Ian McKellen Updates His Blog: “Three Bilbos Simultaneously”

Ian McKellen

“I’ve seen Bilbo — in three dimensions.” says Gandalf the Grey, played by Sir Ian McKellen.

He narrates an incident when he gets to visit Martin Freeman as he tests his “Bilbo Baggins” get-up before a green screen.

McKellen speaks of the two cameras that are being used to shoot The Hobbit.

“Three Bilbos simultaneously,” he says, “two performances on screen and the actor beyond: which was the real one?  Martin Freeman was transmuting into a character whose reality will soon be as authentic as his own.”
