Emma Corrin has made history as the first openly non-binary person to appear on the cover of the American edition of Vogue magazine.

The 26-year-old appears on the front of the August 2022 issue wearing a baseball cap paired with a gold vest.

“My grin really says it all! a huge honour to be your August cover,” the actor wrote on Instagram.

Best known for their role as Diana, Princess of Wales on The Crown, Corrin quietly updated their pronouns on Instagram last year and now goes by ‘they/them’.

“I feel much more seen when I’m referred to as ‘they,’ but my closest friends, they will call me ‘she,’ and I don’t mind, because I know they know me,” they told the fashion magazine.

Corrin also opened up about their personal relationships, stating that they “like people” and do not limit who they are attracted to by labels.

“My first date with a girl, they were like, Oh! You’re a baby queer!” they explained. “It was amazing. We actually didn’t end up seeing each other again, but she really gave me the lowdown.”

Corrin continued: “I’m working out all this complex gender and sexuality stuff. And yet, I’m seeing a guy? That feels very juxtaposed, even if I’m very happy.”

The Cesare star will soon appear in My Policeman alongside Harry Styles.

Based on the acclaimed gay novel of the same name from Bethan Roberts, it is set in 1950s Brighton and features Corrin as Marion Taylor, a schoolteacher who falls in love with a police officer named Tom Burgess (Styles).

Prime Video will release My Policeman in cinemas across the US and UK on 21 October and on streaming worldwide on 4 November.
