3. Wentworth Miller (2007-2008):

The Prison Break actor Wentworth Miller was the one linked with Luke Macfarlane a little more publicly than the other three men in 2007 

According to Perez Hilton, the couples were bound together since 2007 according to its reliable source which said,

 "Wentworth and Luke have been secretly dating for almost six months now; they've been very quiet about their relationship, obviously, as Wentworth is not out of the closet."

Following that, the couples were also seen riding in a car together, laughing along.

In an interview with in 2007, Wentworth denied that he is gay by saying that he would like a girlfriend and a family. When the interviewer asked, “There are rumors that you prefer men.” His answer was along the lines of,

"I'm not gay, but that rumor can't be killed. I'd like to have a girlfriend and a family. But I haven't met the right one yet. Until then I'm focusing on my job. I had to wait so long for this chance I savor every second on set even if it means 14 hours of shooting a day."

Despite all his denial, as reported by in 2013, he once opened up himself as a gay in a letter to  Maria Averbakh, director of the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, also when he was invited to said festival but declined the invitation considering Russia's strict anti-gay laws. Most notably, refusing while saying.

" As a gay man, I must decline."

4. Chad Slivinski (2008):

At last, in  March 2008, Luke was seen with semi-professional Wrestler-cum-actor Chad Slivenski also known as Chad Austin, with whom no pictures are available. This was only assumed to be a relationship and was not confirmed. However, no information about it has been found.

Luke Macfarlane Gay

Luke came out as gay in April 2008 with The Globe and Mail. He simply said,

"I don't know what will happen professionally ... that is the fear, but I guess I can't really be concerned about what will happen because it's my truth.”

From that day onward, Luke Macfarlane became openly gay.

In an interview with in 2008, Luke talked about his experience in coming out as gay and how it influenced his career, life, and the various factors that affected his action.

When questioned about how he thought his decision to come out of the closet would affect him personally, he replied with

I don’t know what will happen professionally … but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth

When asked how the media handled his coming out as well as its effect on his career, he had quite a lot to say

I feel strongly that there is a distinction between revealing my sexual preference and my most private thoughts. My sexual preference is one irrefutable aspect of me, like the color of my skin. I’ve never been interested in revealing intimate details about my life. The concern with engaging with the media has to do with trying to make sure they will understand this difference.

He also went on to talk about how his then-role as Scotty(who is homosexual as well) in the TV show 'Brothers and Sisters' definitely influenced him and gave him the strength to accept who he was as he was essentially projecting himself on Scotty every time he was acting like him.
