Canadian actor Victor Garber says his being gay is no secret.

Garber, who is best known for playing Jack Bristow in the ABC action series Alias, leads the cast of the NBC prime-time soap opera Deception, which premiered on Monday, January 7. He also plays Ken Taylor, Canadian ambassador to Iran, in the critically acclaimed film Argo.

In an interview with Greg in Hollywood's Greg Hernandez, Garber said his 13-year-old relationship with Rainer Andreesen was common knowledge.

β€œI don't really talk about it but everybody knows,” he told Hernandez last week at the TV Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, California. β€œHe's going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards.”

In April, Garber told that his proudest achievement aside from his theatrical success was his relationship with Andreesen, whom he referred to as his companion. The couple lives in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

Other notable film appearances for Garber, 63, include shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in Director James Cameron's Titanic and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone in Milk. He also received an Emmy nomination for a 2004 guest appearance on Will & Grace.
