December 1, 2020, we learned about Elliot Page’s transgender coming out. The actor then received a lot of messages of support from his entire community, but also from series Umbrella Academy and the Netflix platform.
A transition to stick to the personal life of elliot page
After Elliot Page came outfans of the series The Umbrella Academy asked themselves many questions to find out how the character would evolve in the series. We had learned, via a previous Twitter post from Elliot Page, that the character of Vanya would evolve into Victor Hargreeves.

Thanks to the post in question, we understood that Vanya’s character would follow the same course as Elliot Page in real life, so as to stick to the changes experienced by the actor. And today we were able to get to the bottom of it, and we found out that the dubbing actor who dubbed Vanya’s voice in VF had changed, from the first episode of season 3. This choice on the VF side (since there is no change in VO since Elliot Page keeps his own voice) was done, as evidenced by Netflix France below, to stick to the personal journey of Elliot Page:
Vanya becomes Viktor in this season 3 to follow Elliot Page’s personal journey!

If this change is obvious (or rather to the ears) between season 2 and season 3, the explanation is thus all found. But that did not prevent Internet users from rising up, sometimes congratulate this decision.
As we told you, Internet users have widely commented on this change barely season 3 of Umbrella Academy being available on Netflix. Most of them commented on this noticeable change between the two seasons, and while some were looking for the reason for this change, others simply wanted to give their opinion on the subject, as evidenced by the following tweets :
Vanya Hargreeves’ VF, is it to kill me?
Sorry but it makes no sense the others still call her Vanya
I went back to vo https://t.co/4NyCULboZU
95% of the comments on Umbrella 3 relate to Vanya’s VF when in real life we give a fuck about the balls and ovaries so much
95% des commentaires sur Umbrella 3 concernent la VF de Vanya alors qu’en vrai on s’en branle les couilles et ovaires si fort— Doc (@DocDuYTBGame) June 22, 2022

Bon on m'explique pourquoi vanya a une voix de Gars dans la saison 3 de umbrella academy ? pic.twitter.com/Ppob8KD0XQ— Lux_zy4 (@Axl_xz) June 22, 2022
So Vanya’s dubbed voice in Umbrella Academy is just not possible. Her character is still a girl at the moment, it’s ridiculous to have her voiced by a man.
Alors la voix doublée de Vanya dans Umbrella Academy c'est juste pas possible. Son personnage est toujours une fille pour le moment, c'est ridicule de la faire doubler par un homme.— Magali Socotora (Corée) (@AlexandraTST) June 22, 2022
We don’t talk about vanya’s dubbing in season 3 of umbrella academy??? #UmbrellaAcademy
On n’en parle du doublage de vanya dans la saison 3 de umbrella académie ??? #UmbrellaAcademy— Tyeasy_95 🐺 (@Tyrone26105211) June 22, 2022
So yes Vanya’s character in Umbrella Academy changes for Victor. But WTF?!?! The French voice that changes ??? I’m in denial
Alors oui le perso de Vanya dans Umbrella Academy change pour Victor. Mais WTF ?!?! La voix française qui change ??? Je suis dans le déni— MaTTis_🐰 (@mattis_avec_2_t) June 22, 2022
You have to explain to me the change of Vanya into a boy because there is no gender explanation there. We end up with a girl who has the voice of a normal guy? #UmbrellaAcademyS3
Faut m’expliquer le changement de Vanya en garçon car là il y a aucune explication genre. On se retrouve avec une meuf qui a la voix d’un mec normal ? #UmbrellaAcademyS3— 𝑀 𝑎 𝑛 𝑜 𝑛 🤎🎸 (@Manon_pr) June 22, 2022
And you, did this change seem strange to you? Profitable from experience, so as to stick to the reality of things? Do not hesitate to give us feedback via our comments section!
