However, Mau has now revealed there was a final interaction between the pair that didn't make it into the series which showed Teri being able to fully move on from her relationship with Donny and ordeal with Martha.

"That's what gave me so much comfort, knowing that they found peace with regards to their relationship," she added.

Explaining why it was important for her to see a trans character to get a "happy ending," she continued: "Teri found a new man, she didn't lose her friends, she didn't lose her job, she didn't lose her smile. She's good.

"And I think that is remarkable, because so often we've seen stories of trans people that end with them broken."

Created by Gadd, Baby Reindeer is based on his real life experience with a stalker, which in turn forces him to face his own buried trauma.

Gadd plays a fictionalised version of himself, while other characters and plot details have been changed in order to protect the identities of the real-life people the series is based on.

Following the premiere of the series, Gadd has since urged viewers not to try to identify or speculate about the people the characters were based on.

"Please don't speculate on who any of the real-life people could be. That's not the point of our show. Lots of love, Richard x X," Gadd wrote on his Instagram Stories.

Baby Reindeer is available to stream on Netflix.
