Robert Sheehan, gaining critical acclaim – alongside vast attention from a seemingly “thirsty” fan base – currently stars in the Netflix hit The Umbrella Academy. The show follows seven siblings, all with unique superhuman abilities and suppressed childhood trauma, as they struggle to overcome their differences and prevent an imminent apocalypse. Robert Sheehan portrays Klaus Hargreeves on the show. An openly gay character affectionately labeled “The Seance,” Klaus can commune with the dead (when he’s not too drugged up to use his ability). Whether from watching Robert Sheehan on the show, or just out of pure curiosity, many fans have taken to the internet wondering whether the actor is gay in real life. Robert Sheehan recently sat down for an interview with the Irish Examiner to discuss his past roles, his romantic life, as well as his current role as Klaus Hargreeves on The Umbrella Academy. When asked about his sexuality, Robert Sheehan openly communicated the extent of his homosexual experimentation, which he did not owe anyone.
“I think it would be irresponsible not to question your sexuality. I had a couple of experiences when I was younger with dudes where I tried it, experimented to see if it did anything for me…It didn’t, but I gave it a go!”
Buzz.IE There you have it, folks. Robert Sheehan has experimented with men in the past; however, it did not do anything for him. So, if you’re wondering whether or not Robert Sheehan is gay, he has said no (in so many words).
