Product Description

Few actors achieve in their lifetime what Sir Ian McKellen has. A repertoire of vast commercial success coupled with critically acclaimed and authoritative Shakespearian roles.

A man whose achievements inspire both admiration and affection. McKellen has been feted and admired in every country across the globe, and has been knighted by, and received the Companionship of Honour from Queen Elizabeth II. He is an icon of, and ardent campaigner in the cause for LGBT rights.

Many of us know of McKellen through his depiction of Gandalf in Lord of the Rings. Garry O’Connor’s definitive biography reveals the man behind McKellen the actor. The inside story of the person himself: a constantly developing drama and a work in progress.

Yet O’Connor pulls no punches: some of his revelations may be controversial to his fans, even explosive, given McKellen’s constant ability to shock and surprise. The author directed McKellen in some of his very first roles.

This is an unflinching yet deeply intimate and affectionate biography that, like McKellen himself, will stand the test of time as a rounded and complete portrait of one of the most unusual geniuses of our times.
