Well-known particular person Wars actor Billy Dee Williams has explained that he sees himself as every female and masculine in a unusual interview.

The 82-year-old actor is set to return to the iconic role nearly 40 years after he first appeared in 1980's "The Empire Strikes Back", and has admitted he spent a long time deciding whether to accept the invitation to return for the upcoming final movie, because he didn't know if he would be able to cope on the film set. "I say, quot; himself "and, quot; herself", because I also see myself both feminine and masculine", he said.

"This is a very hard time for me, as far as age is concerned", he said. I am not afraid to show that side of myself. "I never necessarily saw him as a general running around shooting things". "I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously", Williams, 82, said.

Although we'd hate to think about it this way, Billy Dee Williams approached the return by giving all he had to Lando.

When Esquire made Williams aware of Glover's comments, he said: "Really?"

With franchises like Star Wars becoming increasingly diverse, it's refreshing to see those involved with the movies embracing and accepting a nonbinary view of what gender is. Even if Billy Dee Williams decides to step down from the role indefinitely, Donald Glover played the character in Solo: A Star Wars Story. "Between two guys. Without sex. That kid is brilliant-just look at those videos", in reference to the video for the song "This is America", by Glover's musical alter ego Childish Gambino.

Williams' role as Lando broke racial barriers in 1980 by having a Black character in a genre of film that was and still is primarily white. 'What I presented on that screen people didn't expect to see.

"The Rock calls me the OG", Williams stated.

Williams repeated his job as Lando in the up and coming The Rise of Skywalker, the last film of the Skywalker adventure.
