As is so often the case in teen movies, the film's climax arrives with a huge romantic gesture by Simon, asking Blue on a public message board to meet him on the local ferris wheel and come out once and for all. Naturally, half the school gathers to see if Blue will show, and just when Simon and all his friends think Blue has stood him up, Bram suddenly appears and jumps into Simon's carriage.
They kiss. Their friends and classmates cheer. And a quiet but powerful landmark in Hollywood history — the first same-sex teen romance released by a major studio — reaches its happy ending. The scene also became a landmark moment for Lonsdale. Since he was 13, he's known he was attracted to women and men. He'd come out privately to Greg Berlanti , the film's openly gay director — as well as the executive producer of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
But as he sat up in that ferris wheel shooting a swoon-y moment of same-sex romance, it hit the thenyear-old that he still hadn't come out to any of the actors surrounding him in the scene. And here I am, still afraid. I'm still not comfortable enough. At the wrap party for Love, Simon , Lonsdale finally came out to his fellow actors.
And a few weeks later, he came out to the world. In , an LGBTQ actor declaring their sexuality publicly isn't the monumental event it was 10 years ago, or even five years ago.
Still, the fraught and painful path Lonsdale took to get to that moment makes plain how profoundly meaningful this sweet, uncomplicated coming-of-age movie could be for its audience — and was for one actor in particular. Love, Simon isn't the first time Lonsdale has played a gay character. Raised in Australia, he got his first major break as an actor on the local TV series Dance Academy , as Ollie, a cocksure young dancer and one half of a beloved same-sex couple.
Lonsdale, however, was nothing like him. For years, Lonsdale had come to believe that his own attraction to men as well as women set him precariously apart. It made me truly believe that it was wrong to be this way. It wasn't even that Lonsdale recalled hearing anyone explicitly tell him he shouldn't be attracted to men. It was more just a conviction that he'd absorbed from the world around him.
This is how it is. I didn't even think, Oh, I could change that. He just couldn't see himself doing it. With his ambitions to become a successful actor and musician looming in mind, Lonsdale said that at 13 years old, he made a pact with himself.
