Former Desperate Housewives’ star Charlie Carver has come out as gay.
You may well know Charlie as one of the naughty Scarvo twins on the (much missed) ABC hit Desperate Housewives, well now he’s come out as gay in a series of Instagram posts.
After Desperate Housewives Charlie went on to star in Teen Wolf as Ethan, a gay character who made headlines when MTV aired the first gay kiss, between his character and Danny played by Keahu Kahuanui.
The 27-year-old explained his worries about coming out in the entertainment industry a series of posts on Instagram.
“If I came out, I feared I would be limiting myself to a type, to a perception with limits that I was not professionally comfortable with.”
“Things in this business have changed and will continue to.
“I know that because of all of the brave men and women who’ve come out, self-identified, or couldn’t have possibly ever been ‘In’.
“So to them, I am also forever grateful.”
He took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support after he came out saying,
