Heartstopper star doesn’t feel the need to explain sexuality

No Comments

Heartstopper star Kit Connor has once again spoken about the speculation regarding his sexuality, and explained why he doesn’t feel like he needs to explain it to anyone.

The actor, who plays bisexual Nick, previously expressed frustration with people labelling him on Twitter, and has now appeared on the Reign with Josh Smith podcast to explain why he wants to keep his private life private.

“In regards to my tweets, I just think that there’s a danger with things on social media,” he said.

“In the cast, I’m 18 and we have a few people in their early 20s, and even with those older members of the cast, we’re all so young, and to start speculating about our sexualities and maybe pressuring us to come out when maybe we’re not ready.”

He continued: “I mean, for me, I just feel like I’m perfectly confident and comfortable in my sexuality, but I’m not too big on labels and things like that. I’m not massive about that. And I don’t feel like I need to label myself, especially not publicly. That tweet was slightly calling them out but also find it funny.

“It’s 2022, it feels a bit strange to make assumptions about a person’s sexuality just based on hearing their voice or seeing their appearance. I feel like that’s a very interesting, slightly problematic, sort of assumption to make.”
