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.''

The first image from The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies has been released and it features Sir Ian McKellen and Luke Evans looking at something. BUT WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING AT? IS IT A DRAGON? IS IT A MAN? IS IT A GIANT HOUSE? WHAT ABOUT A CAT? Whatever it is, it looks scary. Probably a cat then. Or a house. Or many cats. We haven't read the books, so it really could be anything.  Here's the image, and keep scrolling for a related video.   Watch Luke Evans playing Guess The ...
