The Crown actor Emma Corrin has shared stunning images from a photoshoot in which she's wearing a chest binder.
The 25-year-old, who plays Princess Diana in the hit show, posted a series of black and white pictures of herself wearing a make-shift binder made using box-tape.
Emma recently changed her pronouns to she/they on her Instagram page.
Captioning the images, she wrote: "Some time before I bought my first binder, messing around with David-Simon Dayan.
"We used boxing wrap. Thanks for capturing this with me. Very new, very intimate, very cool.
"It's all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that's OK! Embrace it."
She also revealed she now uses a binder made by a brand called gc2b – a trans owned and operated company that provides safe binding options for trans people.
Chest binding, also known as breast binding, is the act of flattening breasts by the use of constrictive materials. The term also refers to the material used in this act.
Emma's post received a wealth of support from her followers, including actor and comedian Mae Martin, who recently shared images from a shoot in which they are wearing a binder.
"Very cool," Mae wrote, in response to Emma's post.
Back in April, Emma referred to herself as queer.
In a post on Instagram, she shared an image from a spread in Pop magazine.
Wearing a wedding dress and veil, she captioned the image: "ur fave queer bride."
The images of Emma wearing a binder have sparked joy among members of the LGBTQ+ community on Instagram as well as a host of celebrities including Paloma Faith, Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paris Lees.
Emma received universal critical acclaim for her performance as Princess Diana on the Netflix period drama, winning a Critics’ Choice Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama.
She’s also known for recurring roles in crime dramas such as Grantchester and Pennyworth (both 2019), as well as the British comedy film Misbehaviour (2020), in which she played Jillian Jessup, Miss South Africa.
Emma will next appear in My Policeman, based on the critically-acclaimed LGBTQ+ novel of the same name from Bethan Roberts.
Set in 1950s Brighton, the film will follow a schoolteacher called Marion who falls in love with Tom, a policeman. Tom, however, develops feelings for a museum curator named Patrick, who opens his eyes to a sophisticated new world.
Due to social constraints of the era, he decides that it is safer for him to marry Marion, and the two lovers are forced to share him until one of them breaks.
