  • Widely considered one of the leading British actors of his generation, Ian McKellen has had a rich and varied career encompassing the stage, screen, and television. A renowned stage actor in his native Britain for decades, McKellen was not familiar to most American audiences until the '90s, when he began popping up in a number of well-received films. One of these, Gods and Monsters, elevated the actor into the international spotlight when he earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Frankenstein director James Whale.Born May 25, 1939, in the northern English mill town of Burnley, McKellen was the son of a civil engineer. Encouraged by his parents, he developed an early fascination with the theatre. This interest continued when his family moved to the mining town of Wigan, where McKellen began acting in school plays. At the age of 13, he performed in his first Shakespeare play, as Malvolio in a production of Twelfth Night. He gained an additional appreciation for Shakespeare during his summer vacations, when he attended camp in Stratford-upon-Avon and spent the evenings watching the likes of Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, John Gielgud, and Paul Robeson give life to the playwright's work.Shakespeare played a continuing role in McKellen's life when he went to Cambridge University, where he was offered a place to study English at Saint Catherine's College. This offer was withdrawn two years later, when McKellen's involvement in theatre almost completely eclipsed his studies. His work in student theatre proved invaluable, however, allowing him to work with Derek Jacobi, David Frost, and Trevor Nunn, with whom he would go on to form a lasting professional relationship. McKellen's acting pursuits were also important for another reason: as he would later explain to numerous interviewers, the theatre introduced him to other gay men, something that eased his acceptance of his own homosexuality. McKellen's identity as a gay man would prove almost as defining a characteristic of his public persona as his identity as an actor: a vocal activist, he became one of a handful of openly gay knights when he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1991.After leaving Cambridge in 1961, McKellen began his professional career at Coventry's Belgrave Theatre, where he acted in a production of A Man for All Seasons. Three years later, he was living in London and working steadily on the stage. He acted in countless productions, a number of which he also directed, and co-founded the progressive Actors' Company in 1972. He earned a score of awards and honors for his work and in 1979 was made a Commander of the British Empire. Two years later, he won international theatrical acclaim with his Tony Award-winning portrayal of Salieri in the Broadway production of Amadeus.McKellen made his film debut in 1969 with a small role in The Promise, the same year that he caused a sensation on the stage with his portrayal of Edward II, which required him to kiss another man. It was not until 20 years later that McKellen became recognizable to international film audiences with his starring role as John Profumo in Michael Caton-Jones's Scandal (1989). Somewhat ironically, a year before gaining fame for playing one of the most infamously heterosexual public figures of the 20th century, McKellen came out to the public as a gay man during a BBC radio program. In 1993, he became recognizable to American television audiences playing gay men in And the Band Played On and Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City, two acclaimed TV miniseries; McKellen earned an Emmy nomination for his work in the former. In 1996, he earned another Emmy nomination for his supporting role in Rasputin.That same year, the actor gained more visibility on the big screen, appearing in Six Degrees of Separation and The Ballad of Little Jo. He continued to turn in strong performances in such films as Cold Comfort Form (1995) and Jack and Sarah (1995), and he earned particular acclaim for his titular perform

I can see it's a girl, you fool!
Lumiere
What if she is the one?
Charles Xavier/Professor X
She left becuase you got inside her head.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
That's not my power.
Peregrin `Pippin' Took
I didn't think it would end this way
Gandalf
End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it
Peregrin `Pippin' Took
What Gandalf? See what?
Gandalf
White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise
Peregrin `Pippin' Took
Well, that isn't so bad
Gandalf
No. No, it isn't
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
You built these weapons to destroy us. Why?
Sherlock Holmes
When you are a detective and a man visits you it's usually about his wife.
Sherlock Holmes
I told Watson if I ever write a store it will be to correct the million misconceptions created by his imagination.
Gandalf
This was the last move in amass up there, a plan, long in the making.
Gandalf
This was the last move in a master plan, a plan, long in the making.
Gandalf
That is Dain Ironfoot, Thorin's cousin. I've always felt Thorin was the more reasonable of the two...
Gandalf
We have only one question answer: How shall this day end?
Gandalf
A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
The Toad
It's obvious I never should have sent rodents to do an amphibian's job.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
So much for being a survivor...
Quicksilver
They told me you control metal.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
They?
Quicksilver
You know, my mom knew someone who could do that.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
Angel. Azazel. Emma. Banshee. Mutant brothers and sisters - all dead! Countless others have been experimented on, butchered! Where were you, Charles?! We were supposed to protect them! Where were you when your own people needed you?! Hiding?! You and Hank - pretending to be something you're not! You abandoned us all!
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
Where were you when they needed you, Charles?
Magneto
You know this plastic prison of theirs won't hold me forever. The war is still coming Charles and I intend to fight it. By any means necessary.
Prof. Charles Xavier
And I will always be there...old friend.
Gandalf
You've been sitting quietly for far too long. Tell me. When did doilies and your mother's dishes become so important to you? I remember a young hobbit who was always running off in search of Elves in the woods. He'd stay out late, come home after dark, trailing mud and twigs and fireflies. A young hobbit who would've liked nothing better than to find out what was beyond the borders of the Shire. The world is not in your books and maps. It's out there.
Charles Xavier/Professor X
You took the things that mean that most to me.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
Maybe you should've fought harder for them!
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
We were supposed to protect them!
James Whale
Making movies is the most wonderful thing in the world.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
We were supposed to protect them!
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
It's going to take the two of us, side by side at a time when we couldn't be further apart.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
All those years wasted fighting each other Charles...
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
We've been given a second chance.
Charles Xavier/Professor X
You took the things that mean the most to me.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
Maybe you should have fought harder for them.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
We were supposed to protect them!
Gandalf
Where is your master? Where is he?!
Gandalf
Where is your master? Where is he?
Gandalf
True courage is knowing not how to take a life, but when to spare it.
Gandalf
I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay.
Gandalf
Sauron!
Gandalf
Radagast, our magic may not defeat Sauron, but it can give us time.
Denethor
Abandon your posts! Flee, flee for your lives!
Gandalf
(whacks Denethor) Prepare for battle!
Gandalf
Prepare for battle!
Frodo Baggins
I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf
So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us
Gandalf

Erik Lensherr/Magneto
You'll need me as well. Side-by-side to end this war before it ever begins.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
It's going to take the two of us.
Logan/Wolverine
And where do I find you?
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
On a different path, a darker path.
Gandalf
These are gundabad wargs. They will outrun you!
Gandalf
It is undoubtedly a trap.
Bilbo Baggins
Good morning.
Gandalf
What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning or do you mean that it is a good morning wheter I want it or not? Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel good on this particular morning? Or are you simply stating that this is a morning to be a good on? Hm?
Bilbo Baggins
All of them at once, I suppose.
Magneto
lets point those claws of yours into a safer direction
Magneto
Let's point those claws of yours into a safer direction.
Gandalf
Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? I don't know. Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.
Gandalf
All good stories deserve embellishment!
Gandalf
True courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one.
Bilbo Baggins
No, thank you! We don't want any more visitors, well-wishers or distant relations!
Bilbo Baggins
No, thank you! We don't want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!
Gandalf
And what about very old friends?
Bilbo Baggins
Gandalf?
Gandalf
Bilbo Baggins.
Bilbo Baggins
My dear Gandalf!
Gandalf
Good to see you, 111 years old! Who would believe it? You haven't aged a day.
Bilbo Baggins
And you promise that I will come back?
Gandalf
No...and if you do, you will not be the same.
Bilbo Baggins
Thats what I thought...
Bilbo Baggins
Good Morning.
Gandalf
What do you mean? Do you mean to wish me a good morning or are you saying it is a good morning whether I want it or not? Or perhaps you are saying that you feel good on this particular morning. Or maybe you are suggesting that it is a morning to be good on.
Gandalf
Those are Gundabad Wargs. They will catch and eat you!
Radagast
These are Rhosgobel rabbits. I'd like to see them try!
Gandalf
True courage is not about knowing when to take a life, but when to spare one.
Galadriel
Mithrandir... Why the hafling?

Where did you go, if I may ask?
Gandalf
To look ahead.
Thorin
and what brought you back?
Gandalf
Looking behind.
Galadriel
Why the Hafling?
Gandalf

Gandalf
Fly you fools!
Gandalf
It's the little things that are important! Love or an act of kindness that are the things that keep darkness at bay.
Gandalf
Your Old Took's great-granduncle Bullroarer was so huge (for a hobbit) that he could ride a horse. He charged the ranks of the goblins of Mount Gram in the Battle of the Green Fields, and knocked their king Golfibul's head clean off so that it sailed a hundred yards through the air and went down a rabbit-hole, and the battle was won-- and the game of Golf was invented at the same time.
