The Flash‘s Rick Cosnett has come out as gay.
The actor, who starred as Detective Eddie Thawne on the CW action series, revealed his sexuality to his followers in an Instagram video captioned, “Just me Hello.”
“Hi everyone. Hmm, dramatic pause,” he began his message on Thursday. “Um, I’m gay and I just wanted everyone to know because I’ve made a promise to myself to live my truth every day. And sometimes that is a really hard thing to do when you have all these subconscious things you don’t even know about from childhood and from society and from being, you know, just life.”
“So there you go. I’m sure most of you probably knew anyway,” he continued, with a laugh. “That’s actually what I wanted to say.”

Cosnett, 36, also pointed out the sty on his eye, which appeared to be red and puffy in the footage.
“I also have a sty on my eye, which really adds to the whole drama of the whole thing,” he concluded.
