Who is Wade Briggs? Wiki Biography

Wade Briggs was born in Sydney, New South Wales in Australia, on 5 May 1992, so under the zodiac sign of Taurus and holding Australian nationality – he is popular for his success in the film industry, mostly for his appearance in the “Please Like Me” TV series which he was part of from 2013 to 2016.

Childhood and education

Wade spent his entire childhood in Australia, raised by his parents, but as they don’t want to be involved in media, Wade hasn’t shared any details regarding their lives with the public – he hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, which is why his fans believe that he’s an only child.

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 in 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 2014, 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.

More recently, he appeared in the film “Dampyr” and three episodes of “His Dark Materials” TV series, both in 2022, and in 2023 six episodes of “Foundation” and an episode of “Death in Paradise”.

Personal life – Is he gay?

Wade is more or less secretive when it comes to his love life – he’s shared a couple of details about the women he has so far dated, but some people still believe him to be gay, after playing ‘the gay guy’ in the “Please Like Me” TV series –  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 born mid-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 photo-shoots, but he’s rather focused on his acting career and doesn’t seem to be interested in making modelling his full-time job.

He’s 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 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’s using Instagram and Facebook, and ‘less’ because he doesn’t have a Twitter account (to the disappointment of his fans), but there are currently more than 5,000 people following Wade on his Facebook page.
