Emma opted for a pair of brown boots to complete their look and wore a make-up palette of subtle hues.

Orlando, which opened on Saturday 26 November and runs through to Saturday 25 February 2023, is an adaptation of late author Virginia Woolf’s 1928 novel Orlando: A Biography.

Directed by Tony and Olivier winner Michael Grandage, it tells the story of an aristocratic English poet who changes gender from man to woman at the age of 30 and lives for 300 years.

Emma swapped their preferred pronouns from ‘she/her’ to ‘they/them’ in 2021 and has spoken out about the issue several times since.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, they said: ‘I’m definitely fortunate that I’m 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 that, but I didn’t think about it.’

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

‘Just try, and I’ll correct you where necessary and gradually we take steps forward. It’s not going to happen overnight.’

It comes after earlier this week Emma said they hope awards ceremonies such as Oscars and BAFTAs introduce gender neutral categories.

Emma said the awards, in their current formats, aren’t ‘inclusive enough’ and said the change they hope for, would enable everyone to feel ‘acknowledged and represented.’ 

The star of stage and screen said better representation within roles in the entertainment industry is needed to encourage ‘an urgency’ around addressing the subject.  

Emma has won a Golden Globe award for best actress for their 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’s Today Programme about the possibility of gender neutral categories at major awards shows, Emma said: ‘I hope for a future in which that happens.

‘I don’t think the categories are inclusive enough at the moment. It’s about everyone being able to feel acknowledged and represented.’
