Actor Elliot Page is back at work filming season 3 of the hugely popular Netflix show The Umbrella Academy.
Since coming out as transgender last year, Elliot has been very candid about his journey and has received widespread support across the board. He took this selfie amid reports that all the cast have had pay hikes due to the series being so popular.
The producers of the show were some of the first to express their pride at Page’s decision although some fans expressed confusion about how he was going to continue to play the role of cisgender lesbian Vanya Hargreaves.
The show is based on a comic so really they can do anything and the importance of having a popular character live their truth outweighs any sort of ‘confusion’ people may have.
