“I have always seen sexuality as a spectrum,” he says, “but playing Max, a pansexual character, was incredibly liberating.”
“It was very educational, and it definitely made me challenge my own preconceived notions, my indoctrination, of ‘This is who you love, this is what you do, everything else is wrong.’”
When asked about how he identifies, “it’s just been girls,” he says of his romantic relationships.
“That’s a preference. But 26, living in New York …”
The 26-year-old actor also shared that he doesn’t like labels and finds them “very limiting”.
“I feel like labels limit you. They’re almost walls to your growth.”
