Luke, I Am Your (Little) Father
Page played Reed Hellstrom on “The Young and the Restless” starting in 2009. He is Victoria’s son with TJ Hellstrom played by her off-screen husband, Thad Luckinbill. Reed left Genoa City in 2016, was SORAS-ed, and recently returned as a surly teenager. He is now played by Tristan Lake Leabu.
To non-Y&R and soap fans, Page is best known for his portrayal of a pint-sized Darth Vader in a Volkswagen ad. The commercial appeared during the 2011 Super Bowl. But before that, a longer version debuted on YouTube and garnered eight million views before it’s television airing.
A Full Life of Ahead of Him
Page was born with a rare heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. He had a pacemaker installed to ensure his heart continues to beat at regular intervals. His doctors told People magazine in 2015 that they expect him to be able to lead a normal life with proper care for the condition. Fortunately, he continues to get just that.
