In an new interview with Los Angeles
Confidential, actor Jack Falahee discusses playing gay on the ABC
drama How To Get Away With Murder.
Falahee, 26, plays gay law student
Connor Walsh on the show, which returned Thursday for a second
season. At the end of last season, Connor's boyfriend learned that
“I approach it as, 'This is my job
and I'm going to work at fulfilling my duties as an actor,'” he
said of playing a gay character. “I'm doing my best to portray
[Connor] in an honest light.”
“We're seeing a lot gay men and women
on television. I think the whole landscape is being restructured to
accurately portray humans,” he added.
Falahee's next role is playing a
Confederate scout in Mercy Street, the upcoming PBS miniseries
set in the Civil War.
