Here's What's Happening With Elliot Page's 'Umbrella Academy' Role Now

Elliot Page bravely came out as transgender on Tuesday (December 1), and now fans are wondering about the actor’s role in the popular Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy.

According to a new report from Variety, nothing’s going to change.

“Vanya is a cisgender woman whose superpower involves unleashing force through the use of sound. There are no plans to change the character’s gender, insiders told Variety,” the outlet reported.

Elliot “will continue to play the role of Vanya Hargreeves.”

Already, there are some major changes happening across social media and online: Elliot‘s credited name has been updated on The Umbrella Academy’s IMDB page.

Netflix is also in the process of updating Elliot‘s name in the metadata across all titles, according to the report.

“Trans actors can and do play both trans and cisgender characters. I’m sure Elliot will continue to be brilliant in Umbrella Academy and many different types of roles in the future,” GLAAD’s Nick Adams said in a statement to the outlet.

All of these celebrities have voiced their support for Elliot Page.
