Ted Lasso Actor Has A Great Response To The Fan Theory That He's CGI

Brett Goldstein sets the record straight about whether or not his character on the Apple TV show is CGI.


There is an ongoing fan theory that the Ted Lasso character Roy Kent is not a real person portrayed by Brett Goldstein but instead is a CGI character. This is obviously not true, but the internet being what it is, the theory has a lot of momentum and is generating many funny headlines.

Goldstein himself has now responded to the wackiness. In a post on Instagram, Goldstein started off by acknowledging that there is a "f**king load of mad sh** happening on the internet today, as usual."

Goldstein presents the video to camera using his 3D Memoji character as a joke to play up the fact that he is indeed CGI and not a real human. It's a pretty excellent joke and it's sure to keep everyone talking about this, and Ted Lasso in general, which is the whole idea.

He goes on, in deadpan: "I just want to clear up something once and for all, I am a completely real normal human man who just happens to live in a VFX house and does normal human basic things like rending and buffering and transferring data. I don't know what everyone's f**king problem is."

Ted Lasso Season 2 is airing now, with new episodes debuting each Friday. GameSpot's Phil Hornshaw argues in a new editorial that Ted Lasso Season 2 is not in a slump but is instead heading for a breakdown.
