Actor Rick Cosnett makes surprise announcement: “Hi, everyone… Dramatic pause… I’m gay!”


Well, this is a welcome surprise. Actor Rick Cosnett of The Flash and The Vampire Diaries just came out as gay.

“Hi, everyone… Dramatic pause… I’m gay,” Cosnett said in the short, one-minute video posted to Instagram on Thursday.

He continued, “I just wanted everyone to know, because I’ve made a promise to myself to live my truth every day, and sometimes that is a really hard thing to do, when you have all these subconscious things you don’t even know about from childhood, and from society, and from just life.”

“I’m sure most of you probably knew anyway. And yeah, that’s actually all I wanted to say. I also have a stye on my eye, which really adds to the drama of the whole thing.”

The 36-year-old, who is originally from Zimbabwe and happens to be Hugh Grant’s cousin, is best known for playing Wes Maxfield in The Vampire Diaries and Eddie Thawne in The Flash. Some of his other credits include Quantico, NCIS, and Castle.

Earlier in the week, Cosnett posted a photo of himself rocking a white dress and multi-colored scarf. In the caption, he thanked friends for “helping me find and experiment with my self expression.”

“Feels good, and terrifying,” he wrote.
