Re: Ellen Page Calls Out ND For Ripping Off Her Likeness!

Jun 25, 2013

They motion captured the voice acrtress for this. The only reason they appear kind of similar is because of the ponytail that Ellen Page had in Juno. The name draws people in the wrong direction though. ND did recognize that Ellie looked a little too much like her and made changes but there's no reason to scrap the whole character.

It's funny because until just now I had no idea who she was. Maybe this will help her popularity. She should thank ND, now me and like 10 of my friends know who she actually is because of this game and the fuss over her likeness.

I highly recommend you watch the movie "Hard Candy" then.

Great flick. It's where I first noticed her.

 

And she is already pretty popular, after appearing in "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Inception."

But, my favorite roles of her's are "Whip It" and "Hard Candy."

Ellie DOES look like Ellen Page. In fact, the first time I saw a trailer of TLOU, I thought, wow this girl is modeled after Ellen Page. Consider Beyond is coming out this year too, I was like, ok, so every game's girl has to look like her now? (joking) LOL


But the mannerism, the body and face. I totally think EP looks like Ellie when she was 14. Smiley Tongue

On Reddit, Page said the initial similarities between herself and The Last of Us' Ellie were "not appreciated" because she was also cast as Jodie Holmes in Beyond: Two Souls, which is due out for PlayStation 3 in October 2013.

 

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

Isn't this reply of her based on the first look of Ellie rather than the final one ?

 

Does look that way to me, and she says "it" was not appreciated, guess it would refer to Quantic Dream as a whole rather than just her.

 

And while the first look of Ellie did look like her, the final one doesn't look so much like Page to me, but sure they're both short white girl with dark hair.

There are some similarities to Juno (not Ellen specifically) as in dress code and attitude but that's more to credit Ellen's acting than anything else. There's lots of teenage girls like Juno and Ellie.

Wasnt DC first...

I'd love a version of TLOU where Ellie was more like Boltie from "Super"... Smiley Happy

 

Actually, no, maybe that would be scarier than the game we got!

The final version of Ellie looks nothing like Ellen.

the older version did look almost exactly like Ellen Page. I'm sure Naughty Dog recognized that and then changed her looks to look a little more like Ashley.

 

The mannerisms are pretty much like Ellen Page in Juno, and some of her other stuff... but it doesn't really matter because Ellie needed that type of character to survive in TLOU.
