Life Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams feels both men and women By weekster Posted on December 3, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Actor Billy Dee Williams (82) sees himself as both male and female. That is what the Star Wars star says in an interview with Esquire. “I am a very gentle person” The 82-year-old says in the article that he has always tried to be himself. “I see myself as a fairly colorful person, who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.” Then the actor explains: “I use the terms himself and herself because I feel feminine and masculine. I am a very gentle person, I am not afraid to show that side of myself.” Williams is primarily known as Lando Calrissian. He played that character in two Star Wars films: The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi and returns later this month as Han Solo’s old friend in the latest film from the current series, The Return Of Skywalker.
