Omar Rudberg Is neither Gay nor Straight as He Does Not Want to Label His Sexuality: The Young Royals Actor Claims That He Has Dated Both Girls and Boys in the Past!

Omar Rudberg (@officialomar) is neither gay nor straight in real life. Yes, you read it right. The Young Royals cast previously stated that he does want to prefer his sexuality. He also added that he has previously fallen in love with both girls and boys. In an interview with Josia Jourdan, he stated,

I’ve seen people asking and be curious about it but I don’t feel like it’s important. Whenever I fall in love, I fall in love with that person.

Similarly, in an interview with QX, the 23-year-old actor clarified,

I don’t have a label. I’m very open-minded. Sometimes I date guys, sometimes I date girls. It varies.

Talking about his current and past relationships, the actor has been successful to keep them secret. Obviously, he has dated both girls and boys in the past, as he said. Even if he dating someone in private, we are compelled to believe he is currently single until we find anything evident enough to claim different about his relationship status.

Since Omar has just started to gather popularity in the acting industry, we shall know about him more very soon. In addition to that, he is very private when it comes to his private life. Hence, we’re unable to discover more information about him. But we promise that we’ll get back to you as soon as we get more information about him.

Here Is What Young Royals Stars Edvin Ryding & Omar Rudberg Have to Say About Their Chemistry in the Show!

In an exclusive interview with The Queer Review‘s editor James Kleinmann, Edvin Ryding and Omar Rudberg, who portray star-crossed lovers Wilhelm and Simon in the popular LGBTQ+ Netflix series Young Royals, discussed why their characters make “a couple worth fighting for” and how they each prepare for the show’s emotional scenes. Ryding told,

I think their way of communicating with each other is very beautiful and we saw a lot of that in season one. We saw them being transparent when they talk to each other, being like, ‘Hey, how are you? What’s going on?’ They ask each other that all the time and I think that’s a beautiful way of portraying a healthy relationship. They’re very affected by the circumstances around them, but the way they interact with each other is very honest and real. I think that’s why they are a couple of worth fighting for.

Similarly, Omar added:

I agree 100%. I feel like the relationship is really innocent and sweet. The first scene that we shot for season two was a deep scene, we went right into serious stuff. We’d had a pause for 10 or 11 months when we never called each other Wille or Simon. Then we were just standing there and we had to have the Simon and Wilhelm talk again and we couldn’t stop laughing because it was so funny. Then our director got a little mad after a while!
