Elliot Page Insists Hollywood Still Has A Lack Of Representation For Trans People

The actor talks about being a non-binary transgender person in Hollywood.

Elliot Page came out as trans in 2020 after the second season of ‘The Umbrella Academy.’ The show’s creator, Steve Blackman, supported him throughout his transition. Page recently shared with TIME:

“Steve, the showrunner of ‘Umbrella,’ is actually one of the first people I came out to. I called him nervously and he was incredible. If anything, he was the one who was very insistent on immediately having it be a part of the show and supported me to be able to access the care I was hoping to get at that time.”

Lack Of Representation In Hollywood

The actor noted that Hollywood still falls short in trans representation while calling for more inclusion. The host questioned how his transition affected the roles offered to him, and he commented:

“I am realistic about the lack of representation for trans people. The lack of representation for trans masculine people, and I get offers for trans roles.”

He Shares His Experience Through Writing

Elliot Page made a name in the industry through roles in ‘Juno,’ the ‘X-Men’ franchise, and ‘Inception.’ He turned his focus more on writing after the transition:

“So much of my mind had been occupied by unhealthy, toxic thinking and now I have the space where my consciousness is just like flowing.”

The actor’s new independent feature film ‘Close to You’ will open in theaters on August 16.
