"Umbrella Academy" Plans To Keep Elliot Page's Character A Woman

In case you missed it, yesterday Netflix’s Umbrella Academy and Juno star, Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, addressed his social media followers to reintroduce himself as a transgender man. His announcement immediately raised questions as to what would become of his Umbrella Academy character — a woman. 

According to Variety, Page’s character, Vanya Hargreeves, will continue to be played as a cisgender woman. So, ultimately, no changes will be made on that front. They will, however, be making an adjustment to Page’s name in the credits, to support his transition. IMDb already changed his name on their site from Ellen to Elliot as well. “The process of updating Elliot’s name in the metadata across all titles he is involved with that are available to watch on the streaming service,” an insider revealed.
