Eddie Izzard Says She's Not Going To Be Actively Looking For Female Roles

Eddie Izzard suits up with a bowtie for the premiere of her new movie, Six Minutes to Midnight, held at De La Warr Pavilion on Monday (March 29) in Bexhill, England.

The movie, which was co-written by Eddie, centers young women who were sent to a finishing school in an English seaside town to learn the language and be ambassadors for a future looking National Socialist.

A teacher there sees what is coming and is trying to raise the alarm. But the authorities believe he is the problem.

The movie is out now, and streaming on Amazon Prime.

In a new interview with Huffington Post, Eddie revealed that she’s not actively seeking out female roles, following the reveal that she used she/her pronouns.

“It’ll probably still be male roles I’m doing in films,” Eddie said, adding that she doesn’t think she’ll look to pick up female roles.

Instead, Eddie is focused on writing other stories and knows there’s space for more trans representation.

“I think there is a transgender action hero type character, which I think should be coming out somewhere in the future,” she teases. “I always was a tomboy. I was a boy tomboy, now I’m a girl tomboy. I was always fighting, scrapping, running, jumping, climbing trees. The tomboy aspect of me hasn’t moved an inch.”
