Billy Dee Williams Embraces Gender Fluidity

In an interview with Esquire about reprising the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Billy Dee Williams discusses how he has embraced gender fluidity using him and her pronouns.

“I never tried to be anything except myself,” Williams said. “I think of myself as a relatively colourful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.

“You see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself’, because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,” the actor later added. “I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”
