In a recent phone interview, I was asked questions that I wasn’t expecting and found myself momentarily at a loss for the right words. My privacy is important to me, so I protect it. When interviewed by the media, I keep the focus on my work.— Lee Pace (@leepace) March 5, 2018
Lee Pace used his Twitter account to address an interview (discussed in this post) he did last week. In the interview, he discussed the importance of queer representation in media, but was taken off guard when the interviewer asked him about his own sexual orientation.
As a member of the queer community, I understand the importance of living openly, being counted, and happily owning who I am. That’s how I’ve always lived my life...— Lee Pace (@leepace) March 5, 2018
...just as it's been important to me to portray queer characters with dignity for my entire career: A Soldier's Girl (Showtime. 2003). The Normal Heart (Broadway. 2011). Halt and Catch Fire (AMC. 2014-2017). Angels in America. (Broadway. NOW.)— Lee Pace (@leepace) March 5, 2018
Onward, with Pride.
