Although Davies' exact words were not included in The Telegraph's report, he did say in an interview with The New York Times in 2021 that he thought only gay performers should be allowed to play gay characters.
Evans is “not sure about it,” but he does say that he can see Davies's (59) point of view and that he “absolutely think(s) that things do need to change.”
“But from my vantage point,” he continued, “first of all, I wouldn't have had a career if homosexual people played gay roles and straight people played straight ones.”
