Voice actress E.G. Daily, who voiced Tommy Pickles in Nickelodeon’s hit cartoon Rugrats, said the series cast always sensed the character Betty DeVille was a lesbian, in wake of the upcoming Paramount+ reboot declaring Deville is openly gay.
“Betty is a member of the LGBTQ community, which is super awesome, because our characters on Rugrats are starting to get more specific, although, we all kind of had feelings or ideas about them,” Daily told TMZ in a recent interview.
“Now, because of the times we’re in, it’s really beautiful that people get to be who they are, and we’re embracing everybody’s freedom, and everybody’s desire to be authentic,” Daily continued. “So Betty is, yes, she’s a member of the LGBTQ community.”
The voice actress added that the cast didn’t talk openly about the character being gay in the past, because “we did [the show] a while ago,” and
