Ben Aldridge is best known for starring in shows like Our Girl, Lark Rise to Candleford, Pennyworth, and Reign. On season two of Fleabag, the actor also made a splash (pun intended) as the “arseh*le guy” who stepped out of a bathtub and let viewers see his behind in a scene with Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
In June 2020, Aldridge came out in an Instagram post where he celebrated the advances of the LGBTQ+ community and identified himself as being a part of it. “The journey to pride was a long one for me,” he wrote in the caption. “I love the LGBTQ+ community and am incredibly proud and thankful to be a part of it. So much won. So much more to fight for.”
The actor is now set to star as Jim Parsons’ love interest in the upcoming drama Spoiler Alert, a film based on Michael Ausiello’s memoir of the same name. Parsons will play Ausiello, whereas Aldridge will play Ausiello’s spouse, Kit Cowan.
All things considered, Aldridge has come a long way since playing straight characters, coming out as being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, and now being cast as a gay character based on a real person. Moviegoers are looking forward to watching this beautiful and inspiring love story unfold in Spoiler Alert.
