DEV ID LOTR Premiere by SlayerSyrena DEV ID LOTR Premiere by SlayerSyrena
New Dev ID. Old photo (sorry for the dust specks. This isn't a digital photo). This is when I met Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf) at the Return of the King after party (on the night I went to the Red Carpet premiere of The Return of the King).

I also met many other LOTR actors that night including, Sean Astin, Andy Serkis, Dominic Monaghan and etc ... Viggo Mortensen waited next to us for the limos and Orlando Bloom was surrounded by men in black (bodyguards). The chef, Wolfgang Puck, was in charge of the catering and Dominic Monaghan took over as the DJ (he likes really loud electronic music. Maybe it was trance. I'm not really sure). Anyways, it was a really fun night.

Note: Ian told me that the tie he was wearing was a 'mithril' tie the WETA workshop had made for him.

If he is SIR Ian McKellen, might I assume he was legally 'knighted'?

SlayerSyrena Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
Indeed. He was knighted in 1991.

wow, pretty amazing syrena!

though I wouldnt be too thrilled to meet ian Mckellen, he has a real hate for bibles if I remember correctly

Yes, I know, but so do most non-Christians. I have many friends who are not Christians. All you can do
is talk to them (without arrogance) or pray for them (for their salvation most of all), but you are certainly not to hate them or think you are above them somehow (all Christians were lost once).

I firmly believe that God loves Ian just as much as the rest of us. After all, the verse in my tag line begins, 'For God so loved the WORLD'. :nod: Jesus himself said he did not come to save the righteous. This does not mean that God is not angry with sin; the Bible makes it very clear that he is. However, he was not so angry as to not make the greatest sacrifice for EVERY sinner. His own son, Jesus.

Now, the choice of salvation is up to the sinner; they can either refuse to believe they are a sinner and reject God's free gift or believe that they are indeed a sinner in great need of salvation, and accept it, knowing that only Christ can save them. That was your choice, it was my choice, and if Ian decides to someday, it can be his as well.

But, of course, you know all this already. :)

Anyways, I have great respect for Sir Ian McKellen as an actor and he was so very friendly in person! I was so thrilled to meet him.

sorry if I offended, its just the fact that word has been getting around of his favorite thing to do when he gets a hotel room, which is where he rips the page out from leviticus (the one about gays) and throws it away.

one way any person can get under my skin, is when they destroy a bible like that, and just because they disagree with it

SlayerSyrena Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
No, no offense taken. I understand where you are coming from.

Ripping a page out of a Bible will not destroy the (ever enduring) Word of God. It's a pretty fruitless gesture. :shrug:

:iconzorazer0:
ZoraZer0 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
true, but its trying to rip the page out to hide from the truth if you ask me

and god is very specific about what will happen to those who try to change the word of god
