    Baby Reindeer’ actress, Jessica Gunning talks about her coming out story as a gay two years ago. During a four-episodeReign With Josh Smith‘ podcast, she revealed it was a mega thing for her. She said, “I came out in November 2022 and that was a mega, mega thing for me”.

    The actress continued, “I’m surrounded by gays, all my friends are gay and so it wasn’t that I was repressing anything. It was just that I didn’t think I could be, and I still can’t articulate it in the best way.”

    Jessica added that it was never due to her gay friends’ influence or the people she was around, rather it was her sense and she made her way out with flying colors.

    She added, “But yeah, I realized I was a big old gay, and I was like, ‘That’s what it’s been. That’s what it is.’ That was a massive moment where everything clicked and I made sense for myself then because for so long, I’d thought, and I’m a bigger woman”.

    Jessica had a connection with her character Martha in the Netflix series ‘Baby Reindeer‘ due to her homosexuality. The actress recalled, “There’s an emotional thing actually in Baby Reindeer where Donny [Richard Gadd] talks about sleeping for the first time at his parents’ house, and I told my family [at] Christmas [in 2022], and I slept for 10 hours that night.”

    Jessica calls her being gay “a little secret” that she’s “been keeping from myself, even.” Moreover, she wasn’t afraid of others’ judgment or what others might perceive her as but all that she thought about was her being gay.

    She continued, “And not in a kind of hating way,” she explained, noting that she didn’t think “any reaction would be bad” from other people. “I just kind of was like, ‘I didn’t think I could be.”
