Actor Pedro Pascal has shown his sister Lux Pascal great support after coming out as a transgender woman. Lux starred on the cover of the Spanish language “Ya” magazine.
Pedro Pascal proudly shared the magazine cover of his sister on Instagram. Lux looks flawlessly beautiful on the cover as she opened up about her journey for the first time.
Pedro introduced Lux to the world on Tuesday, the day she came out as a trans woman. In his caption, the “Narcos” star wrote a heartfelt message for his younger brother.
“Mi hermana, mi corazon, nuestra Lux," he wrote in his native Spanish language. The message translates to, "my sister, my heart, our Lux."
As the cover star, 28-year-old Lux debuted her new look, rocking curly brunette hair with small ring earrings. With her beautiful brown eyes, she posed in an up-close shot in a sunset feel type of setting.
The backdrop shows trees behind as their location was in an outdoorsy setting. Lux rocked a natural make up look. The actor had her one hand across her arm as she gazed at the camera.
Fans on the comments section were in awe of her first-ever magazine cover. One user said, "How stunning, how absolutely beautiful! I am so proud and so happy. What a queen."
According to People, Lux revealed in the interview that she started receiving her hormone treatment in July last year. “My transition has been very natural for everyone in my family,” she reportedly said in the feature.
“He is also an artist and has served as a guide for me. He was one of the first people to gift me the tools that started shaping my identity.”
Lux disclosed that she was previously open to her family about being non-binary. However, she realized that being female is ideal for her; hence she chose to transition.
Not shunning other people’s identity, she said, “I still advocate for non-binary identities to have a space in society." Lux also talked about the importance of trans activists, sharing that the world needs good advocates for the LGBTQ community.
Lux is currently studying acting at Julliard School of New York City. Lux, born Lucus Balmaceda, is following in her brother's footsteps, who is a TV star.
Pedro was born in Chile - he and his family fled their homeland in the 1970s as political refugees. The 45-year-old spent time in Denmark, Southern California, and Texas before relocating to New York City at age 18 to pursue theater.
