Fashion-plate actor Tommy Dorfman, best known for playing Ryan Shaver on the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, has come out as a trans woman in a lengthy interview for Time.
The chat with novelist Torrey Peters begins forthrightly:
We’re talking today to discuss my gender. For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman — a trans woman.
Dorfman will not change her name, just her pronouns, after having medically transitioned, and stresses that she isn't interested in blowing up her past.
She will next be seen in the Lena Dunham film Sharp Stick — her first project in which she will be playing a female role.
