More Answers From Gandalf - Ian McKellen's E-Post

Ian McKellen...
Just got a message from Keith over at the Official Ian McKellen web site that the man with Gandalf's cinematic face has answered some more questions from the fans. Here are some of the questions asked:

Q: I am certain you will play an excellent wizard, but do you think you, or anybody, can play one of the most complex roles in the greatest novel of the 20th century?

Q: Is the scene on the top of Orthanc where the eagle picks Gandalf off the roof to be included in the film? If so does it hurt to be picked up by a (very large I guess!!) eagle?

Q: About how many multiple units are filming on any given day?

Q: Have you seen parts of LOTR with all the computer magic in? If so, how believable would you say it is?

Q: I was pondering over just how Tolkien "virgins" will be updated during The Lord of The Rings, on events that took place during The Hobbit (e.g. just how Bilbo acquired the ring, the Battle of the Five Armies, and of course, his treasure).

Q: Just out of curiosity, what is the one question you are tired of being asked?

So, head on over and check out the answers!
