Is Finn Jones Gay? How Did His Gay Rumors Start?
Game of Thrones raised the bar for fantastical worldbuilding in the world of television.
The seven kingdoms, political dynamics, personal relationships, and, of course, the sexual tensions were what made the world feel so real.
So real that the public perception of the actors changed for the massive viewership, even when the cameras weren't rolling.
One prime example here would be actor Finn Jones.
How Did Finn Jones' Gay Rumors Start?
Jones played the gay knight Ser Loras Tyrell, nicknamed the Knight of Flowers.
While Jones' character was a young, charming, and highly skilled knight and jouster who had many young women swooning over him, it was revealed that he was in a relationship with Renly Baratheon.
Turns out, Jones' portrayal of Sur Tyrell was so convincing that fans believed that he was gay off-screen as well.
However, there is no evidence backing the rumor.
He did share during an interview with the Gay Times (via Just Jared) that the gay community was happy with his portrayal of a gay character, "happy that gay characters are being portrayed but not in a sensationalized or stereotyped way."
As of this writing, Jones has not come out as gay.
It is, however, noteworthy that Jones has not had a public relationship with a girlfriend either.
That does not mean that the internet hasn't shipped him off, though.
Are Finn Jones And Jessica Henwick Dating?
Since back in 2017, Jones' posts on Instagram featured fellow actress Jessica Henwick on a rather frequent basis.
The two shared the screen for Marvel's Iron Fist.
On August 22, 2017, Jones posted a squared-off photo collage of himself and his rumored girlfriend, posing with all sorts of props in what appears to be a photobooth.
The props included a rainbow heart, a feathered scarf, a soft toy, and a red rose.
The two appeared to be having the time of their lives.
Jessica Henwick Frequented Finn Jones' Social Feeds
In another photo from November 3, 2018, Jones posted a selfie of himself and his rumored girlfriend out on a dinner date.
Both actors were all smiles for the camera, and this time, the caption only had a diamond emoji — make of that what you will.
A curious fan, in the comments section, questioned if the duo were dating for real.
The actor did not respond, but another fan chimed in, claiming that Jones and Henwick were dating a while back but had broken up since.

Still, that wasn't the last time that Henwick graced her rumored boyfriend's Instagram feed.
On August 31, 2019, Jones posted a loving birthday post for his Iron Fist co-star.
The post featured a compilation clip of the fan-shipped-couple's fun times together.
Well, Jones did once mention that he and Henwick were "ride or die." However, Jones has not made any posts for Henwick in recent times.
If they were dating for real, this might have suggested that the couple has since parted ways.
Prior to her rumored relationship with Jones, Henwick was dating Johnny Yang.
