The young actor who shot to fame as high-pitched viral video star Fred has come out about his sexuality.

Lucas Cruikshank, 19, revealed he is gay in a video.

The teen, who also starred in the Disney Channel show Jessie, explained close friends and family members have known about his sexuality for years but he never felt the need to make an announcement to the world.

Ironically, his hyper Fred character was always telling fans about his crush on a girl, named Judy.
