Actor Victor Garber, who played Jack Bristow on Alias and the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in Titanic, confirmed this week what he thought people already knew.
Yes, he is gay.
"I don't really talk about it, but everybody knows," Garber, 63, told Greg Hernandez of the blog Greg in Hollywood, and was later confirmed by E!.
The actor, who has been nominated for six Emmy Awards, including three for Alias, has hardly kept it a secret.

The royal wedding may be over, but the TV movies keep on coming – and former Alias star Victor Garber is getting in on the action.
On the heels of the Lifetime movie about the newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Garber signed on to play William's father in the Hallmark Channel's, William and Catherine: A Royal Romance. And it was a distinctive physical feature that got him the part.
"I'm playing Prince Charles, of course – we have the same ears," Garber, 62, told PEOPLE at the New York City Ballet Spring gala on Wednesday. "Nobody knows how he is with his boys privately, and that's what this movie is about. It's a very sweet story."
