Since the release of the NCIS: Hawai'i TV series, fans are wondering if Tori Anderson who plays Kate Whistler in the well-known series is gay in real life too.
Tori's performance as a gay character is so good that many people think she is gay in real life as well.
But in real life, is she gay? Or is she just another straight actor who does a great job playing a gay character on the screen? In this article, you'll find out everything you need to know about Tori Anderson's sexuality.
Is Tori Anderson Gay?
No, Tori Anderson is not gay. Because she played a gay role so well on the TV series NCIS: Hawai'i, there were whispers about whether or not she was gay.
All of these rumors are false. Her representatives have denied the claim, and the fact that she is married to a man and has only dated men in the past is enough to show that she is straight and only interested in men.
However, fans can't help it rather than to think that she is gay because of how beautifully she plays a gay character.
Tori Anderson Talks About the Importance of Gay Characters and Representation
Tori Anderson, who plays Kate Whistler, says that Kate's friendship with Lucy will get “better” than “worse.” The actress talked to CinemaBlend about how important it is to have gay figures like Kate and Lucy and other types of representation.
Tori Anderson talked about how she felt about the show having a gay relationship between Kate and Lucy and making it the most important relationship of the show.
“I think it's a lot of fun. I know that's what they've always wanted to do with the show, but I think it's so important that queer characters and relationships get as much room and airtime as straight ones. And this is the only connection you'll see from the first episode to the end of the series, as well as in Season 2. So I think it's really exciting and important to show how we see the world. And everyone should see themselves on screen, and its success shows how important variety is and how important it is to keep showing these kinds of stories.”
When Tori Anderson asked the actress if she felt like they were making history by putting Nick Lachey in the lead role for Season 1, she said:
“Yes, of course. Not only is it a show run by a woman, but she is also a woman of color. I think this is a big deal. It was a lot of fun, and that was one of the things that made me want to try out for it. I was so happy about that, and I was also really happy that one of the main characters on NCIS was gay. So I think it was a big deal and that it worked out well. Vanessa is such a different star for the show. She plays Jane with kindness, heart, and the way a woman rather than a man would handle being a mother. And I just think she does a great job.”
