Actors & Roles Blur Lines

Most actors love the opportunity to embody different characters.  Some actually physically transform themselves to play certain roles – Ed Norton, Meryl Streep, Christian Bale, Charlize Theron, and even Renée Zellweger (admittedly, she likely had some help from a doctor’s scapel).  Nowadays, it seems the line between actor and character is less defined.  Does anyone have a doubt that Miranda on And Just Like That… is going to dabble in lesbianism?  Does every character Cynthia Nixon plays from now on have to be interested in women?  Perhaps all the years that gays fought to be accepted playing straight roles were for naught.
