Billy Dee Williams as Lando in Star Wars Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams identifies as gender fluid.

The actor added: "I'm a very soft person". He continued, saying, "I'm not afraid to show that side of myself".

Billy Dee Williams says he sees Lando Calrissian as a gambler, a bit of a showman, and a bit of an entrepreneur, instead of a "general running around shooting things". "I never tried to be anything except myself".

He says he doesn't "take himself and herself too seriously" in response to Esquire which broached the topic of Donald Glover, who played Lando in the 2018 film, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Williams' 1980 addition to the "Star Wars" franchise was a groundbreaking moment in pop culture, the first time a man of color was presented as a romantic, complex, heroic character in the overwhelmingly white context of a mainstream fantasy/sci-fi film.

"Yeah, he's coming on to everybody", Glover said of Calrissian during an interview previous year with SiriusXM after "Solo" writers confirmed the character's pansexuality.

Williams also spoke about breaking barriers: "Although he will forever be known as Lando, Williams is proudest of his Emmy-nominated performance as Gale Sayers in the 1971 TV movie Brian's Song".

Williams, 82, will be reprising his role as Calrissian for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December.

"It was a love story, really", Williams said. "Between two guys. Without sex", he said. It ended up being a kind of breakthrough in terms of racial division, ' he tells me.

As for what's next for Lando, Williams said that all "depends on how much money is generated" from the new movie, adding: "It's a conclusion - certainly it depends on how much money is generated".

"Really? That kid is brilliant - just look at those videos", Williams said, referencing Glover's song "This Is America".
