Sir Ian McKellen Gave Some Hilariously Wise Words To A Grade School Class

Sir Ian McKellen seems like one cool guy. Aside from his iconic roles from the great Gandalf to the villanious Magneto, his sense of humor sometimes supersedes his talent as an actor in my opinion. And it’s this video that was posted today by the Chew Valley School where McKellen stopped for a moment to lend some wisdom to a gathering of students outside of the school’s library that makes it official: Ian McKellan is awesome.

And if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, you’ll love his wise words far more than most.

After asking the students “In preparation for your examinations, if you don’t do your revision properly, do you know what will happen?” And with a student replying with “What,” McKellen screams out his iconic line “YOU. SHALL. NOT. PASS.” Awesome.

You can’t beat a Gandalf line drop from the man himself, beard or no beard. It certainly doesn’t happen every day, let alone for a school yard of children. I just can’t help but wonder if I would’ve paid more attention in math class had they used a British accent. Probably.
