The 2022 sci-fi series The Last Bus was everything Robert Sheehan needed to get gen z’s attention. But when a millennial’s on your case, it’s no surprise that they’d want to learn everything about you, including personal matters like your sexual preferences.
Thus, here we are with answers to queries if the actor’s gay and who he’s dating in 2022.
Is Robert Sheehan Gay?
No, Robert Sheehan isn’t gay. Short and simple, he’s a straight male who has had a few “experimentations” in the past.
Ever since a child, Robert was instilled with a sense that he could do anything he wanted to do. “There was no talk of, ‘Oh it’s not the most practical thing,’” he explained. No wonder, the actor wasn’t afraid to explore his sexuality to see if there were any tinges in a gay or bisexual area.
Also, he added, “I think it would be irresponsible not to question my sexuality.”
In his youthful years, after Robert dropped out of college in Galway, he had “plenty of opportunities” to meet girls. But it wasn’t always girls. The actor shared that he has had quite a few intimate moments with dudes as well. However, it didn’t quite work out for him. “I tried it, experimented to see if it did anything for me…It didn’t, but I gave it a go,” he recalled.
So, there you go. Robert might have had a few flings with male partners in the past, but it only led him to confirm he wasn’t gay.
Also, the actor now prefers to portray male roles and so he does in The Last Bus. His character, Dalton Monkhouse is a playing tech billionaire who provided the students with the answers when it came to the psychotic robots.
Joining him this season were actors — Tom Basde, Daniel Frogson, Curtis Kantsa, Lauryn Ajufo, Lara McDonnell, Carys John, Nathanael Saleh, Moosa Mostafa, Marlie Morrelle, and Phoebe De Silva

According to that actor, dating now has become an “interesting learning challenge” — confrontation with the self and noticing old patterns emerge and then watching them dissolve. Overall, relationships have become easier for him because he knew he was just fighting with himself.
“Suddenly you’re five years old and you’re having the same feelings you had when your mother told you to go to bed early and, all of a sudden, you’re playing the role of your five-year-old self, and your girlfriend is your mother, and you might punch a wall because you’re an adult,” he explained.
