Gandalf casts a spell over London store

Veteran film star Ian McKellen, who plays Magneto in the X-Men movies, proved a magnetic draw at a computer store's latest Meet the Actor event.

Ian McKellen, seen here at Apple's Regent Street branch sporting a stylish white-patterned scarf , took centre stage at the London venue on Tuesday.

Sir Ian spoke at length about his latest role as Sherlock Holmes for the new movie Mr Holmes.

The award-winning actor teams up again with Bill Condon, director of Gods & Monsters, for the film.

Sir Ian, who has enchanted millions with his portrayal of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings wizard Gandalf, plays a Holmes with a twist. This time the Baker Street detective is real instead of a literary invention.

Old age is one of the movie's themes. But Sir Ian made light of his 76 years to look youthful and dashing in a combo that included a black dinner jacket and purple shirt.
