The actor and comic on making her female pronouns permanent, shouting down abuse, enduring a marathon a day — and running for Labour. Well, it hardly came out of the blue, she says today. Izzard had spent the past 35 years building up to it, and when she did finally make the announcement it happened by chance. A few months earlier, Izzard had been a guest on the Sky Arts series Portrait Artist Of the Year, and was asked, for the first time, which pronouns she preferred.

By the time the programme was broadcast, Izzard had forgotten about the conversation. And suddenly she was headline news. The funny thing, Izzard says, is that she had first announced she was trans in in the Hollywood Reporter and nobody had taken a blind bit of notice. But this time it was different.

Actually, Izzard says, she had not intended to be so definitive about it. She had always talked about being in boy mode most Women looking sex tonight Eddy the time and girl mode part of the time, and she was still hoping to keep her options open. For her first half century, boy mode had dominated, and now it was time for girl mode to take centre stage, but on occasions she would still like the freedom to be a he. Take, for example, the new Netflix series she is currently working on in Manchester. She beams. The thing is, she says, when she first came out as a transvestite inshe was pretty much making the same statement Women looking sex tonight Eddy is now.

For Izzard it was never just about having a thing for dresses and high heels, it was always about identifying as female. As far as she was concerned, being a transvestite simply meant being transgender without physically transitioning. She says she was four years old when she first had an inkling that she was transgender, even if she had no words for it back then. Izzard is big on self-analysis. Read her memoir Believe Meand the two most important dates are dissected time and again — first, when Izzard was six and her beloved mother died, and second, the day she first stepped out in a frock and lippy.

Both shaped her future. Everything she has done since then, she says, has been for her mother — not only to make her proud, but also in the hope of somehow bringing her back. Meanwhile, coming out at the age of 23 was the toughest thing she has done. It emboldened her as much as it terrified her — from then on she knew she could take on anything because nothing would be so scary.

Today we are Zooming to discuss her new movie — an entertaining if rickety second world war spy thriller, in which Izzard stars alongside Judi Dench. Six Minutes to Midnight is yet another first for Izzard — her debut as a screenwriter. But Izzard being Izzard, the movie is hardly the only thing on her mind. Yes, acting is her priority at the moment, but she is also planning a standup tour of Spain in Spanish.

Her appetite for ever more audacious challenges is as huge as her ambition to succeed. And finally there is politics. Izzard tells me she is planning to win a seat for Labour at the next general election, and if by some quirk she fails to she will stand again and again till she does win. There have been few performers with the stamina or self-belief of Eddie Izzard. Again, it goes back to the early days. From the age of seven, she was desperate to act, but she never got chosen for anything.

So she insinuated herself into school plays — when the cast were rehearsing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, she hovered by, uninvited, and when the drama teacher wanted a table moving she would move it. Her persistence paid off when she was given one line in the musical. At the age of 15 she broke into Pinewood Studios in the hope that somebody would spot her potential.

Nobody did, and she was turfed out. At school she already had that hunger to achieve and impress. She was expected to do nine O-levels, but opted for Alongside her outre persona, there has always been something rather conservative about Izzard. She studied sciences at A-level, started a degree in ing at the University of Sheffield and left a year later to pursue a career as a street performer.

She honed her comedic skills by talking to often imaginary audiences on the streets as an escapologist. Inspired by the Goons and Monty Python, she developed her own brand of stream of consciousness riffing. She never made any headway till establishing herself as a standup comic at the age of And this, she says, is why nothing exhausts her now. So there were 23 years of twiddling my thumbs waiting for things to get going.

While many transgender people suffer terrible gender dysphoria because they believe they have been born into the wrong sex, Izzard continued to seesaw between girl mode and boy mode. Perhaps because Women looking sex tonight Eddy this there has been a tendency to dismiss her as attention-seeking or whimsical.

But she insists this could not be less true. Can she describe that hell? The panic attacks only stopped a few years ago. Izzard shows me how people used to laugh in her face. She moves her face forward so she is virtually headbutting the screen. What the fuck is that? I want to fight everyone that says things like that. There is another fight, though, that she thinks is utterly pointless — between some trans women and some feminists.

She believes they should be allies rather than enemies. How do we change that conversation? Izzard, aged 58, is dressed soberly in a shirt and jacket, and could easily pass as a politician. In fact, she says this is how she will dress when not if she wins her seat. Has she talked to Labour about standing in the next election? But still, a lot of other people want to stand, so nothing is a given. Is she as determined about this as she has been about her standup, acting and running?

So after climbing to the top of the standup mountain she walked back down and started again at the bottom of the acting mountain. And now, having made a respectable career for herself in acting, she is preparing to give it all up for Westminster. Why is it so important for her to go into politics? Moderates have got to go in. Why does she do all the marathons — are they an obsession? Again she returns to her early life and trans issues. Great for reclaiming the sort of fitness I had as a. I can see in their eyes they go: well, fair play. In so many ways, she is bursting with self-belief.

But Izzard says she has never found relationships easy. As a kid, she struggled to make an impression on girls she fancied. And now as an out trans woman she reckons it may get a whole lot harder. Does she prefer not being in a relationship? Is she worried that transitioning may harm her career? After all, she worked so hard to be recognised as an actor, and now casting directors may well be unsure what to do with her. Thirty-five fucking years, mate, how much warning do you need? At the moment, Izzard is self-identifying as a trans woman. Does she think she will ever physically transition? I feel that boy mode has had a good innings in this one life that we get.

It is getting better and better. I do feel I can express myself in a more feminine way, which Women looking sex tonight Eddy be the age thing. Would she like boobs? They talk about penis envy, and I believe some women suffer penis envy. I cannot for the life of me get my head around this.

Her features seems softer and more feminine these days. I ask if she is taking hormone pills. She smiles and, for once, declines to answer. Eddie Izzard: 'I'm just trying to create a space for myself'. Fri 12 Mar Reuse this content.
