On-screen Gay Character
Manny’s portrayal of the gay character, Jonny in the television series Graceland has enabled the audience to question his actual orientation. His character shares romantic scenes with Carlito Solano played by Erik Valdez despite being hooked with Carlito’s sister, Lucia.
Graceland producer Jeff Eastin also triggered the gay rumors after he posted a tweet on 12 October 2015.
In spite of rumors, the Graceland actor revealed that he is straight. He mentioned that it was the most challenging part of his life and when the idea was brought to him, he never excluded it but was scared at the beginning. As he was scared to act, he called his acting teacher and parents who popped him several questions regarding whether he liked the script or not, and whether he liked co-actors or not. After he responded to them positively, everybody encouraged him to do the character.
The suspicion created based on his on-screen performance doesn’t become relevant since he is a married man and has a son.
