Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana in Netflix’s The Crown, has shared that their pronouns are she/they in their Instagram bio.
Fans noticed the addition of pronouns after the actor posted a series of photos of themselves wearing a makeshift chest binder.
In the post, Corrin talks about their experience binding their chest, and said that they now use a chest binder from gc2b, a trans-owned binder manufacturer.
They wrote: “Some time before I bought my first 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.”
Emma tagged the photographer Daniel W. Fletcher and gc2b in the post.
Binders are often used by trans and non-binary people to flatten their breast tissue. The Transgender Equality Network in Ireland (TENI) recommend using a binder that fits appropriately, instead of duct tape, ace bandages or a binder that is too small. A document outlining the safe use of binders is available on the organisation’s website.
Fans took to the comments section to congratulate Emma Corrin, and to thank them for sharing their journey.
One wrote: “Amazing! I just bought my first binder. Journey on.”
Another said: “I love you so much I’m so proud of you!”
The addition of she/they pronouns to Emma’s Instagram bio comes just a few months after they referred to themselves as “queer”.
In April, the actor posted a photo of themselves in a white wedding gown.
In the caption, they wrote: “ur fave queer bride.”
For their performance as Princess Diana, Corrin won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama. Elizabeth Debicki will take over the role for the show’s final seasons.
