Russell Tovey and Wentworth Miller kissed on The Flash
Russell Tovey made his debut this week, starring as The Ray, a superhero with the ability to manipulate light who dwells in the alternative reality where Germany won the World War II. In the four-part “Crisis on Earth-X” which aired on The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, fans get to see The Ray gets closer to Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller. Literally. Tovey’s character Ray Terrell, as well as the actor himself, is gay and he does not hide it. In an episode of The Flash airing this week, Terrell shares a kiss with his partner, Citizen Cold, who is an alternate-universe version of Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold who is also openly gay. The scene was a rare case of a gay kiss being aired on primetime television and two actors who were fighting for their community being represented are now really excited, as well as the audience.
