- Some fans of Ted Lasso have been suggesting that Roy Kent is a CGI character.
- Roy Kent actor has a hilarious response to the viral conspiracy theory.
- Keep up with all of the latest pop culture news here.
Earlier this week, an absolutely bizarre theory about Ted Lasso made the rounds on the internet and it had to do with the Roy Keny character played by British comedian, actor, and podcaster Brett Goldstein: given the absurdness of the claim, an inordinate amount of people seem to believe that Kent is, actually, a computer-generated character, a.k.a. CGI.
Goldstein, who obviously became aware of the viral conspiracy and decided to address it on his Instagram:
“There’s a f***ing load of mad s*** happening on the internet today as usual, and I just want to clear up something once and for all,” Goldstein said while hilariously using a bitmoji filter.
“I am a completely real, normal human man who just happens to live in a VFX house, and does normal human basic things like rendering and buffering and transferring data.”
There you have it, folks: Brett Goldstein, a.k.a. Roy Kent, is a very real, human man who does totally normal human being things. Controversy over. That said, him being CGI would explain how Roy Kent is able to be here, there, and every-f***ing-where all at once.
The seventh episode of Ted Lasso season two, “Headspace”, hit AppleTV+ on Friday, September 3. The series has already been renewed for a third season.
