Gordon Thomson Comes Out as Gay, and Thinks New 'Dynasty' is Appalling

Golden Globe and Indie Series Award nominee Gordon Thomson is not happy with the 2017 CW reboot of Dynasty, the smash 1980s soap opera on which he starred as Adam Carrington. In an interview with The Daily Beast, the actor trashed the remake, calling it "utter s—t."

"I have had a look at the new Dynasty and I am appalled," Thomson says in the interview. "What the f—k is the CW doing? It’s utter s—t."

He also takes aim at original Dynasty creators Richard and Esther Shapiro, who are executive producers on The CW show.

"The acting is dreadful, truly dreadful. The writing is appalling. I don’t know what possessed the Shapiros to bother," he says, before claiming the reboot would not have the approval of original EP Aaron Spelling. "Why call it Dynasty? It’s nothing to do with Dynasty at all. It's insulting. If the afterlife exists — it doesn’t, but if it did — Aaron would be having major fits in his grave. And the audience the CW is aiming for is going to think it’s s–t because it is such s–t that a cretinous 6-year-old would not be interested. It's abominable."

Thomson also took the opportunity to officially come out as gay. “It’s not something I’ve ever announced,” the actor admits. “I’m assuming that people know, and now that I’m my age that’s fine. I don’t go out of my way because it’s my generation, I think. I’m probably as homophobic as any gay man alive because of my background.”

Thomson has most recently starred in Ladies of the Lake, Winterthorne and Dynasty.

Dynasty premieres at 9 p.m. ET October 11 on The CW. Watch the trailer below.
