Ryan Kwanten Talks Gay Vampires And Seski Stackhouse

Ryan Kwanten's character on True Blood has been a little short of open minded.

However, the actor is delighted to see his TB persona, Jason Stackhouse, evolve in his understanding of others — mainly vampires and gays.

In the show's fifth season premiere, Jason has to deal with a gay vampier, Steve Newlin, that is ob-sess-ed with him.

Kwanten says he's proud of the progressive way his character dealt with the situation. The hunky-hawt actor explains:

"When you look at Jason in season 1 he had a very tunnel view of the world and some would say an ignorant view. And now, that speech he gave to Newlin was 'Look, I accept who you are, whether it's a vampire, whether it's a gay man, or both. But that's not the way this dog barks.' That's a huge step for Jason to change his spots… Towards the end of the season, which we are shooting now, he puts the things he has learned into practice and starts to show his true colors."

For a show that is purdy much a not-so-subbtle metaphor for civil rights, some character growth is to be expected!

Ryan makes a great point!

Jason is one of the few characters whose predictive has progressed over the corse of the series.

You go Jason!

    Typical of you Perez. Talk about being a hypocrite. You "out" someone, yet pretend like you actually care about people's feelings. Get over yourself.

    You should probably research your stories more before you make claims about peoples' sexuality. Have a read of this first :

    In a new interview with The Advocate's Brandon Voss, True Blood's Ryan Kwanten reveals he has a gay brother:

    "My youngest brother, Lloyd, is gay. He’s a doctor, so he got every ounce of intelligence in the family. He was probably about 18 when he came out, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that from the day that he did, he was a changed man for the better. The sheer beauty of who he is really came through…There was never an issue (with my family). My parents always encouraged an open channel of communication, so we talked about that and everything else. That’s something lacking in a lot of modern-day families — just talking. It’s almost a lost art form."

    A retraction or correction to that comment would be nice, but I guess this is a gossip site

    he's gay? i'm so happy!

    it's pretty obvious that jason this season is going to realize that he isn't straight.

    Pretty sure he's not gay. Or if he is, he's not out. It's not really cool to out him forcefully.

    The article doesnt say he is gay people! READ before you post comments! The article is talking about his character development on the show! Just because someone is PRO LGBT rights doesnt make them gay!

    Re: dosomeresearch – Where in the article does it say that he is gay? You must be reading something im not because all I see is that he is PRO-gay rights…

    Re: Justin27 – He has changed the post to remove what he said earlier. He said something along the lines of "openly gay actor".

    I don't understand, did he change the post or something?

    I think he's gay. If he wants to "remain a mystery" its obvious he's either bisexual or gay. Ever see him with another female? NO!
