Calum Worthy’s Bio, Age
The actor was born on January 28, 1991, in Victoria, British Columbia, the son of Sandra Webster Worthy (mom) and David Worthy (dad). He attended Claremont Secondary School, where he stood out in his class as a brilliant student.
Before his exploits at school, Calum, like most children his age, saw the evergreen adventure/comedy film Home Alone starring Macaulay Culkin. He had a deep fondness for the main character of the film and then began to nurture the ambition to become an actor. Many years passed and this childhood dream has become a reality today.
Calum Worthy began to dedicate more time to training as a dancer, singer, and actor, at a time when he had to drop out of his studies to concentrate fully on being the best at what he does. True to his determination, the boy landed his first television role in Mysterious Ways when he was just 9 years old. In the same year (2001) he took on another role as Roger/Ratty in I Was a Rat and starred in three episodes of the series. His impressive portrayal of his character and the overall success of the series opened up further opportunities for the Canadian actor.
Calum subsequently starred in other series such as National Lampoon’s Thanksgiving Family Reunion (2003), Good Luck Charlie (2011), and Wisdom of the Crowd (2017). For movies, he has recorded appearances in The Last Mimzy (2007), Rapture-Palooza (2013), Bodied (2017), and many others.
Calum Worthy has certainly experienced good times in his young and aspiring career. The actor has undoubtedly been well rewarded for his work to date, but few sources have reported on his wealth. According to reports, he is worth about 1 million dollars.
Family – Is He Gay Or Has A Girlfriend?
One of the things that actors and actresses have to contend with in their private lives is the influence that the characters they give life to on the set have on their private lives and the interpretations that their fans give to the problems they encounter. There have been numerous cases where couples have been paired on the screen in real life, but unfortunately, it turned out that this was not the case. There have also been cases where actors and actresses have been called gay or not gay in real life, depending on how well they played a character. Calum Worthy falls into the latter category.
The star of Austin & Ally is said to have been gay around 2015 because of his role and the perfect portrayal of the character Dez in Austin & Ally; Dez had a strange personality and a strange sense of fashion. Moreover, Worthy was also unaware that he had a girlfriend in real life or at best kept his dating life a closely guarded secret.
When his fans could not draw any concrete conclusions from all this, they quickly assumed that the actor was probably gay and was afraid to come out because of his parents.
However, the rumor went around that Calum Worthy had already been in a relationship with Raini Rodriguez before this time in 2012. The pictures of the two were circulating in the social media at the time. But due to the fact that Raini was his co-star at Austin & Ally and that neither of them commented on their presumed relationship, this rumor of a natural death died, as it was not very valid.
It seems that Calum does not have a family of his own, he is not married, nor do we know that he has a boyfriend or girlfriend.
