Penny Dreadful’s Reeve Carney on his gay kiss: ‘You could certainly do a lot worse than Josh Hartnett’

I didn’t watch any of the new Showtime series Penny Dreadful but it seems that the most buzz-worthy moment of the first season was the make-out session between two of the lead male characters.

In episode four, Josh Hartnett’s Ethan Chandler and Reeve Carney’s Dorian Gray kissed passionately even though there had been no previous indication that either character was gay or bisexual.

‘I knew that something like that would likely happen at some point and I figure, you know, you could certainly do a lot worse than Josh Hartnett,” Carney told at Comic-Con over the weekend.

Carney says his character will have a new love interest in the upcoming second season but he isn’t sure if it will be a man or a woman.

‘It’s probably all downhill for me in terms of any man-on-man action I might have on the show,’ he says. ‘They’ll have to keep their game high!’

The series, which draws upon many characters from 19th-century Irish and British fiction, will have a 10-episode second season to air in 2015.

One Remark

  1. I don’t remember the exact details but the Dorian Gray character was shown lounging around a sort of sex party with a shirtless male character, so his bisexuality was certainly suggested before his make-out session with Evan Chandler.
