- Emma Corrin said it’s okay when people get their pronouns wrong, as long as they try hard.
- In an interview with The Telegraph, Corrin talked about being a non-binary actor in female roles.
- The actor said they correct people who get their pronouns wrong and move on.
Emma Corrin said he doesn’t care if people get their pronouns wrong as long as they “try”.
In an interview with The Telegraph’s Claire Allfree released on Saturday, the ‘The Crown’ star opened up about her experiences as a non-binary person. Corrin first changed their pronouns to her/them in July 2021, later crediting their role as Princess Diana on the hit drama as the catalyst for their coming out. The actor now uses them/their pronouns.
Corrin told The Telegraph they are forgiving when people bully them, as long as it shows they’re trying hard.
“I don’t care if people get my pronouns wrong, that’s fine. Try and I’ll correct you where needed and gradually we’ll make progress,” they said. “It’s not going to happen overnight.”
Corrin has also talked about being a non-binary actor playing traditionally female roles, such as Connie Reid in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’. The film will be released on December 2, according to IMDb.
“I may be non-binary, but most of my experience on the planet has been female. My gender identity now is not a rejection of that, but an embrace of it,” they said. “And I think Connie’s journey, whatever your sexuality or gender, speaks to a quest for liberation, for feeling — that idea that we shouldn’t put up with anything less than being in our bodies, and being allowed to to feel sexually and to be satisfied.”
The actor also opened up on the subject in an interview with BBC News on Friday, in which they said they hoped more non-binary and queer representation would lead to gender-neutral categories at awards ceremonies in the future.
“You can discuss awards and representation there, but really the conversation needs to be about having more representation in the material itself, in the content that we’re seeing for non-binary people, for queer people, for trans people, because then I I think it will change a lot,” they said.
After Corrin’s quote about gender-neutral awards was picked up by multiple outlets, the “My Policeman” star responded with an Instagram response the same day.
“…we are treading very delicate waters when it comes to the representation of gender in the media and when you reduce entire conversations to clickbait it is not only offensive but you run the risk of scaring people away from talking about anything and everything our community needs now more than ever is the knowledge that our openness and honesty will go untapped,” Corrin wrote.
