A comic by trade, British sensation Tom Bosden rose to prominence as a writer/actor via BBC Roman comedy Plebs. He is also known for penning Channel 4 comedic show called Fresh Meat.

Among the larger worldwide audience though, the talented comedian gets best recognized as Matt from the notoriously comical series "After Life." Aired in 2019, the Netflix special features fellow British comic Ricky Gervais as its lead.

Also in 2019, the fans further got to witness Tom's multi-faceted talents when he starred alongside actor Daniel Craig in the BBC Two show called Isle Of Dreams.

Dating/Married Talks - Wife Or Girlfriend?

As a top British prospect in an international stage, one would expect there to be a line of women willing to be his wife. Or at the very least, on the prowl to become a girlfriend.

What gives the female admirers hope is a simple fact that Tom never honestly advertises his married life - of course, assuming that he even has a wife/partner. Be it on public or online, he keeps his dating life with mystery girlfriends under wraps and away from the prying eyes.

Gay Man With Partner?

As it does, the absence of a life partner in Tom's life gave somewhat credence to the rumors of him being a gay man. Over time, the suggestions about his sexuality only persisted as he refrained from tackling the subject head-on.

Perhaps, the Plebs actor wants to pan to the LGBTQ demographic by letting the gossips fly. Either that or he is indeed a gay man with a mystery partner but doesn't want to flaunt it on public platforms.

Bio - Age & Family

Tom's reclusive nature extends beyond his romantic affiliations and onto family life as well. Details about his biological parents have gained a mythic status at this point.

Tom was born in the year 1980 in England, United Kingdom. Since information on his upbringing are scarce, the 39-year-old probably picked up a passion for everything comic at an early age.

Pursuing his artistic aspiration, he graduated from Cambridge's prestigious am-dram group called Footlights. Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, and Rowan Atkinson are some notable Footlights Alums.

Career + Net Worth

Together with Footlights members Tim Key, Stefan Golaszewski & Lloyd Woolf, Tom formed a comedy group called Cowards. The quartet did two BBC Radio 4 series as well as a BBC Three TV show.

The Wrong Mans actor's career, however, didn't take off until in 2007 when he got honored with Edinburgh Comedy Award for best newcomer. In the years since the recognition, he has starred, written and produced countless TV shows, films and staged theatrical productions.

Insiders argue that Tom boasts a seven-figure sum in net worth through his endeavors.
