Actor proposes to co-star on stage

Jasmine and Aladdin will have their happy ending, not only on stage, but in real life as well. Matthew Pomeroy, who plays Aladdin in the production at De Montfort Hall in Leicester in the UK, asked Natasha Lamb, who plays Jasmine, to be his wife during the curtain call.

“The last four years you’ve changed my life. You are the kindest, most caring person,” he said on stage. “Tash, I love you with all my heart. You’re my best friend and if you’ll let me… I want to share my life with you.”

Matthew, who is 30 years old, admitted that while he does not usually have stage fright, he was very nervous before this particular performance. He also made sure that both his and Natasha’s parents would be in the audience.

He told the BBC: “It was scary. I hadn’t worked out where to put the ring after my costume change for the finale as it didn’t have pockets – so when I bowed I thought it would fall out the belt.”

“I spend my life on stage – it’s my happy place. Proposing on there fits me perfectly,” he added.
