Elliot Page has been thrust into the spotlight following his recent announcement, and fans everywhere have shown nothing but support for the star...

Netflix being one of them.

The streaming giants have just made a heartwarming announcement about his future with their hit series, The Umbrella Academy.

Now, Page rose to mainstream prominence from his native Canada in 2005 with the revenge thriller Hard Candy.

He was lavished with praise for his performance, even bagging the Austin Film Critics Association's Award for Best Actress.

And just 2 years later, he starred in a film we all know and love...

Juno, of course!

The indie flick saw Page receive an Academy Award nomination among several other accolades.

His other notable roles include Kitty Pryde in the X-Men franchise, Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Whip It!, and Sony’s reboot of Flatliners.

Page has also made the crossover into production over the years...

Producing and starring in flicks such as Tallulah and Freeheld. 

And last year...

He marked his directorial debut examining environmental racism faced by people of color, as per Variety.

Oh, and who can forget?

You may also recognize the star for his role in the Netflix smash hit The Umbrella Academy. 

Page is also a very prominent figure among LGBTQ+ fans...

And has long been an advocate for the community.

But yesterday...

Page enriched his legacy in a way that many didn't see coming.

He released a statement on social media to explain that he had come out as transgender, adding that he will be taking on the pronouns "he and they."

In the deeply personal essay, he began: "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here." "To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self."

He continued...

"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."

“I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer."

"And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. To all the trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse, and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you, and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better," Page continued.

He then asked for “patience" as he navigates his identity.

“My joy is real, but it is also fragile," he wrote “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared."

He continued...

“I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence. 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."

Page has already received so much love following his announcement...

From both celebrity friends and fans from all around the world.

And now...

Netflix has just announced what will be happening in regard to Elliot's role in The Umbrella Academy.

The streaming giant tweeted this in response to Elliot's coming out letter:

"So proud of our superhero! WE LOVE YOU ELLIOT! Can't wait to see you return in season 3!"

Netflix has also updated Elliot Page’s name on the credits for The Umbrella Academy.

Tales of the City, Flatliners, and Tallulah are also some of the credits that have been updated. IMDB has also changed his name.

Elliot will continue to play Vanya in The Umbrella Academy...

And there are no plans to change the character’s gender.

How exciting!

Congratulations, Elliot!
