Star Wars actor Pedro Pascal celebrated his sister Lux on February 10, 2021 after she came out as transgender in an edition of Ya, a Spanish language magazine.
She was formerly known as Lucas Balmaceda but revealed she decided to change her name after doing some soul-searching during lockdown.
She said she realised she had been so focused on her professional career and finishing her acting studies that she not dedicated time to growing as a person.
She said: “The concept of ‘trans’ has diversified which opened my mind and I thought to myself, I can try this now.”
Lux revealed she started receiving hormone treatment in July and is now studying acting at Juilliard in New York City.
“My transition has been something that’s very natural for everyone in my family,” Lux said in the feature, translated from Spanish. “It’s almost something that they expected to happen.”
