Lucas Cruikshank, the Nickelodeon actor most noted for his role as Fred in both iCarly and the Nick series by the same name has announced that he is gay.
TMZ reports that Cruikshank came out officially in true Fred fashion - via a YouTube video.
The 19-year-old actor is seen sitting alongside Jessie actress Jennifer Veal in the video. The pair, seen sitting in bed, begin answering a series of questions one in which asks Cruikshank, “Are you gay?”
“I’m gay,” Cruikshank replies covering his face. “It feels so weird saying it on camera… I feel awkward.”
According to Gossip Cop, the actor notes that his family has been aware of his sexuality for “three or four years,” so he hasn’t ever needed to actually discuss his sexuality.
Veal, who spends a significant amount of time with the actor according to her, quips, “Now you know he likes boys and not me!”
Cruikshank asks Veal if she knew he was gay when she first met him, she immediately replied, “Yes.” Cruikshank then presses why she’s never had to make a video saying that she is straight, to which she replies that she “thinks” she’ll “make one.”
