About Ray Gillette

Ray Gillette is one of the more hardworking ISIS agents on the animated TV series Archer, where he is voiced by the show’s creator Adam Reed.  He has always hidden his homosexuality from his father, and also his brother who is a marijuana farmer, however at his workplace he is openly gay. He has been married before, to a lesbian woman he met at a ‘pray away the gay’ camp, however this relationship didn’t last for obvious reasons.

A running joke on the show is Ray ending paralyzed, usually as a result of Archer’s reckless actions. In one episode though, the paralysis is for real. This turned his feelings of general resentment towards Archer into a more serious hatred, and since that time he has been particularly nasty towards him, even seeming to want his fellow agent dead. Following the paralysis however, he was given bionic legs but he has a fear of becoming a full cyborg if he continues to be paralyzed.
