Lloyd Webber and Sarah Brightman. Yesterday well-known English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, Baron Lloyd-Webber had birthday, he is 64 now. I found some curious facts from his biography. For example the fact that he married Sarah Brightman 28 years ago, right on his birthday – 22 March 1984. He cast Brightman in the lead role for his musical The Phantom of the Opera. The couple existed for 6 years, but they didn’t have children, and finally divorced on 3 January 1990. One more fact – Sarah’s ex husbands’ names were Andrew. And Andrew’s first and second wives’ names were Sarah.
