Luke Evans on Our Son: “I’ve never seen this from the gay point of view”

[ Written on March 26 2024 by admin ]

The Welsh actor speaks to about his new divorce drama, his upcoming projects and the cancelled Beauty and the Beast prequel.

Luke Evans has accomplished many things in his career – from starring in major blockbuster franchises like Fast & Furious to releasing two albums as a musician – but his new film marks a first for the Welsh actor.

When production began on Our Son, which is now available to own and rent on digital platforms, it was the first time Evans – who is gay – had played an LGBTQ+ character on screen.

The film tells the story of Nicky (Evans) and Gabriel (Billy Porter), a married couple whose collapsing relationship ultimately leads to messy divorce proceedings and a fight for custody over their son, Owen (Christopher Woodley).

For Evans, it was the chance to explore a common experience from a fresh perspective that enticed him to the project.

“It’s a story that we’re so used to seeing in huge Hollywood movies, but from the straight point of view,” he tells during an exclusive interview.
