Nolan Gould is an American actor who, despite a few other appearances, is best known for his role as the youngest child of the Dunphy family, Luke, on the ABC comedy series Modern Family. While we know little about Nolan’s personal life other than his role on the sitcom, many fans are curious about whether Nolan Gould is gay or straight. So let’s find out!
Is Nolan Gould gay?
Modern Family actor Nolan Gould has won a special place in everyone’s hearts with his portrayal of Luke Dunphy in the comedy series. Over the course of the show, there have been a few times where we felt like Luke might be gay. Especially the scene in the last season when Manny told Luke that all the poems he wrote were for Luke.
And the curiosity of fans knows no bounds when they wonder if the actor is gay in his life. To answer the question based on all the information we have available from Nolan’s public life, we can say that the actor is not. He even revealed in a conversation with Ellen DeGeneres that he is in a relationship with pediatric nurse Lindsay Schweitzer.
Nolan Gould made his acting debut in the 2007 film “The McPassion”, in which he had a small role. He then starred in the films Waiting Room and Sunny and Share Love You. The following year, he starred in the movie “Montana.” He had his first major role in the 2009 film ‘Space Buddies’. Along with Nolan, the film was directed by Robert Vince and starred Jason Earles, Diedrich Bader, Lochlyn Munro, Bill Fagerbakke and Kevin Weisman. That same year, he played a supporting role in the movie ‘Hysteria’.
After starring in the mockumentary family comedy “Modern Family,” he rose to even greater fame. Jay Pritchett and his family live in suburban Los Angeles and the story focuses on them. Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell and Sarah Hyland starred in the series, which was directed by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan. The show received critical acclaim from critics.
The show has received 22 Primetime Emmy Awards and six Writers Guild of America Awards to date. In addition to his role as Luke in Modern Family, Gould has guest-starred on a number of other TV shows. Over the years there have been “Good Luck Charlie”, “RL Stine’s The Haunting Hour” and “Sofia the First” among others. In the romantic comedy ‘Friends with Benefits’, Nolan Gould played a supporting role alongside Justin Timberlake and Will Gluck. Nolan can also be seen in films such as ‘Ghoul’ (2012), ‘The to Do List’ (2013) and ‘Field of Lost Shoes.
Why do fans love Luke Dunphy?
Luke was a sweet boy who matured into a young man over the course of the show. But the character lacked substance. He was the youngest of the Dunphy children. And Claire and Phil thought he would never achieve anything, which was a shame. He was more interested in playing pranks and being a naughty kid than studying.
By season 11, Luke had gathered his wits and was preparing to leave the nest for the University of Oregon. Fans would have liked to see a more mature Luke because they never did. His lack of substance sometimes made him unsympathetic. But his chatter with Manny and the quirky problems he always finds himself in are simply adorable.
