Supergirl actress Nicole Maines has opened up about her life growing up in an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 21-year-old, who is the first trans superhero on TV, said she began to identify as female at a young age.
“I really started thinking something wasn’t right. My case was kind of unique because I have an identical twin brother and so growing up with him, he was identifying with all these male things and he was feeling very comfortable in his body,” she said.
“As soon as I could, I tried to voice to my parents that something’s off.”
