Emma Corrin cuts a casual figure leaving theatre after the opening night of her West End debut


Emma Corrin cut a casual figure leaving a London theatre after the opening night of her West End debut in ANNA X on Wednesday. 

The actress, 25, who plays Anna, showed off her sense of style in a green bomber jacket and baggy trousers as she headed home from the Harold Pinter Theatre after her performance. 

Her outing came as she shared a post about non-binary awareness week on her Instagram Story as well as a post on the definition of non-binary people after recently adding ‘they’ to her chosen pronouns.

Leaving the theatre Emma wore a dark cap, grey trainers and carried a big handbag with her full of all the essentials.  

She was seen hugging a group of friends after the show – in which she stars as a socialite called Anna. 

The show is inspired by the Anna Sorokin case – a woman who posed as a billionaire heiress in New York and conned her way to the top of high society as a wealthy German heiress.

Who is Anna Sorokin?

Anna Sorokin posed as a billionaire heiress in New York and conned her way to the top of high society as a wealthy German heiress.

She worked under the name Anna Delvey in order to defraud banks, hotels, and wealthy acquaintances. 

She was found guilty in 2019 of theft of services and grand larceny, having scammed more than $200,000 (£145,000) from banks and luxury hotels. 

Anna was only released from prison in March this year. 

During her trial prosecutors told how Sorokin pretended she was worth about $60m with a trust fund in Europe.

Maintaining the scam for several years, Sorokin used her phony persona to facilitate a luxury lifestyle where she lived in a lavish New York hotel and ate out at stylish restaurants. 

Anna was only released from prison in March this year.   

Sorokin was paid $320,000 by Netflix to consult on its new series about her. She used some of the money to pay off her victims, and is now looking for more work. 

The website for the theatre writes: ‘Immersed in an addictive world of front-row fashion shows, private views, and endless parties, Anna and Ariel find themselves struggling to keep up with New York’s dazzling social elite. How far will two outsiders go to construct the identities they want? And at what price?’

Emma will appear in the show for a four-week run.  

Earlier on Wednesday, Emma shared an article from the Gay Times about International Non-Binary Day and Non-Binary Awareness Week as well as a definition of non-binary. 

It comes after Emma was pictured holding hands with Ibrahim ‘Ibby’ Njoya in a leafy part of London on Monday. 

The Crown starlet is thought to have grown close to the art director, also 25, in recent weeks. 

The outing comes a week after Emma changed her pronouns to she/they on her Instagram bio – meaning she is happy to be addressed by either.

In the earlier social media updates, Emma shared her ‘intimate’ journey with buying her first breast binder with her Instagram followers on Monday afternoon. 

Revealing the snaps were taken before she bought her first binder, Emma said: ‘Some time before I bought my first binder, messing around with @sirdavidsimon.

Emma went on to reveal she is on a ‘journey’ with lots of twists and turns, but admitted that she was ’embracing it’.

She wrote: ‘We used boxing wrap, thanks for capturing this with me, very intimate, very new, very cool. It’s all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it.’

Emma also revealed the type of binder she uses, which is by LBGT and trans owned brand gc2b.

The star’s post received a wealth of support from her followers. 

Many left heart emojis in the comments section, while singer Paloma Faith, wrote: ‘Beautiful pictures’.

In June, Emma marked the end of pride month by sporting a rainbow jumper while out and about in London. Months earlier in April, Emma appeared to announce that she is ‘queer’. 

She took to Instagram as she shared a picture from a spread in Pop magazine where she was clad in a wedding dress and veil.

She simply captioned the image: ‘ur fave queer bride’.

Emma has most recently will stared in LGBTQ+ drama My Policeman alongside Harry Styles, which wrapped filming last month.

Emma has kept tight-lipped on any talk surrounding her sexuality and dating life. 

Back in October, she was asked by Stella magazine if there was a ‘boyfriend on the scene’, and replied: ‘I’d rather navigate this on my own. It’s nicer to feel like I’m taking care of me.’

MailOnline has contacted Emma’s representatives for comment. 

Emma soared into the spotlight last year with her breakout role as Princess Diana in Netflix’s The Crown. The British star plays the late Royal in the fourth series of the drama, in a role which has won her widespread critical acclaim.
