Alex Lawther: Just a Young Actor With Mystery Dating Affair and Gay Rumors

If we start listing the names of the actors labeled as gay for depicting a gay character on-screen, it will take a while. Actors like Cameron Monaghan from ShamelessFinn Jones from Game of ThronesJake Weary from Animal Kingdom, and many others are rumored to be gay just for their sexual orientation on camera. 

The newest addition to the list is Alex Lawther, an English actor, who, too, is often assumed to be gay for his LGBTQ portrayals. But, is there any truth to the speculations made about Alex's sexuality? Keep reading to uncover the fact.

Alex Lawther's Mystery Dating Affair That Boosts the Gay Rumors:

Apart from portraying gay characters on screen, Alex has depicted romantic roles with actresses, too. His chemistry with his The End of the F***ing World co-star, Jessy Barden, is loved by their respective fans.

But his onscreen romantic union with actresses didn't help the gay rumors to eradicate.

Usually, one shuts down the rumors on one's sexuality by either clarifying on not belonging to the LGBTQ community or just bringing forth their dating/married relationship with their significant other to people's attention. However, Alex is still to open up on the matter.

Neither has he addressed the gay rumors nor has he introduced to the media a possible partner. Now, the question is, how appropriate will it be to deem him a homosexual without having any valid grounds on the matter?

Well, though Alex's dating affair is a mystery as of now, the chances are that he might be dating a girlfriend—or a boyfriend—away from the media attention. We need to understand, not everybody prefers limelight on their personal life, and similar could be the case with Alex.

Well, he's not even on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter, so what do you expect? Therefore, unless the 22-year-old actor himself comes forth addressing the rumors, we are stuck in the oblivious. 

Despite the uncertainty of his sexuality, however, what is apparent is that Alex finds it necessary to make films featuring the LGBTQ community. In an interview with CBS News back in March 2017, Alex provided an insight into the prominence of incorporating LGBT stories in the films.

"We still have a very long way to go. I’m lucky enough to live in London, which is a boiling pot of every kind of language and background and demographic and sexuality and gender, and yet most of what we’re seeing in the cinema is not reflective of that. And absolutely, LGBT stories are important to tell -- which is part of a broader problem that we just need more diversity on our screens and in our theaters -- and in our government, too -- to represent a broader population."

Know about Alex's Family:

Lawther was born on May 4, 1995, in Petersfield, England to his lawyer parents. Alex, 22 years of age, is the youngest of three siblings in Lawther family, as he has an older brother, Cameron and an older sister, Ellie.
