Sir Ian McKellen keeps film props in his home

Feb 4 2013, 2:25am CST | by

Sir Ian McKellen keeps Gandalf's staff with his umbrellas.

The screen-and-stage icon has starred as the wizard in both 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy and on-going saga 'The Hobbit', and revealed the staff he used on screen is kept in an unexpectedly normal place.

Ian, 73, told the Mail On Sunday's live supplement: ''At the end of 'The Hobbit' I was given Gandalf's staff, which I keep with umbrellas and walking sticks, and Gandalf's hat, which I keep in the basement.''

The actor has kept souvenirs from a number of his projects, which he seems to prefer to awards ceremonies.

He explained: ''I don't like [them]. You have to be excited in case you're called up, so you gear yourself up to be ready to perform and make a speech, and then if you're not called up you feel stupid for having prepared yourself for something that hasn't happened.

''There was one occasion when they said, 'And the winner is ... ' and I stood up and it wasn't me - I just felt so embarrassed.''

Fresh off yesterday’s teaser trailer debut, Warner Bros. has released a few new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies images for director Peter Jackson’s final installment in his J.R.R. Tolkein saga.  This third Hobbit film will obviously cover the concluding events of the book, but will also likely cover much more ground from Tolkein’s appendices, as we glimpsed some truly epic footage of Lee Pace’s Thranduil doing battle and Ian McKellen’s Gandalf in a rather precious po ...
