He is known as the boy who would not grow up, but it looks as if Peter Pan is finally getting married. During a stage production of Peter Pan in Glasgow, Scotland on Jan. 11, the actor playing Peter Pan proposed publicly to the actress playing Wendy Darling during the finale of a live performance.

“So, ladies and gentlemen, normally this show would continue with Peter Pan watching Wendy and giving her a kiss,” Sandor Sturbl, 28, said as the production came to a halt. “But this is not a normal show this evening. It’s not Peter Pan who is looking at Wendy.”

Sturbl went on to say that he had been dating his co-star, Jane Mary Sullivan, 22, whose stage name is Lilly-Jane Young. Sturbl said that the performance was taking place in her hometown and that her family was in attendance.
