Will Tudor about GOT:

"Game of Thrones came first and the popularity of the show really opened doors for me. It's been a bit of a rolling stone for me in that regard. I do, although I must admit I'm a bit behind on Game of Thrones because of the shooting schedule, so I'm trying to avoid spoilers - which is tricky! Both Game of Thrones and Humans are such ensemble pieces. You see the scripts and see this whole other world beyond your part, which is great to see."

His most significant breakthrough, however, came at a cost. So convincing was his role in the HBO series that fans began to believe that he was gay in real life as well.

Affairs - Gay Or Dating Girlfriend?

Apart from Tudor’s gay character in Game of Thrones, there are no affairs or girlfriends linked with him. There are no dating histories as well even though the guy is hot as hell! He may or may not be a closeted gay in real life, but he does have a best friend in the form of a co-star.

Accused Of Being Gay:- Ray Allen Wife, Gay, Kids, Net Worth

Rumors and speculations about Will's relationship with 'Shadowhunters' actress Katherine McNamara have always flown around. The two look like a great pair. They are good friends and are pretty close to each other.

Fans of the show have shipped them together for quite some time. And because Will and Katherine regularly popped up on each other's social media, it looked like for a moment that their wishes could even come true.

Despite the dating rumors, there's very little concrete evidence that the co-stars might be an item. If anything - as mentioned above - Will and his rumored girlfriend Katherine are great friends.

To the fans dismay, neither of the lovebirds has yet to dignify the rumors about them dating with a response. The closest thing to a statement came in the form of a tweet when Katherine tweeted a birthday wish to Will in April 2018. In the tweet, she called him her "best friend." In her own words:-

"Happy birthday, @willtudor1! You are undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met. It’s so rare that you meet someone with which you have inherent understanding and I’m lucky to have you as one of my best friends. Enjoy your day, my dear! X"

Shadowhunters starring Will and his best friend, Katherine returned to TV in Feb 2019 to finish its third season.
