Wentworth Miller is returning to television in a guest appearance as Leonard Snart in the television series "The Flash". The talented actor has been in the news recently both for his booking of this role and his revelations about how his life has been since he revealed he was gay.
The actor felt as if he was 'feeding a fantasy' to women by pretending to be heterosexual and since he came out after declining to attend a Russian film festival because of the countries support of homophobia and intolerance he feels much more "fully expressed".
Since "Prison Break" he felt that even though his family and friends knew he was gay his actions professionally were creating a attitude of "We don't address that thing" which was the possibility of his being gay even though he believes that many of his fans knew that he was gay.
It seems as if he felt he had to show that it was acceptable to be gay and that it was necessary to give audiences credit for being sophisticated enough to not be focused on an actor's sexuality. Moreover, in his mind audiences can still fantasize about someone different than them because people usually project their fantasies onto actors.
Wentworth Miller's public persona was in "misalignment" with who he was and some fans wonder if it has been a contributing factor to his struggle with depression.
Fortunately, the fact that he is gay and 'out' has not impacted his popularity with filmmakers as an actor as he recently completed filming of the movie "The Loft" in which he plays a starring role. The movie revolves around the lives of five friends who share a loft for their extramarital affairs. The friends start to question each other after the murdered body of an unknown young woman is found in the property. He also was announced as part of the cast for the film "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter".
Wentworth Miller feels 'free' and more in alignment with who he feels he is and for his fans that is the best news they could receive about this talented actor.
