Sir Ian McKellen

Sir Ian McKellen is to return to the role of Walter, which he played in the eponymously-titled Film Four production on Channel 4’s opening night more than 25 years ago, in a new play for BBC Radio 4. The new play, called Walter Now, will reveal what has happened to McKellen’s character, who has learning difficulties and is now a pensioner living in a hostel after many years in a psychiatric hospital. Writer David Cook, who wrote the original Walter and its 1983 sequel Walter and June, both directed by Stephen Frears, has also written the latest instalment for Radio 4. He began writing it as a screenplay before adapting it for radio. Sir Ian McKellen to revisit role of Walter for BBC Radio 4 play
