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.
