McKellen turned 1.5 mn offer to officiate wedding as Gandalf

Los Angeles: Actor Ian McKellen turned down one and a half million dollar deal to officiate a wedding dressed as Gandalf - his famous character from “The Lord of the Rings”. The 77-year-old was asked to appear at the wedding of Napster founder Sean Parker, but he refused, reports “I was offered one-and-a-half million dollars to marry a very famous couple in California, which I would perhaps have considered doing, but I had to go dressed as Gandalf. So I said, 'I am sorry, Gandalf doesn't do weddings'," he said. However, the actor said he had no idea who was behind the offer. “He was a very rich man, that's all I know. I don't go dressing up - except in plays and things at places like this,” he said.
