Xavier Samuel Suits Up For GQ Magazine
The 26-year-old Aussie was in Berlin shooting a Roland Emmerich movie about Shakespeare during the interview. Xavier portrays the Earl of Southampton. “He’s one of the only people that Shakespeare ever dedicated his work to,” he shared.
As for whether or not Shakespeare is gay in this movie, Xavier spills, “There’s a lot of speculation about that. Historically, some scholars have theorized that Southampton was Shakespeare’s lover. But the film is about the authorship of the plays—who actually wrote them.”
