My name is Pat and I live in Florida. My skin will never be smooth again and my hair will never see color. I enjoy collecting autographs and playing in Paint Shop Pro.,along with reading and writing. Sometimes, I enjoy myself by doing volunteer "work" helping celebrities at autograph shows. I love animals and at one time I did volunteer work for Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve.

Sir Ian

Sir Ian McKellen... our very own beloved Gandalf.

I love Gandalf. And I love Sir Ian for his magnificent performance as Gandalf..

(These are two fantastic pieces of art that I have seen at autograph shows)

Carl was nice enough to tell me about a blog he found. Would you believe it was kept by Ian during the time he was making Lord of the Rings? (found here!)

I've read it all, even though it's well after the movies were made. I do like reading what he had to say and if you think you would just use the link above.

Sir Ian: From Gandalf to King Lear...

.... and beyond!...........

He is someone I really wish I could see on stage. Who knows, sometimes miracles happen! But for now...

I * *Sir Ian McKellen!

Just to make you jealous me and my husband saw him on stage last year as King Lear and got his autograph afterwards. Some friends of ours alsp pursuaded him to have a small part in a film they made which me and Alex were extras in. We didn't get to work with him but can offically say we have been in a film with him!

That first piece of art is wonderful - as it Mr. McKellan himself. Seeing him on various chat shows he comes over as a thoroughly nice chap too. Nice post.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the link. I never get tired of going back and revisiting interviews, etc. for one of my favorite of all films, the LOTR trilogy. I too would love to see Ian on stage. That would be incredible.
