McKellen Gets Tramp Treatment in Oz???

By • West End
During a break in rehearsals for the Australian tour of Waiting for Godot, Sir Ian McKellen was mistaken for a real tramp. Writing on Twitter recently, the actor wrote: "During the dress rehearsal of Godot, I crouched by the stage door of the Comedy Theatre, getting some air, my bowler hat at my feet. Seeing an unkempt old man down on his luck, a passerby said, 'Need some help, brother?' and put $1 in my hat ... The dollar coin is now lodged between two drawing pins on the board above my dressing room mirror. My lucky talisman."
