A-HA frontman MORTEN HARKET smiles when fans point out his resemblance to Patrick Swayze - because it was the actor himself who first noticed their similarity.
The Take On Me hitmaker admits he was upset after hearing Swayze had passed away earlier this month (Sep09) because he was a big fan of the Dirty Dancing star - who couldn't believe how much the two stars looked alike.
Harket recalls, "I met him once and I was really sad when he died because Michael Jackson passed away and that's been such an uproar, but you haven't seen any of that with Patrick Swayze. I really like him as an actor and I was lucky to meet him once and he was such a nice guy.
"He came up to me and he introduced himself and said, 'You know, we could be brothers!' He was actually the first one to think that he and I looked alike."
Swayze died age 57 after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
