Elliot Page is back on the set of Umbrella Academy for the first time since appearing as Trans
Elliot Page was pictured back on the set of Umbrella Academy for the first time since the actor appeared as Trans last December.
The 34-year-old actor filmed an outdoor scene on season three of the hit Netflix show in Hamilton, Canada on Tuesday with co-star Emmy Raver-Lampman, who plays Allison Hargreeves.
Last week, Elliot teased a return to the show on Instagram by posting a mirror selfie that also featured the show’s logo on a piece of paper in what appeared to be his dressing room.

Elliot had previously reported on the return to work in February, days after six cast members were granted a massive raise when they banded together to reach out to Netflix’s supervisors with demands for salary negotiations after the show went on for another season was.
Page – best known for his role in teen drama Juno – announced in December that he was transgender and that his pronouns were “him and her”.
Shortly after his announcement, Netflix confirmed that he would be staying at Umbrella Academy in his role as Vanya Hargreaves, a cisgender lesbian, a role he has played for two seasons.

While many praised Netflix for the decision, wondering if showwriters were going to transgender Vanya’s character, others questioned and shared their confusion. Some fans have called it “political correctness gone insane” that Elliot will continue to play a female character despite coming out as a transgender person.
The show was a huge hit for Netflix, and the second season topped Nielsen’s first streaming rankings in September.
David Castaneda, Aidan Gallagher, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Justin Min and Robert Sheehan all approached the streaming service and pushed for higher paychecks in February.

According to Variety, each of the actors will earn more than $ 200,000 per episode as part of the renegotiation as part of the renegotiation.
Elliot also reportedly received a raise but was not involved in the negotiations as they had a separate contract that earned a higher rate than the show’s star.
The Umbrella Academy is based on the comics of the same name created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá and published by Dark Horse Comics.
Action! Elliot Page shared a snippet of Instagram on the back of a director’s chair with the show’s logo on it in February to announce, “Omg, we’re back.”
The actor, who said last month he had known he was a boy since childhood, pondered how it was accepted as a “tomboy” to be a “tomboy” before puberty – but when he hit puberty , it was less so and had wearing girls clothes made him “sick” during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In fact, when promoting his 2007 breakout film Juno, not only could he express the level of pain I was in, and he couldn’t even take photos of himself in the vintage Jean-Louis Scherrer dress watch that he wore the Oscars red carpet the following year when he was nominated for Best Actress.
Years later, Page admitted that he “just lost it” when his manager showed off three dresses he could wear to Inception’s Paris premiere in 2010 and “broke down” in what was likely a “panic attack” when he came back from beyond party.
