Elliot Page: ‘I knew I wanted to be a boy from the age of nine’

Transgender actor Elliot Page has said he “wanted to be a boy” from the age of nine.

Page also spoke about undergoing surgery and said he had already had a procedure on his top which had “completely transformed” his life.

Posting his cover image on Instagram, he wrote: “With deep respect for those who came before me, gratitude for those who have supported me and great concern for the generation of trans youth we must all protect, please join me and decry anti-trans legislation, hate and discrimination in all its forms.” 

Speaking about wanting to be a boy as a child, he told TIME: “I felt like a boy. I wanted to be a boy. I would ask my mom if I could be someday.”

However, after cutting his hair short aged nine, Page landed a role in Canadian TV film Pit Pony – a role that required a more feminine look.

Page said: “I became a professional actor at the age of 10 and pursuing that passion came with a difficult compromise,” he shared. “Of course I had to look a certain way.”

After landing his first major role in Pit Pony, Page’s rise to global stardom came via the hit 2007 movie Juno. He played a pregnant teenage and scored an Oscar nomination in the process.

He then starred in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Inception alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

Page said when he was young his mother, Martha, suggested he act more like a girl – thinking it was “best” for her child.
