Since his big break as gay character Alec Lightwood on Shadowhunters everyone has been asking: “Is Matthew Daddario gay?” and we’re here to give you the definitive answer.
It’s natural for us to first meet actors in gay roles and assume they themselves may be gay, but alas after much wishing Matthew Daddario is definitely straight!
While doing a little snooping around his social media, which trust me is sparse, photos of one particular female kept popping up; Esther Kim. A quick click on over to her Instagram page reveals a trove of adorable couple photos dating back at least three years.
While we want to be sad it makes us love Daddario more for not having to explicitly clarify his sexuality in interviews, and having well spoken and thought out responses to LGBT focused questions. He’s our MCM every Monday.
The actor first played a gay role in the 2013 movie Delivery Man, in his biggest movie role to date, as lothario Channing making out with several guys despite his little screen time.
Two years later the thespian joined the LGBT-focused movie Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List in a better sized role for the actor.
Later this year he signed on to star in Shadowhunters in yet another gay role. Though he auditioned for Jace, the creators decided he would fit better as Alec.
This larger scaled gay role for him has lead to numerous rumours of his own sexuality, however these were even existent years before as several blogs posted rumours due to his private lifestyle.
If we have inadvertently shattered your dreams here he is having a little make out sesh.
And here’s a fanmade video to make you fall in love.
