Ian McKellen has married Patrick Stewart. No, not like that…
Instead The Hobbit actor has officiated at his close friend and X Men co-star’s wedding to jazz singer Sunny Ozell. Aw.
The pair tied the knot at a private ceremony over the weekend and McKellen served as a minister. The 74-year-old star, who is recognised by many as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, shared an image of himself on his official Facebook page yesterday with the words “I did my part.”
Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek, is a close friend of McKellen and the pair star together in the X Men films.
McKellen had revealed plans to officiate at his friend’s wedding earlier in the year on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying: “I am going to marry Patrick. Well, no, how else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding.”
Following the wedding, Patrick Stewart tweeted a picture of himself and his new wife in a ball pit (as you do):
Ellie is an entertainment, TV and film journalist writing news and (hopefully incredibly witty) comment for RadioTimes.com. She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
