Russell Tovey on his coming out!

Hunky and talented British actor Russell Tovey pops up on our radar from time to time – especially when he’s delivering great performances like in The Pass – but this time he’s making the news because he spoke a few words about his coming out! For those of you who don’t know, Tovey is openly gay.

I was watching the film of Beautiful Thing on TV. My mum came in and I turned it off and when she went to bed I turned it back on. I remember thinking, ‘OK, that’s it.’ It’s like someone had put their hand on mine and said, ‘There you go.’ It’s a love story with a happy ending. It’s good to have role models and now there are so many more.

Honestly, it’s the best thing that ever happened to me, being gay. It’s made my career.

We’re gonna wait for The Pass and then we’ll watch Quantico, where Tovey is playing a mystery gay man!
