“I think if I hadn’t booked that job I would have transitioned a lot sooner,” she said.

“I think because of my work being so tied to my body and face and identify, or whatever [a character] identified as it delayed some of my growth and some of my maturation in my twenties,” the actress added.

But then Dorfman went on to talk about her personal transition, in which she reintroduced herself as a trans woman.

“Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy,” she said at the time.

According to The Independent, Dorfman confessed that her transition period was in fact delayed.

Because of the demands of working hard to crack Hollywood.
