Speaking to gay star news, Whelan recently said that she has no problem being typecast as a lesbian. It is a trend which began with her kiss with a female character in Game of Thrones and has continued till the Shakesperean comedy The Upstart Crow. She said:

“Every single thing I do, there’s a lesbian touch to it. Long may I continue to be typecast, if that’s the way it goes.”

Whelan had spoken about her kiss with the character of Ellaria on Thrones being improvised one and said:

It wasn’t directed that we would kiss, It just seemed like something we should do. We led it, very much so. It was meant to be a suggestion [of flirting] and then it became more sexual than we expected because it seemed right. There was only a skeleton crew working because the rig could only take so much weight, so we were left very much on our own. And who wouldn’t want to kiss Indira? I mean, come on!

Well, it seems like Whelan is turning into quite a gay icon! Let us know your reactions to the news in the comments below.
