Jaye Davidson has worked in the entertainment industry as a model and actor. Near unemployed status is what brought Jaye into acting. His entry to the big screen was well received when he was nominated as the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for the Academy Award for the movie The Crying Game.
In this modern era, he is one of many people, who have openly and proudly come out of the closet. But, Jaye doesn't consider himself to be a gay man that the LGBTQ community would desire.
Married To Gay Partner!
The actor does not deny the fact that he is gay. In an interview with Seattle Times many years ago, he said that he had been in love only once in his life and thought he would never be in love again. Jaye, who portrayed the transgender role in The Crying Game, didn't have expected that he would find the love of his life, and someone would adore him too.
Fortunately, Jaye's gay partner, Thomas Clarke held his hand. The two shared the wedding vows with each other in July 2017. Meanwhile, his gay-bride was quick to give a glimpse of his romantic nuptial on social media, as he officiated his marriage through Instagram caption "Just married." The mingled couple celebrated their wedlock slicing a beautiful wedding cake. His family members, brother, and dad were also present as guests.

How Much Is Jaye's Net Worth?
The handsome and beautiful actor has summoned his net worth as an actor. The average salary of an actor is $50,058 per year.
He was offered $1 million for his remarkable movie The Crying Game. Before he came into the film, he served as a fashion assistant, whose average salary is $74,498 per annum.
His breakthrough movie was released in 1992 and was not a big hit during the initial release. As the film started to reach the audience outside the UK, the tickets were selling at an enormous rate.
Jaye’s role as Dil in the movie is to be a transgender who hides his identity as a man. Even his lover Fergus is unaware of his true identity. The thriller genre movie excellently captures the issues of gender, race, and sexuality.
The director Neil Jordan says no one other male actor could bring perfection in the role as a female like Jaye has done in the movie. He has seen his brilliant acting skills during the audition and captivated the director in his first attempt. Jaye, 50, is different from his transgender character, he is a gay man but not a transgender, but still, he does justice to the character.
