Ian McKellen to present Cate Blanchett honor at London Film Festival

McKellen announced that he will be giving a lifetime achievement award to Cate Blanchett on Saturday at the London Film Festival. He said they became close friends while shooting the three “Lord of the Rings” blockbusters.

“While she was making those movies, she was running the State Theater in New South Wales with her husband,” he said with astonishment and admiration. “She was acting, directing, producing. She’s another powerful woman in the theater.”
