Actor Chris New. He was in the gay film Weekend in 2011, although most of his work has been on stage. When he graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 2006, he wanted to come out of the closet. When his agent advised him not to do so, he fired her. His straight Weekend co-star Tom Cullen saw his career skyrocket after the film. (He just left Downtown Abbey) But despite rave reviews for his theater work, New's career continues to float along on stage.
