The trans actor stars in the newest season of the superhero/time-travelling Netflix show and spoke with Seth Myers about merging his real-life situation with that of his TV series counterpart.

Elliot Page has shared his ups and down about coming out as trans, but one major highlight was being able to incorporate his transition into his character's journey in 'The Umbrella Academy'.

The 10-episode third season of the show hits Netflix today, and the star joined the late-night chat show to talk about his new character development this season. The actor also shared some thoughts on his life since making the transition.

He said that it's "unfortunate" that he has been on the receiving end of backlash from people, some in-person verbal encounters, just for being more true to himself. He said: "I feel like it’s one of those things where it’s so unfortunate, because it’s like, we’re all on the same team here, you know?

"Whether you’re trans, non-binary, gender-nonconforming, cis, we all have these expectations, and these, sort of, limits and constraints because of people’s obsession with the binary, and how we’re all supposed to live our lives."

He added a wish as to how the world could come together, someday: "To me, it would be so special for us to all be able to connect and to talk about how similar we are in all of our journeys."

He tells Seth that he feels a degree of "joy", of "presence", a way that he "never thought possible for a long, long time".

Touching on the latest season of the Netflix show, Elliot Page also spoke about how 'The Umbrella Academy' TV creator Steve Blackman gave him the opportunity to share part of his real-life story with his TV counterpart, merging reality with fiction. The third season of the superhero show showcases Vanya Hargreeves transitioning into Viktor in a touching way, with the character having to talk with his family about the transition.

Page ended the interview by saying: "It’s improved my life drastically and I hope, you know, I hope maybe people who do have an issue with me can maybe try and hear that, or embrace that on some level."
