Who is Richard Madden?
Richard Madden is a Scottish actor who became famous around the world from 2011 to 2013 when he played Rob Stark in Game of Thrones. He is also known for playing Prince Kit in Disney’s live-action Cinderella (2015) and David Budd in BBC’s Bodyguard (2018).
Even though Rob Stark was his first big role, it was his role as David Budd that won him the Golden Globe for Best Actor. He also played John Reid in the movie Rocketman, which was about Elton John (2019). Madden’s performance as Elton John’s ex-lover was so good that it only made gay rumours spread faster.
Richard Madden is Straight, Bisexual, or Gay
Journalists often ask Richard about his personal life because he played gay characters like John Reid in Rocketman and Ikaris in Eternals. He keeps his sexuality a secret.
“We need to pay more attention to diversity and making sure everyone is represented,” Richard told The Guardian about actors who play roles that don’t fit their sexualities.
He won’t talk about his private life or his sexuality. “I just don’t talk about my private life,” he told The New York Times. I don’t talk about my relationships at all.”
His Openly Gay Ex-roommate Has Been Linked to Him
The handsome actor has been linked to Brandon Flynn, who played his former roommate on the show 13 Reasons Why. Brandon is gay, and he has talked about how hard it was to come out in several interviews. People started saying that Richard and Brandon were more than just friends when they found out they lived together.
Richard or Brandon never said for sure. Sadly, the two roommates got into a fight in 2019. A source told The Sun: “Brandon has made it clear he doesn’t want to see Richard because he asked the Versace team not to invite him to a party they’re having at the beginning of December.”
Richard Madden was also often seen with Froy Gutierrez, who played Teen Wolf. It has also been said that Froy is gay, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Richard is as well.
