‘House of the Dragon’s Freddie Fox Appeared in These Queer Shows

Freddie Fox is an English film and stage actor, who is currently starring in the ‘Game of Thrones’ spin-off ‘House of the Dragon’ Season 2.


In the hit series, Fox is portraying the character of Ser Gwayne Hightower, who is described as the “arrogant son of ​​Ser Otto (Rhys Ifans) and the brother of Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke).” However, before starring in ‘House of the Dragon’, he first played the role of Freddie Baxter in the 2015 LGBTQ+ shows ‘Cucumber’ and ‘Banana’.

Freddie Baxter is described to be an “arrogant” bisexual character, who was known for “his nihilistic, party-hard lifestyle and penchant for casual sex, after getting chucked out of university,” as per PinkNews




In a 2015 interview with The Telegraph, Fox was asked about his sexuality, to which he was noted to have an “appreciation of both sexes.” 

“I’ve had girlfriends, but I wouldn’t wish to say ‘I am this or I am that’, because at some time in my life I might fall in love with a man,” he stated.

The actor continued,

“I hope that I am the type of person who would fall in love with another person, as opposed to a sex. Most of my life to date has been as a straight man, but who knows what will happen next?”

“It sounds evasive, but I don’t think you can necessarily say you’re one thing or another until you’re 100 years old and you’ve done it all,” Fox further expressed.

  1. I noticed him in the Guy Ritchie movie which we went to see for the beefcake, which sadly (unless you’re really into men in clothes) was a tad lacking. But he looked good in his few scenes (many in uniform) enough that I wanted to look him up.

    The problem with these shows, in addition to them being UK products, is that you can probably hopefully find all the worthwhile scenes with Fox in a supercut on line, versus having to sit through these 16 episodes, when he’s not the lead.

    Love his quote on sexuality, I’ve read that before from others, it’s a better way to handle it than some have!
