Gay Christmas Is Halloween: Trans Actress Jamie Clayton Cast As Pinhead In New Hellraiser Movie

Back in May, Queer News Tonight reported that Gay film creator Clive Barker wanted to produce a reboot of The Mummy with a transgender lead. It seems he shifted gears slightly, as it has been announced that Hulu's upcoming reboot of Hellraiser will feature trans actress Jamie Clayton as Pinhead. The movie will also star gay actor Brandon Flynn from "13 Reasons Why." Clayton has been a vocal advocate for more inclusive casting for trans actors. In 2019, promoting her role in the HBO Max docuseries 'Equal' she said, “The only difference between a trans character and a cis character is that cis characters aren’t bogged down in language and dialogue about their gender identity. So in actuality, on any show that you love, any character could be trans if you want them to be.”
