based on a comic book series. The actress stars as Vanya Hargreeves, nicknamed “The White Violin.” Vanya is one of seven adopted children, and she is the only one who doesn’t have any superpowers. All 10 episodes of the first season are on Netflix.
How much does Ellen Page make for The Umbrella Academy?
It is unknown exactly what Page’s salary is for The Umbrella Academy. Netflix has recently spoken about how it determines salaries for its original series, which was called into question after it was revealed that The Crown star Claire Foy made less than her co-star Matt Smith, though she was the focal point of the show. Because Netflix is speaking out about this, hopefully Page and her fellow female cast members are making as much as their male counterparts.
Page’s net worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Page’s net worth is approximately $14 million. Given the length and prominence of her career, as well as her rising status, this is bound to increase in the coming years.
