Media Watch: McKellen on Backch@t

June 7, 2000 at 12:51 am by Tehanu  - 

A treat for all you NZ Ringers: Sir Ian McKellen was interviewed for last Sunday’s Backch@t with Bill Ralston, and it’s being repeated at 11pm on Thursday, on TV1.
According to our correspondent, the interview with Sir Ian was recorded at the opening of the OutTakes Film Festival in Wellington. It included a brief chat after his speech about all the New Zealanders involved in the production – a good thing in his opinion. He also discussed the state of television in New Zealand, decrying a lack of quality. In the snippits of his opening speech he talked about the makeup process for Gandalf taking several hours and requiring early starts and late evenings, and joked about his movements between makeup and filming.
Thanks to Jake for that.
