The news broke yesterday that X-Men: The Last Stand star Elliot Page has come out as trans, and the actor made it clear in an emotional social media post that his pronouns are now he/him and they/them. Understandably, many people have wondered what that means for his role in Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, in which Page plays the female Vanya Hargreeves. 

It's now been confirmed (via Variety) that Vanya will continue to be depicted as female in the small screen comic book adaptation, with the non-binary, transgender Page still in the role.

"Trans actors can and do play both trans and cisgender characters," GLAAD Director of Transgender Media Nick Adams said in a statement to the trade. "I’m sure Elliot will continue to be brilliant in Umbrella Academy and many different types of roles in the future."

It's also been revealed that Netflix is in the process of updating the streaming service so that any roles previously credited to "Ellen Page" will now read "Elliot Page." 

The Twitter accounts for both Netflix and The Umbrella Academy also responded to Page:
