Shedding Light on Terry Chen's Gay Speculations and Personal Life

One look at Terry Chen is enough for him to make way into your heart with his stunning appearance and performance.

He probably already has worked his magic in capturing many hearts, especially that of ladies, but his recent portrayal of a gay character has the fans wondering about his sexuality in real life.

Keep reading if you want all the tea on the ' House of Cards' actor's rumored sexuality.

Is Terry Chen Gay?

As LGBTQIA+ representation is becoming more normalized in mainstream media, many actors have gladly taken on the roles regardless of their actual sexual orientation.

Likewise, Chen also appeared as a gay character in the movie 'Falling' alongside Viggo Mortensen as a married couple.

The two shared a steamy kissing scene in the movie that caught much attention and led to speculations about him being gay.

However, the actor remains secretive about his love life.

He has appeared in a variety of roles ranging from action, drama, and thriller to romance.

But he has not mentioned any links to his personal life from the character and has not directly addressed the gay rumors either.

His co-star, however, has been vocal about the subject. In fact, Viggo believes that someone's sexual identity is not everyone's business. 

“And how do you know what my life is? You’re assuming that I’m completely straight. Maybe I am, maybe I’m not. And it’s frankly none of your business,” he told The Times.

Moreover, he shared that he has no idea about Terry's sexuality despite playing gay partners on-screen.

People have even asked him about it upfront, but his answer is simple. Gracefully maintaining privacy for Terry, he said,

And the answer is I don’t know, and I would never have the temerity to ask someone if they were, during the casting process

Furthermore, Terry has not been linked to anyone in the past, and he has not been married either.

However, he has a son whom he dearly loves. This has led to even more confusion amongst the fans about his sexual orientation and love life.
