Netflix has announced that Elliot Page will continue playing Vanya Hargreeves on The Umbrella Academy. Page, the top-billed actor on the show, came out as a non-binary transgender person on Tuesday in a social media post. Page stated,

“I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” Page wrote. “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”

The Hollywood Reporter added that Netflix is in the process of updating Page’s name on all titles on the service in which he’s involved. Netflix also expressed support for Page in a tweet:

So proud of our superhero! WE LOVE YOU ELLIOT! Can't wait to see you return in season 3! 🎻 🖤
