Emma switched preferred pronouns from ‘she/her’ to ‘she/it’ in 2021 and has since spoken out on the issue several times.

In a new interview with The Telegraph, they said: ‘I’m absolutely lucky to be dealing with this now and not 10 years ago. I know a lot of gay actors who took a long time to come out because they were worried about it, but I didn’t think about it.’

Emma added: ‘I don’t mind if people misinterpret my pronouns, that’s fine.

‘Just try it, then I’ll correct you where necessary and we’ll take steps forward along the way. It’s not going to happen overnight.”

It comes after Emma said earlier this week that they hoped awards shows like Oscars and BAFTAs introduce gender-neutral categories.

Emma insisted in a new interview that the awards, as they stand, are not “inclusive enough” and said the change they hoped would allow everyone to feel “recognised and represented”.

Emma said better representation within entertainment industry roles is needed to encourage “an urgency” around tackling the topic.

Emma won a Best Actress Golden Globe award for her performance as Princess Diana in series four of the hit Netflix drama, and is starring in two high-profile films this year, My Policeman and Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Speaking to the BBC Today program about the possibility of gender-neutral categories at major awards shows, Emma said: ‘I hope for a future where that happens.

“I think the categories are not inclusive enough at the moment. It’s about everyone feeling recognized and represented.’

Emma added that more representation was needed within entertainment industry roles to encourage “more urgency” to tackle the topic.

The Crown star asked, “When it comes to categories, should we be specific about whether you’re being nominated for a female or male role?

“You can praise and discuss the representation there, but the conversation should really be about more representation in the material itself, in the content that we see for non-binary people, for queer people, for trans people, because then I think that would a lot will change.

“As those roles emerge, which means more people and more actors playing those roles, I think there will be more urgency to answer these questions.”

Emma has publicly identified as non-binary since 2021 and has publicly shared their journey with their gender identity on social media.

The thespian told The Today Program, “Your gender identity has so much to do with how you feel and it’s tied to so much of how you want to be seen or seen by people and that can be very triggering or make you uncomfortable if you haven’t the feeling that you are seen as fair or correct.

“I think it was necessary for me to be open and honest about it, because otherwise I would have felt that I was being misunderstood.”

The movie star added that they weren’t worried that opening up about their gender identity would limit the kinds of roles they’d get in the future.

Emma explained, “I would never sacrifice integrity or honesty over work that I may or may not get,” they said.

“Being non-binary is in no way a rejection of femininity or my femininity. It’s kind of embracing that.

“I still want to play women. My experience on this earth has been a female experience — and now it’s kind of a very fluid experience.”

Emma is currently preparing to take the stage in an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, which was published in 1928 and explores gender identity.
