Catching Feelings with Gavin MacIntosh
The Fosters is building a reputation for pushing boundaries on TV and we’re loving every bit of it. A couple of weeks ago, the show shook up the Internet in the best way with the youngest same-sex kiss in TV history. We caught up with Gavin MacIntosh, who plays one half of the fan-shipped couple “Jonnor” (that’s Jude and Connor, for the uninitiated) to talk about the big kiss.
“It has been a very positive experience,” he confirmed. “Any negatives we have received, are minor, compared to the important impact it has had on so many people. The Fosters fans are very loyal, and I am grateful for their support over the last two seasons.”
We also asked Gavin what fans can look forward to in tomorrow night’s finale. “Connor will suffer consequences by his actions, and over the next few episodes we will learn what happened and how this event will affect Jude and Connors relationship. Connors dad will definitely not be happy.” We can barely wait for the episode to air! We took the opportunity to ask Gavin some of our favorite, emotional questions. That’s right: We invited Gavin for a round of Catching Feelings. Just in case you don’t know, Catching Feelings, is a series in which we ask our favorite male celebrities to get all kinds of sensitive with us and open up about what makes their hearts do backflips, of both the good and bad variety.
