Breaking Down Specualtions of Aaron Ashmore Being Gay- What's the Truth?

Many know Aaron Ashmore as Steve Jinks from his appearance in the science fiction series 'Warehouse 13' since its third season aired in 2011.

Later on, in the show, it was revealed that Aaron's character was actually gay.

This revelation has left fans wondering about the actor's sexual orientation off-screen. So, does fact follow fiction, or does it differ?

Is Aaron Ashmore Gay?

Aaron delivers a remarkable performance as his character in the show, but he is not gay in reality.

All 'Warehouse 13' fans must know that the show is more inclined on sci-fi and action, and it doesn't really delve into the character's love life.

Surely the sci-fi world does not have too much LGBTQIA+ representation in general, so why was Aaron's character outed in the show?

The series creator, Jack Kenny, and Aaron sat down with Out to discuss their views on the subject.

"We're always looking to bring diverse characters into our show," said Jack. And he further stretched that there was a lack of homosexual representation in the sci-fi realm.

Moreover, he explained that the character's sexual orientation made no difference in how the story was written. He said,

 It's just a part of who he is, it doesn't define the character.

"We as a minority group have achieved a lot of what we've hoped to in the entertainment industry in that a gay character just happens to be gay. I think people will respond a lot more to what Aaron brings to the screen rather than what Steve being gay brings," Jack added.

Aaron agrees to the notion of normalizing characters from all backgrounds, and he does his job as an actor exceptionally well.

Similarly, if we were to move along and focus on Ashmore's personal life off-camera, the fact is that he is a wonderful father and husband.
