Sir Ian McKellen is the real-life Benjamin Button. Perhaps not in a physical sense — the
74-year-old’s hair has greyed, his skin has wrinkled — but in every other sense the
English actor is younger, more vibrant, funnier and just generally more delightful than
he was at half his age.
All month long, my deputy editor Ingrid Randoja and I have been reading interviews
with, and watching video clips of, the man famous for playing J.R.R. Tolkien’s strong but
compassionate wizard Gandalf. Many of them were so funny we’d send links to each
other with notes like, “You have to watch this.”
My favourite is a clip from Ricky Gervais’ TV show Extras, which features a straight-faced McKellen
explaining his method to Gervais: “How do I act so well? What I do is I pretend to be the person I’m
portraying in the film or play.” He’s not really a wizard, he goes on to explain, but just pretended to be
one for The Lord of the Rings. I’ve watched it nine times and laughed out loud each time.
