Someone came out as gay last night at the Cannes Film Festival!
And he’s a rough, rugged Viking!
How To Train Your Dragon 2 director Dean DeBlois (who is himself openly gay) confirmed that a character from his animated blockbuster is indeed a same-sex loving dragon slayer!
So who is it??
None other than the Craig Ferguson voiced Gobber!
DeBlois explained how the coming out occurred in the upcoming sequel during a scene where a husband and wife are fighting in front of Gobber.
"When we were recording Craig Ferguson, I had written the line, 'This is why I never got married," and he, as he often does, added it as an ad lib and he said, 'Yup, Gobber is coming out of the closet,’ I think that's a really fun, daring move to put in. I love the idea that Gobber is Berk's resident gay!”
So do we!
We’re so happy for you Gobber!
But, don’t swear off marriage just yet! We hear same-sex marriage is legal in your village of Berk. Maybe you’ll meet someone who you’ll want to settle down with!
