On Tuesday, Pedro Pascal proudly supported her sister Lux as she came out publicly as a trans woman.
Lux, who was featured on the cover of Spanish magazine Ya, talked about her transition for the first time. The same photo was posted by Pascal on his Instagram with the caption: Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux.
This translates to “My sister, my heart, our Lux.”
The siblings have a loving relationship and Lux expressed that her brother had an important part in her transition.
She shared her experience of coming out to her brother over a call.
“When I officially told him about my transition through Facetime, he asked me how I felt… because I remember that he was worried,” said Lux. “I told him: ‘I’m happy.’ And his answer was: ‘Perfect, this is incredible.'”
In an interview with People Magazine she said, “He’s also an artist and has served as a guide for me. He was one of the first people to gift me the tools that started shaping my identity.”
Before her transition as a trans woman, the 28-year-old actress identified as non-binary.
“I had already been talking about it with my entire family, little by little, like coming out of the closet as non-binary for about three years,” she expressed. “But now it was much more, I can finally say that I am a woman.”
She is currently studying acting at the Juilliard School in New York City.
