Ben Whishaw
Ben Whishaw (born 1980) is an actor. He was born and brought up in Clifton, Bedfordshire.

He played Sebastian Flyte in the 2008 film of Brideshead Revisited and Q in the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall.

In August 2013 he had a representative confirm that he had entered into a civil partnership with his Australian composer partner Mark Bradshaw in 2012. In 2011, he had said in an interview with Out Magazine:

"As an actor you have total rights to privacy and mystery, whatever your sexuality, whatever you do. I don't see why that has to be something you discuss openly because you do something in the public eye. I have no understanding of why we turn actors into celebrities."[1]
