1. This is British actor Ben Whishaw.
3. Or if you actually saw Cloud Atlas, he was in that as well.
6. The actor entered into a civil partnership with 30-year-old Australian composer Mark Bradeshaw last August.
7. Whishaw’s spokesperson said yesterday:
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. Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work.
8. So, who is the lucky man?
9. The couple met in 2009 on the set of Bright Stars.
12. Mark was only 25 when he wrote the score for the Jane Campion film.
Campion remarked, “We’re making this film about a young genius, so you’ve got to take a risk.” Mark more recently composed the score for Jane Campion’s six-hour BBC/Sundance mini-series Top of the Lake.
14. A very belated congrats to this happy couple.
