Elliot Page Tells Seth Meyers ‘Umbrella Academy’ Showrunner Was Excited About Incorporating Actor’s Transition Into The Show

Elliot Page spoke to Seth Meyers on Late Night last night how The Umbrella Academy incorporated the actor’s own personal transition into Season 3 of the show, which premieres today on Netflix.

“With Steve Blackman, the showrunner of Umbrella,” Page said

“When we first talked about it he seemed really excited about incorporating it into the show.”

The duo brought in some help to make sure the show transitioned Page’s character

 who was known as Vanya in the first two seasons, to Viktor

 as he becomes known in Season 3, in a respectful and smooth way.

Page told Meyers that they brought on “an incredible writer, journalist, author Thomas Page McBee

who I met doing a miniseries called Tales of the City. He wrote an extraordinary book called Amateur

which I highly recommend everybody to read. He was the first trans man to box in Madison Square Garden

And his book and his work in general are so much about masculinity and what it means and exploring that

 Thomas came on board and helped out and I feel proud of it and excited for people to see it.”
