Ian McKellen marries Patrick Stewart (not like that)
SIR Ian McKellen took on a very different role over the weekend — as a wedding officiator to his best friend and X-Men co-star Patrick Stewart.
The former Bolton School pupil, best known for playing Gandalf the Wizard in Lord Of The Rings, uploaded to his Facebook page a photo of himself holding a black T-shirt saying ‘Minister’ and a Doctor of Divinity certificate to his official Facebook page.
Earlier this year, the 74-year-old revealed to Jonathan Ross: “I am going to marry Patrick. Well, no, how else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding.”
When asked if he was qualified to do so, he replied: “I don’t know. But in Massachusetts, or in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married.”
Star Trek legend Sir Patrick, aged 73, also took to social media to make the announcement that he’d tied the knot with jazz singer Sunny Ozell, aged 35, with a simple tweet saying “Yes, married”, followed by a photo of the pair in a child’s ball pond.
