Today has marked the end of an era. Our Gandalf (Ian Mekellen) finished his last scene on the Hobbit set today. It was obviously a very emotional time for the cast and crew working on this trilogy, Especially Peter Jackson, who, soon after finishing Gandalf’s final shot, posted this picture and its caption on Facebook.
“Seconds ago we finished our last shot with Gandalf. The end of an incredible adventure that began in 1999. I’m feeling very sad right now.”
“Adam Brown, who plays the Dwarf Ori added on Twitter”:
Ah yes, Ian McKellen really is a legend. From the moment in 1999 he first took the role as Gandalf, there was never any doubt in his ability to portray one of the most powerful beings in Middle-Earth. We love you, Ian! Now matter how many movies you star in, you will forever be Gandalf!
