 Disneyland’s Gaston Actor Breaks Character After Woman’s Inappropriate Touch

A trip to Disneyland is often a magical experience, but sometimes the behavior of guests can be disrespectful towards those who bring the magic to life.

Such was the case with a visitor who overstepped boundaries with a performer playing Gaston, the charming yet egotistical character from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The incident, captured in a viral video, shows a female guest at a meet-and-greet session crossing the line of acceptable behavior.

As she approached Gaston for a photo, she suddenly placed her hands on the actor’s chest without any prior warning or consent. This prompted the performer to break character immediately. He calmly but firmly instructed her to leave. Initially, the guest appeared confused and continued smiling, seemingly unsure if the performer was serious. However, when she leaned in again, the actor reiterated his command, saying “out” and “leave,” while pointing out that there were children present, emphasizing the importance of maintaining appropriate behavior in such a family-friendly environment. The woman then complied and left.

The video was shared on TikTok by user @evansnead, who urged viewers to respect the performers: “Please do not be that person.” He warned that harassing the characters would not be taken lightly and advised visitors to understand the boundaries of personal space, especially in a professional setting. He highlighted that the performers are there to ensure guests have a pleasant experience, but they are also working and deserve the same respect as any employee at their workplace.

The reaction to the performer’s handling of the situation was overwhelmingly positive. One commenter praised the performer for his response, stating, “I’m glad he did what he did. Her sense of entitlement was real and I never say that lightly.” Another highlighted the importance of the example set by the performer, noting, “I love that Gaston did this because there certainly were kids watching, and it shows a perfect example of what to do when someone touches you inappropriately.”

This incident serves as a reminder to respect the boundaries of performers and acknowledge that they, too, deserve to feel safe and respected while doing their job.
