The star of the movie “Lord of the Rings” was planning to return to the role of a war wizard in the near future, but he surprised his fans with sad news. He will have to give up his favorite job, at least for a while.

The 85-year-old said his injuries were slowly healing but doctors had advised him to avoid exertion for the foreseeable future. “I was looking forward to bringing Player Kings to theatre audiences but I can be sure that with David Semark playing Falstaff the production will continue to be equally dazzling,” McKellen said, according to the Mirror.

The actor will not be on stage for at least a month. Let’s remember that the incident happened two weeks ago. McKellen played in a production of William Shakespeare’s work. He fell off the stage during the performance. The actor was taken away by ambulance. After a while, McKellen’s friend Anthony Hopkins posted a video of them dancing and having fun together.
