Early life and education

Paige was born in West Hartford, Connecticut. He graduated from Boston University School of Theatre with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree summa cum laude.[1]


Best known for his role as Emmett Honeycutt on Showtime's hit series Queer as Folk, Paige's other television credits include Will & Grace, Time of Your Life, Girlfriends, Caroline in the City, American Dad!, Related, Grey's Anatomy, The Closer and Without a Trace. His first audition in Los Angeles earned him a guest-starring role on Suddenly Susan.

Paige spent summer 2004 starring in his feature directorial debut, Say Uncle, alongside Kathy Najimy, Anthony Clark, Melanie Lynskey, Lisa Edelstein and Gabrielle Union. Other film credits include Don McKellar's Childstar with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Dave Foley, Showtime's Our America (which debuted at Sundance in 2002), indie Pop and the award-winning shorts The Four of Us and The Shooting.

An accomplished stage actor, Paige has appeared at major regional theatres throughout the country, most notably in world premieres at La Jolla Playhouse, Portland Center Stage, and Playwrights Horizons. He has performed nearly every genre of play, from the Greeks to Shakespeare to contemporary American work. Plays on his resume include A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Rivals, Secret Agents, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Pantophobia, his two-man show written and performed with Abraham Higginbotham.

On February 6, 2013, it was announced that The Fosters, a show that Paige created along with Bradley Bredeweg, and produced by Jennifer Lopez and through production company, Nuyorican Productions was picked up by the ABC Family. The series follows the lives of the Foster family, an interracial lesbian couple who are married and raising biological and adoptive children together.[2][3] The series began airing on June 3, 2013.[4]
