Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Sir Ian Murray McKellen (born in 1939 in the UK) is a Shakespearean actor, known for his roles as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Magneto in X-Men (get over it) and as Number Two in the remake of The Prisoner, as well as a certain polar bear.

He's also openly gay and an ardent supporter of gay rights (averting Nobody Over 50 Is Gay), advocating it to the exclusion of other causes. Indeed, when the Conservative and pro-Section 28 then-Home Secretary Michael Howard asked for an autograph from McKellen in 1988, McKellen instead wrote, "F**k off, I'm gay".
