GREY'S ANATOMY star T.R. KNIGHT says he's gay, but hopes people don't consider that "the most interesting part of me."
The 33-year-old actor addressed rumors of his sexuality in
a statement to PEOPLE MAGAZINE Thursday.
"I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there," Knight's statement read. "While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."
Knight plays DR. GEORGE O'MALLEY on the popular ABC drama.
A former stage actor, his television credits also include
CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION and LAW AND ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT.
Knight's Grey's Anatomy character, a bumbling, puppy-eyed surgeon, has long been in love with DR. MEREDITH GREY (ELLEN POMPEO).
