Elliot Page recently revealed he was transgender via a statement on social media, and fans of The Umbrella Academy starting wondering what would happen with the Vanya Hargreeves character in the show. Would they recast? Would they kill her off? Well, it looks like Elliot Page is going to carry on playing the role, which is great news!
This news was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter who claimed that Elliot Page will still play the character on Netflix’s hit show for the foreseeable future. This is really good news for both the show and for the actor. I was a bit worried for a second, but if Netflix were really to get rid of her, that would have been PR suicide.
Vanya is one of the most interesting characters in The Umbrella Academy, and Season 2 really expanded her character even more. I also think Elliot Page is perfect in the role, so hopefully, the character will continue to be allowed to develop in the future.
Elliot Page will still play Vanya in The Umbrella Academy Season 3
Here’s what The Hollywood Reporter said about Elliot Page continuing to play Vanya Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy Season 3 and beyond:
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Page will continue the role of Vanya on the show.
As I stated above, this is really good news, and I’m also hoping that Elliot Page will continue to progress in his career. Page is a terrific actor, and we here at Small Screen fully support him and want to see more from the actor moving forward.
