Happy 80th Birthday Sir Ian McKellen!

You are probably already aware that I am a huge fan of Sir Ian McKellen and the legendary actor turns 80 years old today! With no signs of slowing down having been in the West End last year, still starring in films and currently on an epic UK tour to celebrate turning 80! I will be heading to see it in August when he comes to Newcastle!

There the natives are revolting, quite literally, as Boudicca (Kate Nash), Queen of the Iceni tribe, takes on the might of Rome.
