No writer could ever describe him. As a writer, for me I strongly believe that he is now one of the pillars in nurturing, emphasizing and placing homosexuals to be of great importance in our time. He strongly emphasized that he’s not encouraging people to turn homosexuals, he wants us to understand and see how important their role in the evolution of society. This led him to accept and be his favorite role “Magneto” in the “X-Men” series and “The Da Vinci Code” with Tom Hanks. If you still remember the common prose and he modified it as “a man who came out of cupboard.” He is the most open and known “gay-actor.” He is more than an actor, a “Knight” and social activist.

Born as Sir Ian Murray McKellen CH, CBE from Burnley, Lancashire – England. You might want to ask his titles “CH” and “CBE.” That stands for “ Champion” in his contributions to film industry and equality “Commander” of the “Order of the British Empire” as he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

He won “Best Actor” for the movie “Gods and Monsters” and “Best Cast” for “The Return of the King.” He won “Best Supporting Actor” for the mini-series “Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny.” He turned down the offer to be Albus Dumbledore after Richard Harris died. He turned it down not because he’s angry with Harris, but he doesn’t want to be unfair and doesn’t want to take part of Richard Harris. He received the Saturn Award “Best Supporting Actor” for Apt Pupil and The Fellowship of the Ring and Outstanding Actor for Supporting Role 2001 and Outstanding Cast in 2003 for the Return of The King.
