Most gay characters in movies and TV shows are portrayed by straight actors. This can be unfortunate if you happen to be queer and seek out queer characters only to find their counterpart is straight in reality.
At the end of the day TV and movies are all acting, and being able to convincingly portray a lovey-dovey relationship or a character as different from you as possible is a part of a job well done.
So it's understandable that straight characters and gay characters are portrayed by actors who may not identify the same way sexually
