Hannibal Lecter and Gandalf twirl lightly between turns and smiles, until the former smacks a kiss on the latter’s cheek. This is not a crossover between Hannibal And The Lord of the Rings, but of a real scene immortalized in a video by the actress Salma Hayek and published on Instagram by one of the two protagonists of the film and the history of cinema, Anthony Hopkins. “Today I celebrate my dear friend, Ian McKellen, and his indestructible spirit… I love this man,” wrote the actor in the caption, which continues with a thank you to the improvised director. The post was flooded with enthusiastic comments from fans, including those from colleague Pedro Alonso O’ Choro, who plays Berlin in The paper house and who in turn received compliments from Hopkins (“Thank you, I love your work”), and from pop star Kylie Minogue.

A BAD ACCIDENT FOR IAN MCKELLEN

Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen met on the set of The Dresser, adaptation of the play of the same name. As told by McKellen, they had both been part of Laurence Olivier’s company when he directed the National Theater in London, but they had not become friends at the time. On June 17, the 85-year-old actor was hospitalized following a bad accident that occurred during a production of Players Kings at the Noel Coward Theater in London, where he performed a fight scene as John Falstaff. McKellen lost his balance, fell from the stage and screamed in pain, startling spectators. After being helped by doctors, he is now on the mend. It is not clear whether Hopkins’ video was shot before or after the incident, but it is certain that McKellen appears in excellent shape in the images.
