Emma Corrin has been thinking about coming out to their family and feeling more “seen” when they mention “she/she”.
“The Crown” actor, 26, who rose to fame for their portrayal of Princess Diana, was candid about gender fluidity in a new interview with Vogue.
“I feel a lot more seen when I’m referred to as ‘she,’ but my closest friends will call me ‘she,’ and I don’t mind because I know they know me,” Corrin explained.
“I don’t think gender just feels fixed and I don’t know if it ever will be; there can always be some fluidity for me.”
They also appeared in a series of photos, including the August 2022 magazine cover, in which they wore a Louis Vuitton tank dress.
Dressing up was not without challenges for the British actor, however.
“I remember struggling with wearing bras in ‘Chatterley’ and as Marion, but it’s kinda hard because I’m not Emma, right?” they said, referring to their upcoming turn in “My Policeman” opposite Harry Styles.
“I’m an actor, and I have a job to do. My dresser and I really laughed when I put on these 60s bras,” they continued.
Corrin also noted that their family was very helpful when they came out as queer.
“I started dating a girl and told my mom, and then my little brother DMed me and said, ‘Hey, I wanted to welcome you because I’ve been bi for a long time,'” they said.
“The next generation is so much more relaxed. They find a way to express themselves that is less binary in a very organic way. While we are almost in the middle.”
Corrin first came out as a queer last April, writing on Instagram: “Your fave queer bride.”
They said they weren’t sure it was “the right thing to do.”
“I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do, but the feedback from people in the queer community has been amazing,” they said in ITV’s “Ganda Reports” last August.
“I think visibility is key with these things. My journey has been long and still has a long way to go. I think we’re so used to defining ourselves.”
They continued, “That’s how society works within these binaries, and it’s taken me a long time to realize I exist somewhere in between, and I’m still not sure where that is.”
