#FBF 22 July 2000; The longest limo ride from Los Angeles to San Diego for #COMICCON ... Almost 5 hours in traffic. Luckily my friend Jeff Burkhart kept me entertained. We arrived about a minute before I was scheduled to be on stage.


To everyone in New York - the director of McKellen: Playing the Part and my good friend, @joestephenson, will be doing an introduction before the film at @thelandmark57w on 19 June. He will also be doing a Q&A after the screening at @symphonyspace.
I'm sure you will be treated to unique insights into what went into making the film and the art of filmmaking in general.
Tickets are available here: https://www.symphonyspace.org/event/10138/Film/mckellen-playing-the-part


#FBF 18 April 2000, near Paekakariki, New Zealand. On my way to train with Shadowfax, I learn a few lines for The Lord of the Rings. https://t.co/ibfFVYrjeE


#TBT 10 April 2000, on a direct line to Yahoo! HQ (remember when phones had cords?). They were taking questions online, which I answered on the phone, to be typed in by somebody else at Yahoo! My first Internet "chat" though by that time my website was already 3 years old!

Enjoy a visit from my old friend @iain during a break in filming The Good Liar.


Today marks the start of Pride Month. It has always been and remains important to celebrate the influence of the LGBTQ+ community as well as raise awareness about our rights. In McKellen: Playing the Part, I look back on my involvement in @stonewalluk & campaigning against anti-gay laws in the UK.

The wonderful David Sedaris has a new book out, "Calypso." The cover reminds me of a photo I published on my website in 2003, depicting Gandalf in the wood paneling of my dressing room. What have you seen in a slice of a tree? http://www.mckellen.com/cinema/lotr/scrapbook/index.htm
