Peter Pan Actor Proposes to Wendy During a Stage Play
Have you adequately prepared your heart for a wave of feels? Here’s a video of an actor playing Peter Pan who pops the question to his girlfriend, who was playing Wendy Darling, during a performance onstage at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.
In what is possibly one of the most fitting endings to the story, Peter Pan proposed to Wendy during a performance of a stage play. There, surrounded by his fellow actors and in front of a wide audience, Dutch actor Sandor Sturbl stopped the show to say a few words to Lily-Jane Young, his co-star and real life girlfriend.
In that part of the play, Peter is supposed to look upon Wendy and give her a kiss. But Sturbl lets us know that this is not a normal show and what the audience is watching is really a 28-year-old Dutch man looking at the love of his life. Cue the flood of feels now.
As one might expect, the other actors and the whole audience erupt into a frenzy as they realize what Sturbl is about to do. And then there, in front of all their friends, family members and a full theater audience in the town in which she was born, Young sees Sturbl drop to his knees and offer her a ring. Through her sobs, Young says, “Yes!” and the happy couple embrace each other, drowned out by the cheering of the crowd around them. Ain’t love grand?
