Actor Elliot Page sat down with Oprah Winfrey for his first interview since coming out as transgender.

The Apple TV episode is set to air on April 30, according to a promotional tweet for Winfrey’s show “The Oprah Conversation.”

“[W]hat part of your transition has actually brought you the most joy?” Winfrey asked Page in the teaser for the interview. (RELATED: Elliot Page Went Through Reconstructive Chest Surgery Amid Transgender Transformation)

Page responded, “The most joy. It’s getting out of the shower and the towel’s around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re like, ‘There I am.’ And I’m not having the moment where I’m panicked.”

Page has been vocal about his transformation since coming out. The “Juno” star revealed he had undergone top surgery during an interview published in March by TIME.

Page first revealed he was transgender in December on Instagram.

“I feel lucky to be writing this,” Page wrote at the time. “To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.”

“I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey,” Page added. “I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”

By the end of January, Page had reportedly filed for divorce from wife Emma Portner.
