Quote of the Day: McKellen on "Rings" expedition

Dec 19, 2001 | 10:08am EST

Ian McKellen, who plays Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, on making the epic film, to BBC news:

"To be asked to join them on this expedition--akin to climbing Everest cinematically--I knew it would be something I'd regret if I didn't do it.

But it's not real hard work. If you see in this film Gandalf leaping onto a horse without a saddle or a bridle, it's not me. It's not this actor!"
