Meet Josh Silver, Actor David Dawson’s Partner
Even before romancing Harry Styles in the film My Policeman, David Dawson has been open about being gay. He never shied away from admitting that he is proud to be part of the LGBTQ community.
As for Josh Silver being his partner, he has not confirmed this piece of information himself. But, he did care to tell in a recent interview with Vogue, when discussing the film My Policeman, that he is not only engaged but is also getting married the next year.
Talking about his character Patrick Hazlewood, Josh said that he came away from portraying this role, as a gay man himself, with a greater feeling of acknowledging the privilege that he has, the freedoms and rights that he has. He thus implied that his decision to get married in 2023 was also affected by this journey with My Policeman.
Still, until now, David had not disclosed the identity of his fiance.
It was the ‘David Dawson Central’ fan page on Twitter that revealed to the world on 13 October 2022 that David and his fiance got engaged just before COVID struck. This Tweet also explained how David now sports a large, black onyx engagement ring next to the silver McQueen snake ring his family bought him for his 40th birthday. Moreover, the tweet also informed that the couple, plus Dodger, the French bulldog were in the process of moving from North London to Manchester to gain a garden and be closer to their families.
Besides, by the look at David’s own and his alleged partner’s social media, one can tell that they are the ones engaged to one another. They can be spotted on Instagram, wishing each other lovely birthday messages and showing immense support to one another. For instance, just in October 2022, Josh gushed about how proud he is of David for doing such an important story (My Policeman).
From the glance at these Instagramming they do, one can also tell they have been dating since at least 2014.
So, by now, David’s fans are already so very obsessed with his and Josh’s romance.
