Jonathan Bailey Is Not Gay! Married to Girlfriend With a Family to Envy

Life of an actor can be very different from what they usually portray on the big screen. However, people often make an assumption about one based on their role on-screen. It can be very misleading.

The same was the case with the British actor Jonathan Bailey who was a part of the incredibly admirable gay-themed play, Certain Young Men. The actor's exceptional acting on the play convinced the audience that he is gay in real life, too.

But we are here to clear that out. Take a look!

Jonathan Bailey is Not Gay: More About His Family

There used to be a time where being gay was considered very inappropriate by the society. But now, in the 21st century, people are more open and accepting of the whole concept and the LGBTQ community. 

The actor Jonathan Bailey was a part of the most influential gay play Certain Young Men back in 1999. Because of his character on screen as gay, people assumed him to be one in real life. But that is so not true.

The 29-year-old actor is married to the 45-year-old TV anchor Sage Steel. But the details about how the couple started dating and how Sage became his girlfriend has not been disclosed. They are parents of three beautiful children. The couple got married in October 1999. Take a look at the family of five.

After his children were born, Jonathan even took a break from his acting career to be a stay-at-home dad. The family of five is exceptionally close to each other.

The aspiring actor paved his way into the entertainment industry even though his family did not come from that background. The actor also revealed that he would have considered becoming a pilot if it had not been for acting. He believes his three sisters to be the biggest influencers in his acting career.

I have three older sisters who definitely encouraged me to lark around. I’m pretty sure they spent their Sundays dressing me up (in suitably androgynous clothing) and forcing me to sing Sister Sledge. They were my heroes growing up!

Some of his applaudable works include Broadchurch (2013), W1A (2014), and Doctor Who (2005). When asked about his plans and roles he would like to take, Jonathan disclosed,

Tricky. I'm more definite about certain directors and theatres that I'd love to work for but I would be excited for a meaty classical text and a musical. I've recently been introduced to the Book of Mormon soundtrack and can't get enough. That'd be a sweet gig.

We are pretty sure the actor will reach a new height of success in the future given his acting skills and dedication.
