'HawthoRNe's' Vanessa Lengies didn't suspect her character was lesbian, either

It's one thing for the viewers to be shocked by a character coming out, but it's another when the actress who plays the character had no suspicions that she was in her second season of playing a lesbian. That was the case for "HawthoRNe's" Vanessa Lengies, who plays Kelly Epson.

When I read it, I was like, 'Really? I didn't picture that,'" Lengies, 25, tells Zap2it. "But, it's so fantastic that I didn't picture that and that it seems so unexpected."

There was some elegance in the way that Kelly came out. It was just a statement to a teen patient who was struggling with her own sexuality. Kelly told the patient she was lesbian to help her see that she wasn't alone. She then returned to her duties, just another nurse at James River Hospital, who saw no need to talk about her sexuality until that very moment.
