Jonathan Groff: 'Sad' Over Looking Cancelation but Overwhelmed by Fans' 'Outpouring of Love and Support'

Originally posted 04/13/2015 06:15PM

Looking may have been canceled, but its star, Jonathan Groff, isn't done advocating for the LGBT community – or its representation in entertainment.

The out actor will be honored with the LGBT scholarship organization the Point Foundation's Point Horizons Award for his activism Monday night in New York City. In addition to acting in gay projects including Looking and The Normal Heart, Groff, 30, says advocating for the gay community has always been a passion.

As the star points out in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE: "There's not a lot of gay programming on TV," which is why he's disappointed Looking, which followed the lives of several out gay men in San Francisco, was canceled by HBO last month. (A finale special is reportedly in the works: Groff doesn't have any details yet but is excited "to get to say goodbye.")

Looking's Raúl Castillo Dishes on What It's Like to Make Out with Jonathan Groff

Originally posted 03/22/2015 09:30PM

On Looking, HBO's hit dramedy following the lives of gay men living in San Francisco, Raúl Castillo plays Richie, a onetime love interest of lead Jonathan Groff.

The actor was originally meant to appear in only two episodes, but viewers responded so well to his out-of-the-closet Mexican-American character that he became a series regular.

"Since the pilot episode and from that point forward, Richie is treated with a real sensitivity and a certain dedication – he's a multilayered character. The writers had a real sense of wanting to bring an authentic person to the screen," says Castillo, 37. "It was exciting to be able to take part in that, to be able to bring that character to life."

PEOPLE caught up with the rising star ahead of the show's season finale:
