Orphan Black's Jordan Gavaris Comes Out as Gay

Orphan Black actor Jordan Gavaris, who plays the role of Felix Dawkins on the show, recently came out in an interview.

The 27-year-old actor spoke with Vulture and when asked, “What is your sexual orientation?” he responded, “Oh, I’m gay.”

“Nobody ever asks me,” Jordan continued. “I’ve never been asked. Like, the whole course of the series. I guess that’s where I’m at in terms of coming out publicly: I had this position when I started on the show that it shouldn’t matter. And I believe that. I hope that one day, the world gets to a place where you don’t need to politicize your sexuality any more than someone needs to politicize their race – that we can just act and we can exist in this Zeitgeist, telling stories about one another. And that no one’s afraid, maybe, to come out. But also that no one’s really hyperobsessed with knowing whether or not someone’s gay. That would be an amazing world to live in, where people don’t feel the need to protect themselves and other people don’t feel the need to launch an inquisition.”

    Isn´t the fact that no one asked a sign it´s getting better? No one cared, no one thought it important.

    Like @sevca:disqus said its good no one has asked. My bigger questions is WHY was he asked? Like thats a random thing to just pop in and ask during an interview. Like “how do you feel about your characters arc? Are you gay?”. Like what context could make that questioning probable. Seems so random.
