Jun 2015 - Ian McKellen

25 June 2015 by Pure Radio

Mr Holmes is currently in the cinema, with Sir Ian McKellen playing the part of an ageing Sherlock Holmes.

Ian has said he’ll take on fewer acting roles in the future, in order to concentrate on writing his autobiography – after he signed a deal with publishers, worth a reported one million pounds.

Tonight, Under the Rainbow looks back at when he visited the Garrick Theatre in Stockport.

Ian explained why he thought more lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans celebrities don’t come out of the closet.
