Playing the Part (2018)

Directed by Joe Stephenson

Built around a 14 hour interview, Playing the Part uncovers McKellen's story. From his upbringing living through the war, working through repertory and West End theatre becoming a pioneering stage star, coming out and being a leader in the campaign for equality, to his mainstream film breakouts as Magneto and Gandalf. His work and influence transcends generations, celebrated here in this fully authorised insight.

McKellen: Playing the Part features unprecedented access to private photo albums, a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diaries written when he was 12, and unseen behind the scenes of theatre shows and films, alongside his personal thoughts on a life long lived.

The film also features dramatic recreations starring Frances Barber, Adam Brown, Scott Chambers, Luke Evans, David Foxxe, Sean Mathias, Milo Parker, Edward Petherbridge and Martin Sherman.
