Campbell Scott will be walking down the aisle this summer, he tells PEOPLE. Scott got engaged to stage actress Kathleen McElfresh in November.

"We've been dating almost two years," he revealed at the premiere of his latest film, Handsome Harry, at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend.

The happy couple met while working at a theater in Boston. "I was in a one-man play, so I was very lonely," he said on the red carpet, holding hands with McElfresh. "Kathleen was in a play by the same author, but with a real cast. I just ended up with the cast one night, so we started talking."

But McElfresh remembers it a bit differently. "I saw him and I had a crush on him. He's not going to tell you that, but I saw him and I was like, 'I have a crush on him. I'm going to talk to him.' And then I did," she told PEOPLE.

"And she did, thank God," Scott, 47, said smiling.

The pair plan to wed in a small ceremony in Florida in June.

This will be the second marriage for Scott, who has one son, Malcolm, from his first marriage.
