Richard Madden speaks up in support of Gay-For-Pay.



- Richard Madden (who's rumoured to be dating Brandon Flynn from 13 Reasons Why) talked about straight actors playing gay roles.
- He said: “It’s a really terrible route to go down if we start restricting people’s casting based on their personal lives. We have to focus more on diversity and having everyone represented, but also I’m a firm believer in the best actor for the role.”
- Richard Madden has played gay characters in the shortlived but great 'Sirens'(srsly, watch it) and he'll play Taron Egerton's love interest in 'Rocketman', Elton John's upcoming biopic.
