Personal Life: Gay or Straight?
Wondering if the Welsh actor is gay or straight? Well, this has been a huge part of the controversies actors face, especially whenever they play a gay role in a movie. Their movie character is often mistaken to be their reality which is mostly a misconception. As a matter of fact, Taron Egerton has a straight sexual orientation and he is not a gay. The fact that he had played a gay role in the movie titled Legend left his fans with many speculations. Taron, however, has clarified the issue with his sexual orientation.
Unlike many actors who are open to the media in both their personal life and professional life, Taron seems to be different. The Englishman prefers to keep a low profile on his relationship status ever since he came under the spotlight.
Clearly, the young and talented actor isn’t married yet but the question on everyone’s mind is, who is his girlfriend? Well, the Welsh actor has talked about having a girl in his life but never disclosed who his mystery lady is. He was spotted with Emily Thomas during 2016 summer vacation and it’s likely she would be the one.
