Evan Mock Teases "Pretty Lit" Threesome on Gossip Girl

Evan Mock

HBO Max's Gossip Girl continuation premieres today, and fans are eagerly anticipating all the twists and turns to come. Evan Mock, who plays Aki, opened up to MR PORTER about exploring his character's sexuality on screen.

Aki is a high schooler who is exploring the confines of gender roles and sexuality, which resonated with the actor. Model/skateboarder Mock teased one particularly intimate scene, saying:

Me and my girlfriend in the show are super into this dude, Max, and we have a threesome. It’s pretty lit. I’m not actually gay in real life, but the character is… I guess… bisexual. I had to make out with [co-star] Thomas [Doherty] and I feel like I’m playing the character, but, for my personal life, I’m also seeing if I like it or not.. 

Reporter Alex Frank asked if he enjoyed it. Mock replied:

No, but you’re asking yourself questions like, Why is [kissing a man] so much weirder? I think it has to do with social norms and all that.
