Williams, 82, will be reprising his role as Calrissian for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December. Ahead of his return to the franchise, he spoke to Esquire about his gender expression.

He later elaborated on his pronouns, explaining: “I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

Jonathan Kasdan, co-screenwriter for Solo: A Star Wars Story, revealed last year that there was “a [sexual] fluidity” to Calrissian’s portrayal by Williams and, in recent years, Donald Glover.
