ABERDEEN’S Paul McCartney lookalike has fallen in love with a Linda McCartney-double. It was love at first sight for actor Gary Bakewell and American beauty Elizabeth Mitchell on the set of the made-for-TV movie, The Linda McCartney story.
“I wasn’t sure about working with this tall, blonde all-American girl, but when we met on the movie set, we clicked straight away,” says Gary, 32.
“She is absolutely lovely and charming,” admits the love-struck actor who once worked as an Evening Express paper boy.
“Elizabeth has a pretty tight filming schedule, but I intend bringing her to Aberdeen to meet the folks next month. We haven’t had time to think about wedding plans as yet, although we bought a flat in north London this week.” News of Gary and Elizabeth’s life-imitating-art romance has, until now, been a closely-guarded secret from everyone but their families and a few close friends.
