This is the reply and the question from ian Mckellen.

Hello, Sir McKellen (or is it McKellen the Grey)?

Anyway, I’m a big fan of the Lord of the Rings( not big in stature, just enthusiasm!) and was just wondering:

Will the Gandalf character you portray in the film be YOUR Gandalf or one perceived by another person, e.g Peter Jackson?

Thanks for your time,

Scott I,

dear scott i

u ask a simple question that is not easily answered. let’s say for now that tolkein and jackson will be my guides

best wishes ian mckellen
