In a new interview with Time, 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman reintroduced herself as a transgender woman.
The 29-year-old actress told the outlet that she has been privately identifying and living as a woman for the last year and keeping a “diaristic time capsule” on Instagram that “shows a body living in a more fluid space.”
She said, “I’m not changing my name. I’m named after my mom’s brother who passed a month after I was born, and I feel very connected to that name, to an uncle who held me as he was dying. This is an evolution of Tommy. I’m becoming more Tommy.”
