The Umbrella Academy star, formerly know as Ellen Page, shared a moving Twitter statement on Tuesday as he came out as trans.

Page said he could not "begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self".

The Canadian-born actor wrote: "I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer."

He continued: "The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared. I'm scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the 'jokes' and of violence."

Page also addressed discrimination towards trans people in the Twitter statement.

"To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture. The statistics are staggering", Elliot added.
