We just love hearing our favorite actors and actresses explaining why they got into the business!
Aww, we just love tradition!
So, what was YOUR favorite I'm An Actor speech?
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!
