In a statement via U.K.’s Daily Mail, Whishaw’s rep confirmed the British actor is gay and has been married to his partner, Australian composer Mark Bradshaw, for a year now.
“Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work,” his spokesman said Friday night. “Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.”
Whishaw is one of the finest actors of his generation on both stage and screen in UK.
His movies include last year’s ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Atlas.’ ‘The Tempest’ in 2010 and ‘Bright Star’ in 2009.
