HTGAWM's Jack Falahee is tired of being asked if he's gay



Jack Falahee, who plays Connor Walsh on How to Get Away with Murder and who pined after #PoorJo on Twisted, is tired of being asked about his sexuality, telling an interviewer, "I’m very confident in my sexuality, and I really don’t like talking about my romantic life in the press…. I really don’t see what my sexuality has to do with the characters, and I think that’s private. But I find it interesting, the fascination with picking apart or outing actors who play homosexual characters on TV or in films. We don’t have that same fascination with actors who are portraying heterosexual characters."

He talked some more about this during an interview with Michelangelo Signorile on SiriusXM Progress:




^ In the Sirius interview, he compared it to asking an actor who plays an alcoholic what their relationship is like with alcohol. Then he went on about Stanislavi-based acting techniques and the Lee Strasberg method of sense-memory and the Stella Adler method and idk at that point my eyes glazed over. /philistine
