Thomas, The Evil Gay Of “Downton Abbey”, Is Coming Out In Season 3


It’s the series where we really comes to grips with Thomas’s sexuality and the impact being gay must have had on him, in Edwardian times. If you’re including a gay character, there’s an onus and responsibility to at least show what the impact of the time will be on him, and of him on that time. Thankfully we’ve done that, and I’m so proud that I’ve been used to tell that tale…If you were gay in those times, the fact that you’re even functioning, how you’re not completely fucked up by that, is beyond me.”

The devilishly handsome Rob James-Collier offers some insight into his character’s story arc for the upcoming season of Downton Abbey to Out magazine.
