Ellen Page on Ellie Comparisons in The Last of Us: “I Guess I Should be Flattered That They Ripped Off my Likeness”

Just a few days ago, we let you know that when Naughty Dog originally showed off Ellie to the world and the Ellen Page comparisons popped up, “they didn’t see it,” but still rushed to change the design as much as they could to distance Ellie and Ellen.

Putting in her two cents on the matter, Ellen Page had an AMA on Reddit recently, saying:

I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness, but I am actually acting in a video game called Beyond Two Souls, so it was not appreciated.

Sticking with Beyond: Two Souls, she talked a tiny bit about it:

Making Beyond was an incredible experience. I think what David Cage is doing is really remarkable, the first of its kind and I feel grateful to be involved.


We did do our own motion capture. The suits are not that bad actually…it is sort of nice to not [worry] about wardrobe.

Willem is an incredible actor and I loved working with him.

Then, Ellen answered if she actually plays video games:

I played video games more when I was a kid. I had Sega Genesis and was a HUGE Sonic fan. I also love the NHL games and played them with my brother all time. Then I was super into Playstation and loved the FIFA games. I recently played my first video game in a while. I played the latest Tomb Raider and really enjoyed it, finished in about 12 hours.
