Love to See It

The Internet Met Viktor Hargreeves This Week and It’s Love at First Sight

If you don’t know, there’s this amazing actor named Elliot Page (he/they). The multi-talented Canadian actor has appeared in multiple films, such as Juno, Inception, Freeheld, several X-Men films, and starred in tv shows, like Tales of the City and The Umbrella Academy. He’s also produced various films and even directed a documentary on environmental racism called There’s Something in the Water. 

Did I also mention that Elliot has numerous accolades and award nominations under their belt?

In 2020, they came out to the public as trans in 2020 and have been living their best life ever since. 

I mean look at the material! Get into this glow!

One of their latest projects is season 3 of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. The sci-fi, action series stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min as super-powered siblings, whose adoptive father trains them to become an excellent crime-fighting team, but a dysfunctional family. 

Most recently, Elliot posted on Twitter about their character Viktor Hargreeves. 

Elliot’s post, as well as articles from multiple outlets, confirm that Elliot’s character will come out as trans in the new season. While there’s still a long way to go for on-screen representation for trans actors, fans of Elliot and The Umbrella Academy can celebrate a trans actor being able to transition alongside their character.  

Naturally, the internet went wild and plenty of folks are head over heels in love with Elliot’s announcement.

There are those who have their “concerns” about the character’s development and how it fits canonically with the source material for the show. But thankfully, many are quick to combat that and pour out more love for Elliot and Viktor.

All we have to say is “keep being the shining light that you are, Elliot Page!”
