A Few Words from Ian

August 18, 1999 at 2:17 pm by xoanon  - 

Meena, chatroom regular, sent these letters from Ian McKellen. They were sent to a friend of hers. Those who have doubts that those are actual responses from Ian, have no fear, that’s really him.

dear gina rho

belated thanks for yr sweet message.

u can tell yr sister that i shall be gandalf after all

best wishes

ian mckellen


a brief boring reply to yr questions. i don’t seem to have a favorite movie– too many anyway. No i haven’t missed playing a part i really wanted and i have never had ambitions about particular parts being more concerned with other things like the director, the rest of the cast, the schedule, etc.

best wishes

ian mckellen

Great to hear he’s got a rapport with the fans! Keep sending me things like this, good to hear
