Redmayne also stood up for her “trans friends and colleagues” who “face discrimination on a daily basis,” adding, “Likewise, there continues to be a horrific torrent of abuse against trans people online and around the world that is devastating. ”
In June, Redmayne publicly disagreed with Rowling’s lengthy statement on trans rights. He said: “As someone who has worked with both JK Rowling and members of the trans community, I wanted to make it clear where I am. I don’t agree with Jo’s comments. Trans women are women, trans men are men, and non-binary identities are valid. ”
Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have also expressed their disagreement.
