Love life and wife
After Landon began acting in the “Hemlock Grove” TV series, rumors started circulating the internet that the actor is gay – being very close to his best friend Avan Jogia, a Canadian actor, made the rumors seem true. In the series, Landon and Bill Skarsgard play two characters who have a kind of a romance going on between them – neither of them seem to have a problem with it but are rather enjoying the plot. Landon has also stated that it wasn’t in the script for the sexual tension to be developed between them, but it rather just happened.
Landon currently appears to be single and his sexuality is still under a question mark – it is known that he was once in a relationship with Charlotte Arnold, a Canadian actress. When asked during an interview about his celebrity crush, Landon admitted that he is an admirer of Ellie Kemper, who is popular for starring in “The Office” TV series.

Landon is a fan of all kinds of art, which he credits to his mother – he enjoys visiting museums and attending photography exhibitions.
