Remember Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men? Well, Professor Charles Xavier, real name Sir Patrick Stewart is going to wed Jazz singer, Sunny Ozell.
Stewart, 72, and Ozell, 34, have been engaged for four years. Ozell grew up in Nevada and is based in New York.
Stewart has been married before. He first got married to his first wife, Sheila Falconer with whom he has two children: Daniel Stewart and Sophie Alexandra. The two divorced in 1990 and in 1997, he became engaged to Wendy Neuss, one of the producers of Star Trek: The Next Generation. They got married on 25 August 2000 and divorced three years later.
Ozell’s first date with Stewart consisted of her going to see him in Rupert Goold’s acclaimed production of Macbeth. “She told me afterwards that she was contemplating whether to come backstage or just melt away into the night,” Stewart talked about their first date. “But she’d also watched every episode of The Next Generation, and was brought up on Picard, so she knew that underneath there lurked a better man.”
