Wondering if the Welsh actor is gay or heterosexual? Well, this has been a large part of the controversy actors face, especially when they play a gay role in a film. Their film character is often mistaken for their reality, which is usually a mistake. In fact, Taron Egerton has a heterosexual sexual orientation and he is not gay.
