If X or Y is gay, and you say so and they're in the closet, then that can...it can possibly hurt them. That sort of reticence I understand, as an actor, or an ex-actor. But if the personality is deceased, and some co-star will still not say, then you can chalk that down to homophobia.
Coincidentally, Sargent and Tammy Grimes
were said to have been original choices for the roles of Darrin and Samantha Stephens during the initial casting of the pilot episode of Bewitched
(1964) in 1964. Sargent bowed out due to a contractual commitment to Universal. Grimes also had contractual problems. Later, Sargent went on to play Tammy's brother on her short-lived series The Tammy Grimes Show
