Finn Jones is better known for his role as Ser Loras Tyrell in the very famous show, Game of Thrones. Also called "Knight of Flowers," he was portrayed as a gay man in the show. It aroused suspicions about his sexuality in real life too.
Let's find out the truth!
Finn Jones Strongly Feels For The Gay Community
Amidst many characters, Finn Jones falls under few characters to be portrayed as gay in the Game of Thrones series. The series is based on the book, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R.R Martin.
Being a gay rights advocate, he was not impressed with the fact that Australia doesn’t allow gay marriage. He meant the same-sex marriage law of 2013 which was overturned when the newly elected government of Mr. Abbott challenged the High Court of Australia. He also expressed his dissatisfaction to Australian Prime Minister Abbott as,
'It was legal, and then it wasn't, I mean, what is his problem? What is your problem?' Does he have women's issues? Men's issues? All people have a right to love, Tell him the Knight of Flowers is coming after him and I have some questions.'
He understands what it meant to be gay as he has played the role of a gay in the show. So, he has got high respect and supports them firmly too. In an interview with DailyMail, he said.
I never had a problem playing a gay character because it was authentic. The great thing about Loras is that he has a feminine side to him, but he's actually a very strong-minded character and he's a fighter. He's a warrior.
