Emma Corrin Supports Tommy Dorfman After She Comes Out as Transgender

The Crown star Emma Corrin has thrown her support behind 13 Reason Why's Tommy Dorfman, after she came out as transgender.

Dorfman, 29, made the revelation in an interview with Time, which was published on Thursday, as she also shared an announcement on Instagram.

And the screen star received enthusiastic support from fellow actress Corrin, 25, who reposted Dorfman's time shoot on her Instagram Story, as she wrote: "I AM SO PROUD OF YOU @TommyDorfman thank you for being YOU, for sharing this."

British actress Corrin, who indicates on her Instagram profile that she goes by the pronouns she/they, added: "We see you, we love you."

Corrin, who won acclaim for her portrayal of Princess Diana in The Crown, previously referred to herself as "queer" in an April Instagram post.

On July 5, she shared black and white photos of herself as she wrote about chest binders, which are routinely used to flatten breasts.

She wrote: "some time before I bought my first proper binder, messing around with @sirdavidsimon, we used boxing wrap, thanks for capturing this with me, very intimate, very new, very cool."

"It's all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that's ok! Embrace it. Bind safely, find what works for you," she added.

Dorfman, married to Peter Zurkuhlen, said in her interview with Time: "For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman—a trans woman."

She told trans novelist Torrey Peters: "It's funny to think about coming out, because I haven't gone anywhere. I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically."

"Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out," she continued. "Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy."

In the several months leading up to the Time interview Dorfman, who played Ryan Shaver on 13 Reasons Why, has been documenting her changing appearance.

Discussing while she opted against changing her name, Dorfman said: "I'm named after my mom's brother who passed a month after I was born, and I feel very connected to that name, to an uncle who held me as he was dying."

The Atlanta-born screen star went on: "This is an evolution of Tommy. I'm becoming more Tommy... I am actually myself."

"I've been living in this other version of coming out where I don't feel safe enough to talk about it, so I just do it," she said. "But I recognize that transitioning is beautiful. Why not let the world see what that looks like?"

"So I kept, on Instagram, a diaristic time capsule instead—one that shows a body living in a more fluid space," she added.

In announcing her transition on Instagram, Dorfman wrote on Thursday: "thrilled to reintroduce myself as the woman i am today. my pronouns are she/her."

She continued: "i'm especially grateful to every single trans person who walked this path, broke down barriers, and risked their lives to live authentically and radically as themselves before me. thank you to all the trans woman that showed me who i am, how to live, celebrate myself, and take up space in this world."

Dorfman received supportive comments from a host of celebrities, including Zoë Kravitz, Lily Allen, Kiernan Shipka, Michelle Visage, Lena Dunham, Stella Maxwell, Cara Delevingne, Jesse Tyler, Bella Thorne, and her 13 Reasons Why co-star Katherine Langford.
