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