|SIR IAN MCKELLEN
|(Sir Ian Murray McKellen)
|* 25. May 1939 (in Burnley, Lancashire, UK)
1999 as James Whale in 'Gods and Monsters'
2002 as Gandalf the Grey in 'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'
I like him most in the X-Men-movies and in 'The Da Vinci Code' (2006)
he was knighted in 1990
his mother Margery Lois McKellen died in 1951
his father Denis Murray McKellen died in a car crash in 1964, a week after seeing his son Ian in his West End debut
is best friends with fellow actor Sir Patrick Stewart...in fact Ian performed the marriage of Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell in 2013
in 2020, Patrick Stewart revealed that his marriage to Ozell in Nevada had not been legally binding because McKellen's marriage credentials were not valid in Nevada...subsequently, the couple held an impromptu and official second ceremony with McKellen at a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles shortly after the Nevada ceremony
he has an older sister, Jean (* 1934)
