Is Tom Ellis Gay or Straight? The sexy and totally shaggable British actor who stars as Lucifer Morningstar in the new Fox TV hit, Lucifer, is straight. He was married to a woman for eight years. Nowadays, if British tabloids are to be believed, he is reportedly dating actress Zoe Boyle.
Though he is as straight as an arrow, he has played some gay roles. From an interview with xfinity.com:
Have you ever played gay roles?
TE: I was in a show called “No Angels,” which was a Channel Four show, where I played a gay nurse called Justin. Actually, I was in a drama school production of “Beautiful Thing,” that Jonathan Harvey play. I played Ste in that. And I quite famously did a spread for a gay magazine in the U.K. about a year and-a-half ago. [Ellis’s role in “The Lyons” was also as gay son Curtis]
It’s almost like a rite of passage now for straight actors to play gay roles because it used to be such a stigma and it’s not anymore.
TE: No. It’s not. It’s another character and my approach to acting is always from a humanistic point of view and I think that’s something that’s been passed down from my Dad. He was a Baptist pastor but the most humanistic kind of religious man I’ve ever known and that philosophy in life is how I approach things.
