Following a press release, the Umbrella Academy actor announced that Ellen Page is no longer. From now on, it will be Elliot Page to shine on the big and small screen!
Elliot Page has all of the support from Netflix
It is full of emotion and transparency that actor Elliot Page published his trans on social networks yesterday. The Juno and X-Men star then took the opportunity to send a message of peace and continue his fight against harassment of the LGBTQ + community.
The news of his appearance was particularly well received, and a number of personalities were quick to express their support for the actor. Among all of these news items, Netflix found its own:
So proud of our superhero. WE LOVE YOU, ELLIOT! I can’t wait to see you in season 3.
As you will understand, in addition to this demonstration of love, the platform uses this message to formalize the return of Elliot in the Umbrella Academy series, in which he plays Vanya Hargreeves. As the icing on the cake, Netflix took matters into its own hands and rushed to change the actor’s first name across all content.
This news was particularly well received by the American support group for LGBTQ + artists. She recalled that “transgender actors can and must play both transgender and cisgender characters. Elliot must be able to play all kinds of roles in the future.” .
The showbiz world welcomes Elliot with open arms
Let the 33 year old actor calm down, he is far from being alone in his struggle. The production company Searchlight Pictures, behind the film Juno, which made Elliot Page famous, wanted to support him on Twitter.
