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.
“I don't really talk about it but
everybody knows,” he told Hernandez last week at the TV Critics
Association Press Tour in Pasadena, California. “He'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.
