Captain Jack Harness

This just in: John Barrowman and his husband are into Captain Jack role play.

“I have Captain Jack’s coat. I have one of the Doctor’s coats,” Barrowman tells Gay Star News in a new interview. “Scott and I sometimes put them on… ahem!”

Barrowman played Captain Jack Harness on the hit British sci-fi series Torchwood from 2006 to 2011.

He adds: “All I’ll all say is, a healthy gay relationship and straight relationship, you should have role play and do fun things!”

51-year-old Barrowman, who has been in a relationship with Scott Gill since 2013, says he often keeps little mementos from the various characters he plays.

“I’ve got my costumes from La Cage aux Folles,” he says. “I have the leather pants Captain Jack wore, because they were mine!”

Asked whether he would consider reprising his role as Captain Jack, Barrowman says: “If I was asked, I’d do it at the drop of a hat. I’d love to interact with the new Doctor. Captain Jack changed my life. I know what an iconic figure he is.”
