"I love that the character [Barry Allen], himself, is kind of a fanboy. I grew up a Superman fan, and a DC comics fan … and I relate to that. That was my favorite thing during the audition process, the awkwardness and the fanboy inside of him that I definitely can relate to."
I was born in 1985, so for my generation, being gay is so much more accepted. As an actor, you just want to try and do as many things as possible, but being gay, and the fact that these are very different expressions of the gay community, I have a personal connection to it as well, which is kind of an added bonus.
