Though the movie covered the honest story about friendship and male friendship, Ned's sexuality was ambiguous. During Fionn's June 2017 interview with Cinephiled, he talked a bit about his on-screen character as Ned and the issue about LGBT in the movie. Unlike the past days where agents and managers discouraged the actors from playing gay roles, the Irishman thinks that times have changed now. He admits that today, one can accept their sexuality as a part of their identity.
Fionn also talked about the passage of the marriage equality vote in Ireland and said that it was an inspiration for most of the peoples. The equity favored the Irish kids in school who were struggling to come out with their gay identities openly. He also admitted that it is still difficult for LGBTQ kids who face all those fierce behavior due to their queer sexuality.
Though Fionn is an LGBTQ supporter, behind the camera, his sexuality has remained ambiguous as like his on-screen character Ned. Currently, he is reportedly not dating anyone and has remained focused on his acting career. He has shared a few details relating to his personal life that has secluded the information about his possible girlfriend.
