From: IGN Film Force

“Disappearer” sent us a copy of an interview he recently conducted with actor Ian McKellan (the wizard Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings). The interview has appeared in CompuServe’s UK Entertainment Forum but is new to the Internet.

Sir Ian: I am used to working away from home. Having just discovered e-mail though, I have kept in touch with friends and family much more than usual.
