Sir Ian McKellen

I love movies but I’m not knowledgeable about individual actors. There are some actors I like more than others, including Angelina Jolie and Monica Belluci, but even with these people I don’t particularly care to know about them. Even when it comes to their work. I mean, if they’re in a new movie, I look forward to catch it, but I don’t follow their career or anything.

Ian is another actor whose talent I enjoy immensely. I discovered him very late, as the wizard Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And in the X-men trilogy, where he confirmed my suspicion that he’s devastatingly sexy. His charisma just hits the roof.

I’ve been doing some reading about him lately. First stop is Wikipedia, and from there I found his website. And, the real gem that I am relishing and quickly getting hooked on, his writings including his blogs. I love love love getting this peek into his personal thoughts. They span across decades, covering various subjects. I don’t know why, I just find them so fascinating. I’m such a nosy person sometimes.
