Sir Ian McKellen Instructs Students With Gandalf Quote

Ian McKellen Gandalf

Ian McKellen has had a number of memorable roles throughout his illustrious career. Of course, the two roles that he is best known for among our readers are Magneto in the X-Men movies and Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.

On October 17, 2014, Sir Ian McKellen paid a little visit to Chew Valley School, where he addressed the students with an important message. While the students were gathered outside the library, McKellen asked, "In your preparation for your examinations if you don't do your revision properly, do you know what will happen?"


Playing perfectly into McKellen's plan, the students responded, "What?" Then in a loud, boisterous voice, Mckellen channeled Gandalf and said, "You shall not pass!"
