Get ready for a “Cinderella” like no other.
In a new interview, Billy Porter opened up about Sony’s forthcoming movie musical adaptation of “Cinderella” in which he plays the fairy godmother. Due out next year, this version of the fairy tale depicts his character ― traditionally portrayed as a woman ― in a way never done on film before.
“Magic has no gender,” the “Pose” star told CBS News Tuesday. “We are presenting this character as genderless. That’s how I’m playing it.”
