The cast of the Netflix hit Umbrella Academy have offered their love and support to Elliot Page after he came out as trans...

                                  The actor posted the heartfelt statement to social media yesterday...

                                  And, ever since, he has been surrounded by an outpouring of love - especially from his Umbrella Academy co-stars.

                                  Now, Page first rose to mainstream prominence from his native Canada in 2005 with the revenge thriller, Hard Candy..

                                  He was lavished with praise for his performance and even bagged an Austin Film Critics Association's Award.

                                  Just 2 years later, he then starred in a film we all know and love...

                                  Juno, of course!

                                  The indie flick saw Page receive an Academy Award nomination among several other accolades.

                                  His other notable roles include Kitty Pryde in the X-Men franchise, Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Whip It!, and Sony’s reboot of Flatliners.

                                  Page has also made the crossover into production.

                                  Producing and starring in flicks such as Tallulah and Freeheld.?

                                  And last year...

                                  He marked his directorial debut examining environmental racism faced by people of color, as per Variety.

                                  Oh, and who can forget?

                                  You may also recognize the star for his most recent role in the Netflix smash hit, The Umbrella Academy.?

                                  But, putting his acting credits to one side, Page is also a prominent figure among LGBTQ+ fans...

                                  And has long been an advocate for the community. And now, he has further enriched his legacy with an announcement made yesterday.

                                  Page released a statement on social media, coming out as transgender.

                                  In a deeply personal essay, he began: “Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here."

                                  "To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey."

                                  "I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self."

                                  He continued:

                                  "I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society."

                                  “I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer."

                                  "And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. To all the trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse, and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you, and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better," Page continued.

                                  He then asked for “patience" as he navigates his identity.

                                  “My joy is real, but it is also fragile," he wrote “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared."

                                  He continued:

                                  “I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence. To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture."

                                  Page referred to at least forty trans people have been murdered in the US alone in 2020.

                                  As well as directly addressing the likes of Donald Trump: “The political leaders who work to criminalize trans health care and deny our right to exist." “You have blood on your hands," he added.

                                  He continued.

                                  “You unleash a fury of vile and demeaning rage that lands on the shoulders of the trans community, a community in which 40 per cent of trans adults report attempting suicide. Enough is enough. You aren’t being cancelled, you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we don’t be silent in the face of your attacks."

                                  Since posting his message on Twitter and Instagram...

                                  Page has received an outpouring of love from fans, celebs, and co-stars alike.

                                  Nick Adams, GLAAD’s Director of Transgender Media, was one of the first to speak out since Page released his heartfelt statement.

                                  “Elliot Page has given us fantastic characters on-screen and has been an outspoken advocate for all LGBTQ people. He will now be an inspiration to countless trans and non-binary people. All transgender people deserve the chance to be ourselves and to be accepted for who we are. We celebrate the remarkable Elliot Page today."

                                  And his The Umbrella Academy co-stars have also rallied around him.

                                  Tom Hopper said he was "proud" of Elliot, and called him "family."

                                  Justin H. Min also sent his love...

                                  On Twitter, he wrote: "Welcome to the fam, Elliot."

                                  Showrunner, Steve Blackman, also showed his support for the star.

                                  As well as Emmy Raver-Lampman who wrote that she loved Page "so much."

                                  The love didn't end there...

                                  Marin Ireland, who plays Sissy on the smash hit show, told him she loves him, while Jordan Claire Robbins branded the actor "amazing."

                                  T.J. McGibbon, who plays young Vanya, also sent the actor some love.

                                  As did Eden Cupid, who plays young Allison.

                                  And, of course, the official The Umbrella Academy account, as well as Netflix itself, also spoke out.

                                  "So proud of our superhero."
