Last month, the cast and crew of Netflix‘s The Umbrella Academy reunited to begin filming season 3. For the new episodes, Elliot Page is back with the Hargreeves clan as Vanya.

Now, Page has opened up about how filming for The Umbrella Academy has changed since publicly coming out as transgender and non-binary last year.

This month, Page has made history as the first openly transgender man to ever appear on the cover of Time magazine. In the new interview, Page talks about his transition and childhood memories of feeling uncomfortable in his body. As well, Page opens up about returning to the set of The Umbrella Academy.

When Page first learned about the character of Vanya, he instantly identified with her because of how detached she was from the rest of the world.

“I related to how much Vanya was closed off,” Page tells Time.

In just two seasons, viewers have already seen major growth in Vanya. After her suppressed powers took over and ultimately caused the apocalypse in season 1, Vanya manages to find her voice and control her powers in season 2. As a result, Vanya transforms from a character crushed by self-loathing into someone with more self-confidence than ever before.

Similarly, Page’s The Umbrella Academy co-workers have seen a big change in the actor since filming for season 3 began.

“It seems there’s a tremendous weight off his shoulders, a feeling of comfort,” showrunner Steve Blackman tells Time. “There’s a lightness, a lot more smiling.”

Page further tells Time that returning to the set of The Umbrella Academy has been validating. However, it’s also sometimes awkward as his co-workers adapt to his pronouns.

“It’s going to be an adjustment,” Page says on people addressing him with the wrong pronouns.

Elsewhere in the interview, Page talks about the struggles he faced after the success of Juno.

The film, which earned him BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, sent Page into a whole new caliber of fame. As a result, Page felt pressure to act and look a certain way in Hollywood.

Eventually, Page began suffering from depression, anxiety and panic attacks as he dealt with society’s expectations to appear feminine.

“[I didn’t know] how to explain to people that even though [I was] an actor, just putting on a T-shirt cut for a woman would make me so unwell,” Page says.

Now, since coming out as transgender and non-binary, Page has received numerous job offers for transgender-related projects. From directing to acting and producing, Page’s team has seen an increase in these offers since Page publicly came out in December. Ultimately, Page’s comfortability with his body has made him look forward to acting more than ever before.

“I’m really excited to act, now that I’m fully who I am, in this body,” Page says. “No matter the challenges and difficult moments of this, nothing amounts to getting to feel how I feel now.”

Page’s full interview with Time is available here and the cover can be seen below.

More on Elliot Page and The Umbrella Academy

Back in 2014, Page publicly came out as gay at Time To Thrive, a conference that promotes the welfare of LGBTQIA+ youth.

“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page said during Time To Thrive. “And because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

Since then, Page has heavily advocated for the LGBTQIA+ community over the years. Just last year, Page called out the Trump administration and the politicization of gay rights in America.

“It’s not a debate, whether Donald Trump is racist or not,” he told the Guardian. “Gay marriage is not a debate. And the media needs to stop claiming it is.”

Then, on Dec. 1, Page publicly came out as transgender and non-binary. In a detailed social media post, the actor thanked everyone for their support and the warmth he’s received from the LGBTQIA+ community.

“I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey,” Page said on social media. “I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.

I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place.

I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.”
