Actress Bex Taylor-Klaus, the star of acclaimed TV series The Killing and MTV's Scream series, has come out as gay.
The 22-year-old, who has also appeared in action series Arrow, tweeted the news to fans on Friday (18Nov16).
Her post read: "hello my name is bex and yes the rumors are true I am v gay."
In a follow-up YouNow chat with fans online, the young actress admitted she was "terrified" about the thought of revealing she was a lesbian.
"Part of why I’m coming out is because there's so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community right now and it’s important for us not to halt progress out of fear," she wrote.
"Yes, it’s a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I'm not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I'm strong. I am who I am and you can't take that away from me."
