Matilda Freeman is a British actress and singer-songwriter. This week, Matilda Freeman came out as bisexual. In a reddit AMA, the actress shared she was raised in a Christian household, but never felt comfortable with her own sexuality. Her entire life, she felt she must be straight, and always wondered how it would feel to be with someone of the same sex. When she was 18, she finally decided to come out, as she felt like her only option was to get a reality check and be honest with herself.
Matilda Freeman, a popular character on the television series Jane The Virgin, recently came out as bisexual. She commented in a Facebook post that she’s not interested in labeling herself or being put into a box: “I just want to be honest and open about my sexuality. My sexuality is mine and I’m taking it seriously.”
Former Coronation Street star Matilda Freeman answered a fan’s question about her sexuality in a question-and-answer session on Instagram. The actress came out of the closet as bisexual for the first time.
Freeman, who played the character Summer Spellman in ITV’s long-running British series from 2017 to last year, interacted with her followers on Instagram in a series of Ask Me Anything stories. One fan took the time to ask her about her sexuality and asked if it was too personal for her to answer.
The actress revealed that she is bisexual and wrote two heartwarming emojis in her story on IG. Soon after, she posted thank you notes on social media showing that she had received love and support after her performance.
I really didn’t expect it and that means everything to me, you guys are amazing. I love you all, the actress said, overwhelmed by the appreciation she received.
Coronation Street spoilers – Reason for departure
After Freeman candidly answered her most personal question, Corrie’s fans took the opportunity to ask her why she left the show. Viewers last saw the show’s star on screen in August 2020, before she left to visit her grandmother Geraldine, and were shocked to see the character re-cast just months later with actress Harriet Bibby in November.
Freeman said leaving Corrie opens the door to new possibilities. When you work for Corrie, you have a contract, which means you can’t work on anything else while you’re there – so it was pretty limited, she explained.
After leaving Coronation Street, she played Lilly in The Last Boy and Livia in Lifeline.
Corrie Spoilers – Representing different spectrums of sexuality
Throughout the history of Coronation Street, there have been many bisexual characters: Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley) became the first regular gay character in the show, Hayley Cropper (Julie Hesmondalg) became the first transgender character in a British show in 1998, Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) became the first lesbian character in the show, etc.
The show’s latest bisexual romances include former lovers Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) and Nina Lucas (Molly Gallagher) and the ongoing love triangle between Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley), Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) and Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank), who must choose between the two for the show’s first same-sex wedding, scheduled later this year.
Not only Freeman, but also his opposite number Kimberly Hart-Simpson spoke out earlier this year that she is pansexual, after claiming to be bisexual.

The Welsh actress is known as Nicky Wheatley, a sex worker. She left the series last September, but has reserved the right to return if she can.
I’ve gone out with men, women, transgenders… Gender doesn’t matter to me, Simpson told Mirror Online.
Dolly-Rose Campbell hopes for more bisexual representatives in the media. She has also been candid about her bisexuality and encouraged soap operas to feature more bisexual characters on television.
If bisexuality were portrayed more often in shows that are part of everyday life – as Corrie did with Hayley – it would change attitudes and show that we are less different, the actress explained.
