In an interview with The Independent in 2013, Andrew stated,
Mercifully, these days people don’t see being gay as a character flaw. But nor is it a virtue, like kindness. Or a talent, like playing the banjo. It’s just a fact. Of course, it’s part of my make-up, but I don’t want to trade on it. I am a private person; I think that’s important if you’re an actor.
But there’s a difference between privacy and secrecy, and I’m not a secretive person. Really I just want to get on with my job, which is to pretend to be lots of different people. Simple as that.
Ever since then, Andrew voiced out for gay rights and supported gay marriage openly. But he kept his love life low profile and out from the spotlight.
As of now, he is not caught in any affairs with a boyfriend. However, he mentioned in the interview that he had a long term partner. But he didn't disclose the identity of the one he was really dating.
