Sorry I can't answer your question but I share your pain...I was crazy over David Hyde-Pierce!

Brendan Coyle, born David Coyle 2 December 1963 in Corby, Northamptonshire, keeps his relationships quiet. There is no information on his marital status.
so yes.

Does it matter?

Not like he's up for grabs is it?

Just enjoy.

Lillith, if you fancy him then what difference does it make if he is gay or not.

I fancy Cynthia Nixon (Miranda in Sex & The City) but I did not stop when I found out she was a lesbian, as she is still the same person and looks the same.

The other thing is, it is highly unlikely that you are going to meet Brendan Coyle, fall in love and live happily ever after, just like I will never meet Cynthia Nixon (not sure my wife would let me anyway ) so if you fancy him, you fancy him.

I remember seeing him for the first time in a costume drama many years ago - I think it was Catherine Cookson's The Glass Virgin and I swear, he took my breath away. I fell instantly in love with him. No-one (on the telly) has ever had that affect on me.

Why does it matter what his sexuality is?

Like you have a chance anyway.

Hey mine was Rock Hudson when he was in Pillow Talk with Doris Day...now I know that story was never true...he didn't love and end up with Doris.

Doesanybody know for sure if he is gay ? There is always a chance, slim I admit, that our paths may cross and he will fall madly in love with me but not if he's gay. On second thoughts, it's the character he plays in Downton Abbey that I fancy and in real life he might not be so nice.

Niles Crane is NOT gay. The actor playing the part is gay. Big difference. Niles is my favourite character of all times, and David Hyde-Pierce did a fabulous job portraying him.
In all honesty, I wasn't too surprised when it emerged that David Hyde-Pierce is gay.

I was more surprised when it came out that Neil Patrick Harris /Dr Dougie Howser is.

I only found out last week that Richard Chamberlain was American! About the only time I've encountered him is in the Musketeer films and I (young at the time) assumed he was English like Oliver Reed, Michael York and Frank Finley (not to mention about 80% of the rest of the cast).

An assumption that stayed with me for decades
