Sir Patrick Stewart was joined by his close friend Sir Ian McKellen at the premiere of his new series Star Trek: Picard.

The legendary actors, known for having a bromance, greeted each other with a kiss as they arrived at the screening at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square in London.

The men are known to be good friends and Sir Ian officiated when Sir Patrick married his wife, jazz singer Sunny Ozell, in 2013.
