Daniel Craig has opened up about his Knives Out character’s sexuality in a new interview. Back in October, the film’s director Rian Johnson confirmed at the London Film Festival that Craig’s Southern detective Benoit Blanc was queer.

Yes, he obviously is,” he said, according to Entertainment Weekly. Johnson also announced that Benoit would have a partner in the Knives Out sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, but the person portraying him would be kept a secret until it hit cinemas.  “There’s nobody in the world I can imagine in bringing me more joy for Benoit Blanc to be with.”  Craig, who was also at the press conference, echoed similar sentiments stating: “No spoilers [but] who wouldn’t want to live with that person?” A month after Johnson’s comments, the James Bond actor opened up to Deadline about the LGBTQ+ revelation and the lack of publicity surrounding Benoit’s sexuality.  “It’s all good.

The less of a song and dance we make about that, the better, really, for me, because it just made sense,” he told the news outlet.  “And also, as I said at the LFF, who wouldn’t want to live with the human being that he happens to live with?

It’s nice, it’s fun. And why shouldn’t it be? I don’t want people to get politically hung up on anything.”  Craig isn’t the only Knives Out star to express their appreciation for Benoit’s queer sexuality.
