Single All the Way is among the barrage of Christmas rom-com dropping this season on holidays. The 2 December 2021-release carried more weight also because it is the first gay holiday romantic comedy film given by Netflix. With that being said, let us introduce you to actor Philemon Chambers who stars as Nick in this film.
Keep reading this ‘Philemon Chambers Bio’ and find out if he is gay, if he has a partner, and more.
Philemon Chambers On Single All The Way
First, let us tell you, that his first name is pronounced “phil-LEE-mun”.
Now, the rest. Philemon had been struggling to make it as an actor since 13-year-old. So, he had only a few small roles on TV series like Criminal Minds and All Rise on his resume, when Single All the Way came around. It had been just two weeks after he got better from COVID when the audition came.
Two days after he sent in his audition tape, the casting director Jonathan Clay Harris had reached out to him.
Philemon plays Nick, best friend to Peter (actor Michael Urie), a children’s author and handyman who accompanies Peter from Los Angeles to his hometown, for the holidays. Nick is in love with Peter, but Peter is distracted by James (Luke Macfarlane). An obvious love triangle.
With this, Philemon is also making history as the first Black actor to star in an LGBTQ Christmas rom-com.
Is Philemon Chambers Gay IRL?
Yes. Philemon Chambers is openly gay and identifies as queer in real life as well.
Talking to The Holywood Reporter, he shared how Single All the Way gave him the confidence to fully come out. “Going through this role with Nick, I became accepting of myself even more”.
Before that, when he was new to the industry, he said, one could not say who you were open, without judgment.
Meanwhile, growing up, Philemon did not know that he was gay. “You kind of suppress it. And I did that for years. I tried to act very masculinely.” That continued even into adulthood and his professional life, likely until the Netflix show.
Philemon Chambers Partner
Philemon Chambers is seemingly someone who would not share much about his dating life even if he was in a relationship. For now, because a partner is noticeably absent from his social media grid, people had it believing that he is single.
In an above-mentioned interview, of November 2021, Philemon sure had a lot to say around the topics like the representation he needed to embrace his identity as a gay Black man. But, he appeared to have steered away from relationship questions there too.
You may give him a follow on his Instagram @philemonchambers, Twitter @TheRealPhilemon, and ‘Philemon Chambers’ in case he changes his ways.
