John Barrowman has spoke out being an openly gay actor, and how "half of the straight actors who are playing straight characters in Hollywood are actually gay".
Captain Jack offered advice to actors who live a lie stating that life is better out of the closet, and that people shouldn't be scared to come out if they are an actor.
"You are the one who has to make that decision," Barrowman said, referring to the question of coming out. "But don't negate other people who don't live a lie, and don't try to make it like they can't play a character because of who they are at home or in bed with their partner, because it makes no difference and has no relevance."Torchwood: Miracle Day begins on July 8 on Starz in the US and on July 14 on BBC One in the UK.
The 44-year-old continued: "Because I will say this - half of the straight actors who are playing straight characters in Hollywood are actually gay. I'm not pointing any fingers, but it would just make things a lot easier if everybody was who they are. As [Lady] GaGa would say, you were born this way."
