Tommy Dorfman has announced that she is transgender.
The 13 Reasons Why star shared with novelist Torrey Peters in an interview for TIME Magazine: "For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman—a trans woman."
She added: "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."
She said: "Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out.
"Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy."
Tommy, who also starred in Jane the Virgin, said she's "no longer interested in playing 'male' characters".
She's since been given her first role as a woman in Lena Dunham's upcoming film Sharp Stick. She's also set to direct an adaptation of Mason Deaver's I Wish You All the Best and is starring this fall in the Channel 4 limited series Fracture.
Tommy took to Instagram on Thursday adding: "thrilled to reintroduce myself as the woman i am today. my pronouns are she/her. [sic]"
