The Lord of the Rings is just mythology, it's a fairytale, it's an adventure. It never happened, except in our hearts. But then there was the Shire in 3 dimensions. And smoke coming out of the burrows where they lived….. And, I believed.

–McKellen on The Lord of the Rings

Sir Ian Murray McKellen (born May 25, 1939) is a highly acclaimed English actor on both stage and screen. His roles have spanned genres from serious Shakespearean and modern theatre to popular action movies. He is also well known as a campaigner for gay rights. For over a decade he has lived in a five-story Victorian conversion in Narrow Street, within London, the capital of England.

McKellen played the role of Gandalf in the three films that comprise the screen adaptation of Tolkien's novel trilogy The Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). For the first chapter, he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He reprised the role of Gandalf for the three-part film adaptation of The Hobbit, including The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and now the second-part of the film, The Desolation of Smaug.
