âABCâs hit show Greyâs Anatomy will feature its first gay male surgeon, Dr. Nico Kim, portrayed by actor Alex Landi.
A recent interview with Travis Mills on Beats I at Apple Music, Landi who is straight stresses the importance of gay Asian character, especially on prime-time networks.
âIâm just glad that I can give everyone a voice,â Landi says. âAsians are represented, I think, by less than 3 percent in entertainment, LGBTQ being less than 1 percent, so for them to combine both of those categories into one role is super special, and Iâm so happy that I can take that on.â
Asked about the challenges of playing a gay character, Landi says he doesnât want to mess anything up or offend anyone.
âI just hope I do it right,â he says. âI just hope the way I do it is accepted by everyone.â
Furthermore, he states: âI want to take these two categories and make everyone look strong. I want to get rid of that stereotype and give them a different look on the LGBTQ community. I just hope Iâm making everyone proud.â
Currently, the 15th season of Grey Anatomy is on holiday hiatus but will return on ABC in January.
He's defiantly worth looking at?
