Ian Mckellen net worth: Sir Ian Mckellen is an English actor who has a net worth of $55 million. Ian Mckellen is one of the acclaimed thespians of the British stage and screen. Ian Mckellen has gone through unexpected difficulty as he translated his immense talents to film and television. Having emerged from the prestigious University of Cambridge, he made his professional debut in a 1961-stage production of A Man for All Seasons. The following decades he spent amassing an impressive resume and accumulating awards. Thus, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1991 for his achievements on the stage. But so far, he has only had few appearances on the screen, including several British made-for-television movies and several under-performing movies. Deciding to be the creator of his own luck, Mckellen went on to produce and star in a 1930s-set adaptation of Richard III (1995). His incredible portrayal of the murderously scheming king led to an Oscar-nominated turn in Gods and Monsters (1998). Glad that Hollywood finally took notice, Mckellen could be seen in huge blockbusters, including all three installments of The Lord of the Rings (2001-03), X-Men (2000, 2003, 2006) and The Hobbit (2012-14) franchises. Odd as it may sound, he reached his career peak in his sixties, when his work has been confirmed by multiple Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, two Academy Award nominations, and five Emmy Award nominations.
