Actor J. Augusts Richards (Council of Dads, Angel, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) came out as gay on Monday in a chat with co-star Sarah Wayne Callies shared to Instagram. On Tuesday, Richards opened up even more.
Said Richards: “Yesterday was one of the best days of my life… “Thank you” feel like cheap words to describe the depths of the gratitude I feel for your support and the crushing avalanche of LOVE I felt aimed at me yesterday… For now, it will have to do. #PRIDE #LGBTQ #BlackLGBTQ #ComingOut”
Richards also announced he’d be going live today on Instagram at 7 pm ET with his co-star Steven Silver.
