‘Sherlock’ Star Says He’s Never Been In The Closet

unnamed-1No. I never really have. I never didn’t speak about it. It’s really important to find out who you are before you have success, because there’s really a rush now for actors to get as famous as possible as quickly as possible and so it was really important for me, in the first ten years of my career just to get to know myself and work hard. I’m glad in a sense that I wasn’t a commodity, because when people start to look at you and scrutinise you in a way that they didn’t before – it’s important you know who they are looking at it. You need to know and accept who you are.”
