Jack Falahee still isn’t saying if he’s gay or straight – fascinated by people wanting to know

Jack Falahee knows people want to know how much he is like his very sexually active gay character on ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder.

They just really want to know if he’s gay in real life too.

He’s still not telling.

‘We don’t ask the actor playing James Bond what his sexual preference is,’ he said this week on SiriusXM Progress. ‘So I don’t know what it is, really, with trying to out actors who portray gay characters on television. But it is some sort of fascination in society.’

The freshman series wraps up its season next week and Falahee’s law student character of Conor Walsh and his memorable trysts with several different men have catapulted the previously unknown actor to stardom.

With that stardom comes this persistent curiosity about his personal life.

‘I think we’re projecting onto actors in a way,’ he says. ‘I think we’re expecting them to be their characters when, at the end of the day, this is my job and I’m an actor portraying a role on a fictitious television show.

‘I just think it’s interesting because I have a body of work before Conor Walsh that is primarily heterosexual and yet people want to ask — you know, no on asks any other man, or woman, on my show, about their sexuality, and that’s what fascinates me.’

3 Remarks

  1. Good for him for not answering. It’s no one’s business but his anyhow.

  2. If sexual orientation isn’t a big deal why doesn’t he just say what he is, the mystery may make some to believe he is ashamed.

  3. If he’s a reasonably good actor and believable in the role he’s playing then great. His being gay, straight or bisexual is irrelevant. Unless I’m going to screw him, I could care less about his sexuality. It has no bearing on my life.
