Ellen Page stars on The Umbrella Academy as Vanya Hagreeves, a meek violinist who evolved into a force to be reckoned with over the course of the show’s first season. Page gave a compelling, nuanced performance as Vanya in the first season, and her portrayal in season 2 was even better.
Vanya started off the series thinking she was the only one of her siblings without any powers, but viewers quickly learned that this was not the case. In fact, Vanya was always the most powerful in the family.
Her powers to turn sound waves into energy definitely came in clutch during the second season and her romance with Sissy (Marin Ireland) was super sweet. Speaking of romance, Ellen Page is a married woman in real life.
We’re here to tell you about Ellen Page’s talented wife, Emma Portner!
Ellen Page wife
Page has been married to Canadian choreographer and dancer Emma Portner since January of 2018. The pair met through Instagram, of all things! Portner is an accomplished artist in her own right, performing at prestigious venues like Jacob’s Pillow, New York City Center, and The Guggenheim Museum. Ellen and Emma reside in New York City.
As reported by ABC News, Portner choreographed and starred in Justin Bieber’s music video for his song “Life Is Worth Living.”
Even though her wife is super famous, Portner doesn’t mind the attention it brings the couple. Here’s what she told The Cut about how Ellen Page’s fame affects their marriage:
"It’s quite crazy. But if anything, I’m happy for it. We try to hold hands in public. I try to join her at movie premieres. If we were a straight couple, I don’t think we’d push it so much. But it’s a chance for queerness to be out in the open."
