'Scooby-Doo' Alum Linda Cardellini Reacts To News About Velma Being A Lesbian

last year
In two feature-length "Scooby-Doo" movies, the mega-smart Velma Dinkley of Mystery Inc. had an implied romance with a male waiter in the 2002 film and started a relationship with Seth Green’s character, Patrick Wisely, in the 2004 sequel. Almost two decades later, a new animated "Scooby-Doo" movie is reaching out to a new generation, and the rumors of Velma being gay have now been officially confirmed to be true. "Scooby-Doo" alum Linda Cardellini has now shared her reaction to the news of her former character coming out as a lesbian.

In the new animated movie "Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!," Velma develops a crush on Coco, a high-end Halloween costume designer. Linda Cardellini, who portrayed our favorite brainiac detective in the two aforementioned live-action movies, spoke to Entertainment Weekly promoting the third and final season of "Dead to Me," and she shared her feelings about one of her beloved characters being a lesbian in the new animated film.
