There was plenty to interest gay audiences in Penny Dreadful. The fact Reeve Carney is incredibly good looking was a bit of a bonus, and it certainly didn’t hurt when he had a major kissing scene with Josh Hartnett.
It took many people by surprise as until the fourth episode, there’d been little hint either character might enjoy the company of gentlemen in more than a friendly manner.
Carney was ar Comic Con and talked to TooFab at the much-talked about kiss, saying “I knew that something like that would likely happen at some point and I figure, you know, you could certainly do a lot worse than Josh Hartnett.”
He adds, “It’s probably all downhill for me in terms of any man-on-man action I might have on the show,’ he says. ‘They’ll have to keep their game high!”
His character, Dorian Gray, will reportedly get a new love interest in the second series, although there’s no news on whether it will be a man or a woman.
