Star Wars actor reveals he is gender fluid

Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams has revealed he is gender fluid as he opened up about his identity.

The 82-year-old American, who is best known for playing Lando Calrissian in the films The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi, said he sees himself as masculine and feminine.

He added he was “not afraid to show that side” of himself.

Williams, who will reprise the famous Star Wars role on the big screen later this month in The Rise Of Skywalker, said: “I never tried to be anything except myself.”

He said: “I think of myself as a relatively colourful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously…And you see I say ‘himself’ and herself’, because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine.
