Russell Tovey Is Officially Engaged to His Partner Steve Brockman
Openly gay actor Russell Tovey confirms engagement to boyfriend Steve Brockman after ‘completely unexpected’ proposal.
Steve is a former Kings Cross Steelers rugby player, a London based team who became the first ever gay inclusive rugby union club when they were founded in 1995.
It’s believed that Steve has changed professions to become a rugby coach. Aside from his work as a trainer, his work in the adult film industry has now reportedly unearthed since it was announced that he is set to wed Russell. He previously starred in adult movies, using the stage name Ryan Stack with film studio Randy Blue.
Tovey was ‘over the moon’ to be sharing his happy engagement news on social media this weekend.
A source previously told The Sun newspaper that the couple were ‘getting serious’ in July 2017 when a friend claimed: ‘Russell has never flaunted his romances but behind closed doors he is infatuated.’
The actor came out when he was 18 but didn’t begin to take on homosexual acting roles until he was aged 30 – a decision which he said ‘made his career’.
‘For so long, as a young actor, I had this anxiety about making sure I could get straight roles, and now I know that’s not necessary. The gay roles are the best for me. Being gay has made my career.’
Tovey is best known for his roles on Being Human and Him and Her, and recently returned for a third series as British intelligence operative-turned-CIA trainee Harry Doyle in ABC’s Quantico, despite having previously been written out of the series.
