Variety is reporting that Elliot Page, who came out as trans this week, will continue playing the role of Vanya on the hit Netflix superhero series "The Umbrella Academy."

"Vanya is a cisgender woman whose superpower involves unleashing force through the use of sound. There are no plans to change the character's gender, insiders told Variety," the publication writes, adding, "Netflix is also in the process of updating Page's name in the metadata across all titles he is involved with that are available to watch on the streaming service, another insider said. Those changes should start to be reflected throughout Tuesday."

IMDb has already updated Page's name.

On Tuesday, the Oscar-nominated "Juno" actor took to Instagram to share a moving post coming out as a trans. Click here to read his post.
