Star Trek Actor Ethan Peck Gay? Rumors Put To Rest
While American Actor Ethan Peck has been cast in several different TV shows such as 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) and Adopt a Sailor (2008), he is best known for his role in Star Trek Discover series as Spock. Through some twisted connection, Spock's apparent sexuality came to be associated with Peck's, resulting in some gay rumors. However, they have all been proven to be false, as Ethan Peck has a girlfriend and a very successful one at that.
Keep reading to find out more about Peck's gay rumors, his entrepreneur girlfriend, and more information on his past relationships.
Ethan’s Character In Star Trek Has Always Been Speculated To Be Gay
Peck played the legendary character of Spock in the 2017 show Star Trek: Discovery.
Spock had been speculated to be an LGBT character ever since the franchise started back in the 1960s. Fans have always theorized that Spock was in a sexual relationship with Kirk in the series.
Since he played a newly refreshed Spock in the series, that association probably extended on to him too. This resulted in some rumors about Peck being gay. On top of that, the series also featured the franchise’s first official gay couple in over 50 years of running, further amplifying the rumors.
Ethan Peck Is In A Relationship With Molly DeWolf Swenson
While the gay rumors were a stretch, to begin with, they were officially proven false when Peck's girlfriend was revealed in 2018 by Daily Mail. It was also revealed to the public that he had been dating entrepreneur Molly DeWolf Swenson since 2016.
In the Instagram post by Swenson, she posted adorable pictures of the couple together with the caption– "I have a monster crush on @ethangpeck. Think anyone knows? Happy 2 years, nug. Love you. Here’s to lots more serious swooning."
While their affair came to light only in 2018, Swenson can be seen on his Instagram even before that.
In one post dating back to 2017, he wished her a happy birthday. In the post, Peck congratulated her on turning 20 and also releasing her first single. Peck and Swenson have been featured in each other's handles ever since.
In August 2018, Swenson even congratulated Peck on his Star Trek casting and wrote about how proud she was.
Molly Is The Co-founder Of Good Today
Peck's girlfriend has done pretty well for herself. She is a thriving entrepreneur with her own company called “Good Today” which works for charity and does other philanthropic work. She is also the Head Of Global Partnerships at Community.com where she currently works full time.

Rumors Suggest Ethan Was Dating Juliana Guil Before Swenson
Rumors never seem to leave Peck's life. Side by side with his gay rumors was another rumor about his relationship with Juliana Guill. This was obviously before it was revealed that Swenson was his girlfriend.
The Juliana Guill rumors came about when Peck and Guill were repeatedly spotted on events together. One such highlight was the Los Angeles fashion show where the two were seen together in close proximity.
