Sir Ian McKellan is considered one of the greatest British actors of all time who in the 1980s was known for his work on the stage. He rose to fame for his work in films like Richard III and Gods and Monsters but is perhaps best known for his most recent work in the popular X-Men and Lord of the Rings film series.
