Ian said: "I remember Elliot Page, in one of the 'X-Men', sat as close as we are now," Ian went on to explain. "And I had to speak when they’d finished, and I couldn’t hear what they were saying. Nobody could hear what they were saying. So, I said, 'Look, if you can’t speak up, would you mind when you’re finished speaking, just dropping your hand so I know when you’ve finished speaking?' And then they came out years later and suddenly you couldn’t stop them talking. You heard everything".

Mckellen also went on to add that he was "so happy" for Page's transition.

Page posted a photo to Instagram just before Christmas thanking everyone for their support with his transition.

 

 

In the caption page wrote: "from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your love and support has been the greatest gift.
Stay safe. Be there for each other.
If you are able, support @transanta and @translifeline
See you in 2021
Xoxo Elliot.

 

We wish Elliot the very best!
