Star of Heartstopper, Kit Connor, has revealed that he does not want to define or label his sexuality yet. The young actor, who plays love interest Nick Nelson in the hit Netflix show, recently expressed his reluctance for labels after extended public pressure to open up about his sexuality.
During an interview on the podcast Reign With Josh Smith, Connor spoke about the experiences that he and co-star Joe Locke (who plays Charlie) face in daily life and the pressure to label themselves.
Connor expressed his wariness over revealing, or even defining, his sexuality at such a young age. “We’re still all so young.
To start sort of speculating about our sexualities and maybe pressuring us to come out when maybe we’re not ready,” he commented. “For me, I just feel perfectly confident and comfortable with my sexuality.
