Sir Ian McKellen
Birth: May 25, 1939
I’ve posted about him: http://austenitis.blogspot.com/search/label/Ian%20McKellen
It’s his 73rd birthday!
You know him because – he is a fairly well-known actor, I believe. I’ve seen him in two movies: the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy as Gandalf, and The Scarlet Pimpernel that came out in the 80’s, as Chauvelin. He was a perfect Gandalf.
