One of the most powerful moments in the first season of OWN's hit drama Greenleaf was Kevin telling his wife, Charity, that he's attracted to men. Charity was blindsided. She had noticed Kevin growing distant but assumed he may have been tempted by other women. The scene was emotionally devastating.

For Tye White, the actor who plays Kevin, it was a transformative moment in a different way. For the first time in his career, he says, people were walking up to him to express gratitude for his openhearted performance. "It was my first experience with someone growing that attached to something that I brought to the table," Tye says. "It was humbling.

Here, in this exclusive clip, Tye explains why the fan reaction resonated with him on a profound level.

Tune in to the Season 2 premiere of Greenleaf on March 15, only on OWN.
