Early Life and Career Beginnings
Paige grew up in Los Angeles, and as a child she was quickly exposed to the entertainment industry. At the age of six, she was already being cast in roles on television, and had one of her first notable appearances when joining the cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” in which she had a minor role, and starred Will Smith in a fictionalized version of himself as a street-wise teenager sent to live with his wealthy relatives in Bel Air after getting into a fight. There he has to adjust to his new life, and the lifestyle of his relatives.
She would go on to star in the sitcom “Evening Shade”, which ran from 1991 to 1994 and starred Burt Reynolds as a former professional football player returning to rural small town life in Evening Shade, Arkansas to help coach his high school football team which is in a losing streak.
After appearing in “The Santa Clause”, she appeared in numerous other film projects. In 1997, she became a part of “Mad City”, a thriller film starring John Travolta and Dustin Hoffman, and then in the film “Milo”. However, in 1999, she suddenly stopped acting, and had her last acting project during that year, in an episode of the hit television show “Ally McBeal”.
There was a subsequent report that Paige returned to school, and was attending the University of California, Berkeley. There were further reports that after completing school, she went on to focus on business and became a business executive at a major retail corporation. Though specific details about her current career are unknown, the media doesn’t really give that much attention to her anymore.
Social Media and Personal Life
Due to the lack of coverage, no one knows if she is in a relationship, or is already married with a family. In the meantime, her character Judy the Elf has become an icon on the internet, being consistently mentioned by fans of the film as well as fans of the character. She has memes, quotes and pictures, showcasing her as Judy the Elf in websites such as Tumblr. Many sources believe that she is unlikely to come back to acting. Despite the success of several of her projects, she never really had a role that made her a star, but also it is common for many child actors to no longer pursue acting once they become adults, for a variety of reasons.
