“That was definitely interesting…Obviously my character, Max, is pansexual and for me it’s always amazing when you play a part to see what you can kind of draw from that and what you can compare it with in your own life, your own beliefs,” Thomas told Variety.

He continued, “And it definitely did make me question how I was brought up and have been conditioned to think in terms of gender and gender identity and sexual preferences stuff. That kind of threw that all up in the air and it was kind of very liberating. It’s been an amazing experience for me, definitely.”

The identity of the person behind Gossip Girl in the revival series was revealed in the pilot episode!

Thomas and his new girlfriend recently made their red carpet debut together!
