T.R. Knight who plays Dr. George O'Malley on the hit ABC drama, Grey's Anatomy, has confirmed that he is gay.
"I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there," Knight, 33, tells People. "While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."
Knight is a Minneapolis native who traces his beginnings as an actor in his city's famed Guthrie Theater.
His previous appearances include on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Law and Order: Criminal Intent.
