Harry Potter star Alan Rickman has revealed he has married his high school sweetheart after 50 years together.
The 69-year-old actor and director has been in a relationship with Rima Horton, 68, since they met when he was 19 and she was 18. The couple have lived together in London for 50 years.
Asked what the secret of his successful relationship was, though they were not married, Alan told German newspaper Bild : "We are married, just recently. It was great because no one was there. After the wedding in New York, we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and ate lunch."
The A Little Chaos star apparently also revealed he gave his new wife a simple $200 (£130) gold band that "she never wears".
For years the UK has been at the cutting edge of the creative industries - and we want that to be the case for decades to come. This comes back to two things - and the two things that I see being as the most important in my job.
One: promoting our culture. Music, film and television help inspire young kids and bring our country together - so I will always back those industries. And two: our long-term economic plan.
Warner Bros is expanding its UK studios in north London where the Harry Potter films were made. Three sound stages will be built at the site at Leavesden two years after a #100 million redevelopment.
The studios are currently home to the new Tarzan film, starring Margot Robbie and Samuel L Jackson, which started production work there today.

Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, is supporting Eddie Izzard's bid to become London Mayor. The 51-year-old comedian is seeking the Labour nomination for Mayor of London in 2019.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Daniel Radcliffe said he was disillusioned by party politics:
"I'm not an affiliate of any party. I do vote - I think it's important. The first time I voted, I felt I had graduated as a full member of society. But politics is disillusioning; it's just bickering, it's exhausting.
"I think the next thing I'm going to get excited about is Eddie Izzard running for London mayor. He's really interesting, super-smart and brings a huge amount of integrity - something that we definitely don't have today."
Daniel Radcliffe looks set to play London 2012 boss Lord Coe in a film about his track battles with fellow athlete Steve Ovett three decades ago. The Harry Potter actor will star in 'Gold', which looks at the tense rivalry between the middle distance runners.
The competition between Ovett and Sebastian Coe is seen as one of the greatest sporting rivalries as they dominated middle distance running, setting world records and amassing medals.
The students got the chance to explore famous sets from the films - including Diagon Alley.
They also created photographs of themselves riding in the magical flying car from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets".
