Frederick however, did confess to getting a degree mostly to please and pacify his mother as his focus and passion has always leaned towards acting and film making. He indeed finds joy in arts.

The kind of home he was born into encouraged Frederick Leonard to chase after his dream of acting. His parents were relatively supportive of his choice to be a part of the entertainment industry. This support was given on the condition that he would excel at it and I dare say indeed he has.

Nothing truly good ever comes easy. The pursuit of his career in the entertainment industry did not come to him easy he worked hard to attain the height he currently finds himself at.

Is Frederick Leonard Gay

It would seem that many actors who tend to stay away from women drama and the relationship scandals of the entertainment industry tend to be accused of being gay. Apparently actor Frederick Leonard is not an exception. Again they have been rumors which say the reason for the actor’s single relationship status is a pointer to the fact that his sexual preferences may not be straight.

Frederick has since come out to debunk the rumors of him being gay. He reportedly has nothing against the gay community, but says they should remain mindful of the laws and penalty of this act in Nigeria. Frederick Leonard clearly stated he is however not part of the gay community as he is interested in only women and loves them. However his love for women should not be taken out of context as he is not promiscuous.

The class act further went on to describe his dream woman as someone who is first of all God fearing. He is supposedly more focused on what is on the inside rather than what is on the outside. This is not to say he wants to go for someone ugly says the actor, but his ideal lady doesn’t have to be a beauty queen either. Her family and background should also be sound.

He looks for a woman who is industrious and has great intellectual ideas to offer, not just beauty. She must not only be compatible with him physically, but should also share his values of marriage and family. The future Mrs. Leonard should place as much importance on these values as he does, because the actor believes in a forever marriage and says divorce is not an option.

    He has been romantically linked to at least one actress ( Peggy Ovire) so I don’t think he is gay but in today’s world you can’t really tell what people do behind closed doors.

    If he wants to come out that is his choice to come out, when he good and ready to, because some actor’s and actress wait until they are ready to do so, so let him decide if he wants to come out, because three of my favorite actor on the african show are really bi- sexual, but they are scary about their careers.
