Nathan Lane’s recurring character on Modern Family was a key part of the wedding of Cam and Mitchell, but the actor hilmsef has waited a little longer for his own nuptials. Now though, People reports that Lane married his partner of 18 years, Devlin Elliott, at City Hall in New York last Tuesday.
Lane came out publicly in 1999, something that suprised very few people, and it certainly had little effect on his career. As an actor he’s a double Tony winner (for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and The Producers), and has had success on screen in everything from The Birdcage and Mousehunt to The Good Wife and voicing Timon in The Lion King.
Lane has previously spoken about the fact that if he ever did marry it would be a quiet affair, something he’s followed through with a City Hall wedding and a wait of several days for it to be officially announced.
