In her interview with the Chilean magazine, Lux explained that her family has accepted her transition as "very natural." She had previously come out to them as nonbinary, but later came to understand that she's a woman.

"Moving through the world as a woman is much more simple for me, but I still advocate for nonbinary identities to have a space in society," Lux said, per a translation via ET Online.

Lux told the publication that while her whole family seemed to view her coming out as "almost something that they expected to happen," her brother Pedro in particular "has been an important part of this."

"He's also an artist and has served as a guide for me," she continued. "He was one of the first people to gift me the tools that started shaping my identity."

Lux came out to the Narcos star over a FaceTime call. She said she remembers him asking how she was feeling. When Lux confirmed that she was happy, Pedro said, "Perfect, this is incredible."
