"...outside knowledge..."

Not always. An actor's sexuality, at odds with that of his character,
will sometimes be obvious from his performance itself, due precisely to
his failings as an actor.  In other cases, identity politics may lead a
gay actor to ignore or even flout his chameleonic mandate.
