In his coming out announcement, Elliot had admitted he felt “fragile” and “scared” about sharing his truth with the world, so the fact that this news was overall received with love, acceptance and support is a wonderful thing.
“I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer,” Elliot said in his original statement. “And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. to all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you, and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better.”
Elliot will continue to play the lead role in the Netflix Original, The Umbrella Academy, as Vanya.
So proud of our superhero! WE LOVE YOU ELLIOT! Can’t wait to see you return in season 3! 🎻 🖤
