Sir Ian McKellen is one of Britain’s leading actors, having made a memorable contribution on the stage, in film, television and radio. He has been nominated for an Oscar and gained star status in the cinema as Gandalf the Grey in Lord of the Rings, but his success has been built on a classical base. Richard III (on stage and screen) was just one of many Shakespeare roles, and Uncle Vanya, one of a number of Chekhov plays. On television, he has appeared in works as different as The Scarlet Pimpernel, Hedda Gabler, Othello, and Ian McKellen’s Diary (two documentaries about his life and work). Throughout his career, he has taken time to work on radio/audio drama—though this is his first performance as Prospero.
