Elliot Page is giving audiences a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes discussions that led to his “Umbrella Academy” character coming out as transgender. While appearing Tuesday on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” Page discussed how life has changed for them, personally and professionally, since announcing they are trans in December 2020. “What I want to focus on right now and has been so extraordinary is the degree of joy that I feel,” Page told Meyers. According to the Oscar-nominee, “Umbrella Academy” showrunner and “wonderful person” Steve Blackman “seemed really excited” to incorporate Page’s trans identity into the plot of Season 3, which premiered Wednesday on Netflix. “That’s obviously a big component and part of my life and a beautiful thing to experience now,” Page said.
