Richard James Cosnett, also known as the Eddie Thawne of The Flash, Wes Maxfield in The Vampire Diaries, and now Quantico's Elias Harper is a Zimbabwean-Australian actor. The cousin of Hugh Grant, 36-year-old Richard is not married yet, so is he dating?
Well, Richard has kept his personal life and relationship issues quite away from his professional career. Furthermore, Richard is rumored to be gay. So, what's the truth? Let's know.
The ABC show Quantico showcases Richard as an openly gay character. He plays the role of an openly gay FBI analyst and had a lot to say about the role.
Rick stated that,
The character is a very authentic one, a fierce, and confident character but soft at heart.
Portraying the gay character has been easy for him as he constantly said it was a very easy thing to do, but not for the media who are repeatedly making news about his sexuality.

Rick's gay role in Quantico is original and that led to his gay rumors which are all over the media.
Just because he plays the role of a gay man does not mean that he himself is gay. Cosnett is straight but considers the gay character Elias to be his alter ego.

So, the question again arises, is Richard dating? Who is his girlfriend? Well, sadly, no information on his girlfriend or dating is out but he did state his desire for dating.
