McKellen: Playing The Part

Constructed from 14 hours of interviews, McKellen: Playing the Part (now showing on Here TV) uncovers the remarkable story of actor Sir Ian McKellen.

From his upbringing living through the Second World War, working through repertory and West End theater becoming a pioneering stage star, coming out and being a leader in the campaign for equality, to his mainstream film breakouts as Magneto (X-Men Films) and Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy). His work and influence transcends generations, celebrated here in this fully-authorized insight.

McKellen: Playing the Part features unprecedented access to private photo albums, a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diaries written when he was 12, and exclusive behind the scenes of theater shows and films, alongside his personal thoughts on a life long lived.

Time Out Magazine calls this film “an intimate, enthralling look at the life of a legend.”
