“When you talk about ‘the gay community,’ you are talking about my community,” he said, later adding, “I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, ’cause it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail.”
The actor said that it is important to “stand up and be counted.” “I have and always will stand my ground,” he said. “So, yeah, people have been great, on the show, but I don’t see why it would be an issue.”
Congrats to Kristian! See!? There really is a gay in every village — even in Westeros!
