Gandalf speaks: Sir Ian McKellen talks about The Hobbit

On another note, a lovely anecdote that I read on two of my favourite wizards of all time and the actors playing them.

Sir Michael Gambon (the only other actor in theater who can stand with McKellen on equal terms with Sir Laurence Olivier) also plays a famous wizard, in Harry Potter. “I often get mistaken for Dumbledore,” McKellen mentioned amusingly. “One wizard is very much like another.”

When the two met backstage recently, McKellen asked Gambon if he was ever mistaken for Gandalf. “All the time!” he replied.

“That’s good,” said McKellen. “And what do you do?”

“Oh,” Gambon told him, “I just sign your name!”

😀 Don’t you just love them both? 🙂
