Wade was still very young when he developed a passion for acting, and as his parents saw this, they enrolled him at an acting school where Wade began working on his performing skills. Although he was able to launch his acting career while still attending high school, Wade decided to first work on his education before devoting his life to acting – after he matriculated, he enrolled at the Edith Cowan University of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2010.
Career of an actor
Wade began working his way up in the film industry in 2010, as soon as he obtained his bachelor’s degree. He appeared in several short movies such as “Peachy Keen”, “Yardbird”, and “Epiphany”, and went on to appear in several movies and TV series in the next three years, but none of which are notable – it was 2013 when Wade became popular, thanks to his role of Geoffrey in the “Please Like Me” TV series which aired on the ABC2 channel.
This was Wade’s first main role and he held it until 2016 when the show ended after its fourth season – it is a humourous show which follows the life of Geoffrey, who is gay and is in love with his friend Josh who is gay as well. While the role made him popular, it also brought him some trouble, as many people believed him to be gay, resulting in a loss of fans. In 201, Wade began acting in the long-running “Home and Away” TV series which further increased the size of his fanbase – he was part of the main cast for six episodes through 2015.
Next year, Wade could have been seen in the “Spirit of the Game” TV movie, in which he played Don Hull – the movie follows Australia’s attempt to send their basketball team to the Olympic Games. Although he hasn’t had many roles in theatre plays, Wade was praised for playing a victim of rape in the “Ladies Play” play performed in 2016. Moving forward, Wade got the role of Sledgehammer in the “What if it Works” TV movie in 2017, while one of his most recent roles was in the “Reaching Distance” thriller movie shot in 2018.
Personal life – Is he gay?
Wade is more or less secretive when it comes to his love life – he has shared a couple of details about the women he has so far dated, but some people still believe him to be gay. The rumors about Wade being gay began circulating the internet soon after he started playing ‘the gay guy’ in the “Please Like Me” TV series – even though this was only a role and there is actual evidence that Wade is not gay, some people still believe the rumors. Wade was once in a serious and committed relationship, as he and the actress Anna Samson were dating for years.
The two first met at university and started going out soon afterwards – it was February 2016 when Wade asked Anna to marry him to which she said ‘yes’, however, the two got into a fight soon after that, and eventually broke-up and call the engagement off. Wade is currently in a relationship with Roxiena Fousi, and has a son with her named Wolfe Christopher Briggs who was bornmid-2019 – although the two are already parents, it doesn’t seem as though they have exchanged their wedding vows nor are planning to.
Interests and likes
Wade doesn’t have a lot of free time as his acting career is very demanding, however, he still manages to find gaps in his schedule for other things he enjoys doing.
Wade is very passionate about working out, and has five to six training sessions at the gym each week – his well-built body has won him a couple of modelling photoshoots, but he is rather focused on his acting career and doesn’t seem to be interested in making modelling his full-time job. He is a traveler and a big lover of nature – when he travels, he tries his best to make national parks and wildlife locations his destinations. His favorite season is summer, as he enjoys swimming and showing off his body – he also often plays beach sports with his friends. Both Wade and his girlfriend Roxiena are big lovers of animals, and are thinking about getting a young pet dog to grow up alongside their son.
Appearance and net worth
Wade is currently 27 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, and is 5ft 11in (1.8m) tall, while he hasn’t shared his exact weight with the public. According to authoritative sources, Wade’s current net worth is estimated to be more than $500,000 and is steadily rising thanks to his acting career.
Social media presence
Wade is more or less active on the internet – ‘more’ because he is using Instagram and Facebook, and ‘less’ because he doesn’t have a Twitter account (to the disappointment of his fans). He has more than 30,000 followers on his Instagram account, but has uploaded only 69 pictures onto it so far, and there are currently more than 4,100 people following Wade on his Facebook page.
