Enter our exclusive and wonderful competition!
Win a pair of tickets to London's BFI Southbank to see McKellen: Playing the Part followed by a live Q&A with Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi and others and hosted by Graham Norton.
Join us on Sunday 27 May for McKellen: Playing the Part, hosted by Graham Norton and broadcast live to cinemas nationwide from London's BFI Southbank. In Playing the Part, audiences will have the opportunity to celebrate one of Britain's true acting icons on his birthday weekend.
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 competition closes at midday on Wednesday 23 May 2018. We'll be in touch the same day if you're a winner.
