Jack Coleman on Steven (1983) "Impossible to do Gay Stories"

Here are a couple UPI articles released in 1983 featuring interviews with Jack Coleman who inherited the role of "Dynasty's" gay heir Steven Carrington, following Al Corley's dismissal.

Obviously, the actor found playing a gay man a great challenge (it's visible on screen) and the articles may give you some insight into how he felt about it at the time.

Although I found him to be a more physically attractive Steven, Coleman's reluctance to play a gay man did spoil the sensitive and humane character Al Corley established a couple of season prior.
