Blind Item #13 - Reader Blind

Many decades ago, a behind the scenes push led to a change in policy. This very popular long running tv series had a casting change. One actor left the show and another came in playing a different character but one that had the same type of relationship with the protagonist(s).  The new actor was gay and never tried to hide it. During a promotional junket, he brought along his male partner as other actors from the same show brought along their wives and husbands. The network made a fuss about this but he stood his ground and they gave in. This actor finally came out publicly a few years before his death.
