Sir Ian McKellen has appeared in theatres around the country and on television and film screens since the 1960s. Now, with his parts in the first two X-Men films and the phenomenally successful The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he is known worldwide.

Also covering McKellen's advocacy of gay issues and his opinions against war, it gives a well-rounded view of one of Britain's greatest stage and screen actors.
