VIDEO: Sir Ian McKellen Sits Down with Christiane Amanpour

Recently, award winning actor Sir Ian McKellen sat down with Christiane Amanpour in the Duke of York Theatre for a one on one interview. Currently, McKellen is starring in Shakespeare's King Lear. He sat down with Amanpour to discuss his career on stage and screen as well as his activism in the gay rights community.

Tender, brutal, moving and epic, King Lear is considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written.
