Ian McKellen, 85, hugs friend outside his home after spending THREE nights in hospital following accident


Sir Ian McKellen was pictured for the first time since he was injured in a fall from a West End stage a week ago.

The 85-year-old actor greeted a friend outside his home in London Monday, wearing a wrist support and holding his glasses in his hand as he was given a card.


Sir Ian was playing John Falstaff in a production of Player Kings at the Noel Coward Theatre last Monday when he lost his footing in a fight scene and fell from the stage.

After the incident, he was taken to hospital to receive treatment and the remainder of last Monday and Tuesday’s performances were cancelled to allow him to rest.

He had been expected to return for Wednesday’s matinee, but it was then revealed that the show would not return until Thursday with an understudy taking his place.

The production ended in London on Saturday with the understudy, but Sir Ian is expected to rejoin the cast when the play goes on tour – starting in Bristol on July 3.

He announced last Thursday that he was having ‘physiotherapy, light exercise and a lot of essential rest at home’ after three nights in hospital.
