Mark’s a lovely guy, very talented and very close to Jane Campion.
His mother Linda worked at the cosmetics counter in John Lewis while his father Jose played football for Stevenage before moving into a career in IT.
He also has a twin brother, James, who is 6ft tall and fair.
There hasn’t been a chance for a big celebration because of Ben’s schedule but I’m sure there will be one at some point.
For me, it’s important to keep a level of anonymity.
It was once considered career suicide, with the MGM golden boy Mickey Rooney quipping "I never knew anything about anyone being gay in Hollywood when I was working in the studios.
They weren't in closets, they were in safes." But a growing number of high profile actors have 'come out' recently with relatively little fuss." data-medium-file="https://heavyeditorial.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/ben-whishaw-8-5.jpg? w=243" data-large-file="https://heavyeditorial.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/ben-whishaw-8-5.jpg?

Mark’s a lovely guy, very talented and very close to Jane Campion.The latest is Bond actor Ben Whishaw, who confirmed that he married his partner, composer Mark Bradshaw, last year.Few were surprised, especially as he told Out magazine back in 2011: "As an actor you have total rights to privacy and mystery, whatever your sexuality, whatever you do."Whishaw's reticence to discuss being gay in interviews seems more about maintaining a private life than the fear that it could damage his career.The surprise is that this happened a year ago, last August in Sydney Australia.
