Actor and comedian Eddie Izzard has revealed the name she’s always wanted after changing her pronouns to “she” and “her”.

Izzard shared her new name, admitting that it’s what she has wanted to be called since she was 10 years old.

On an episode of The Political Party podcast, the British icon, 61, said, “I’m gonna be Suzy Eddie Izzard.

“I’ll put Suzy there and then Eddie and then people can choose what they want and no one can go wrong,” The Sun reported.

She added, “I’ve wanted to be S-U-Z-Y since I was 10.

“That’s how I’m gonna roll so people can choose what they want. They can’t make a mistake; they can’t go wrong.”

In December 2020, the British comedian and former political candidate was dubbed a “trailblazer” by fans when she first asked to use the pronouns “she” and “her” during the filming of the UK TV show, Portrait Artist Of The Year, revealing she was “gender fluid”.

The transition, however, has been 35 years in the making. Izzard first came out as a transvestite in 1985. In 2021, she told The Guardian that as far as she was concerned, being a transvestite simply meant being transgender without physically transitioning. She now identifies as a trans woman and wants to be “based in girl mode”.

The comedian also admitted, “I make mistakes with my own pronouns.”

She then spoke to the podcast about political ambitions after not being selected at the UK Labour’s parliamentary candidate in Sheffield Central in 2022.

“I will keep going until I get in,” she said.

Prior to the TV show in late 2020, Izzard also requested in 2019 to be described as “she” while receiving an honorary degree at Swansea University.

The press release from the ceremony described her using female pronouns with a university spokesperson confirming, “we were asked by Eddie to use her/she pronouns.”
