Ian McKellen And Maggie Smith Have A Blast At Wimbledon

Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Maggie Smith enjoyed hanging out together at Day 9 of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

The two legends of the silver screen were spotted at center court, thoroughly engrossed in the action, sharing a pair of binoculars, and giving their best animated-GIF style reactions to the tense action unfolding in front of them.

In a dream “Lord of the Rings” meets “Harry Potter” mashup, Gandalf and Professor McGonagall sat side-by-side as they watched the intense men’s quarter-final match between Andy Murray and Sam Querrey.

Tennis is no Quidditch, but it’s captivating nonetheless.

But no amount of whooping and cheering from the veteran actors was able to will fellow Brit Murray to the win.

McKellen (78) and Smith (82) are long-time friends, having originally met in 1995 on the set of the movie adaptation of “Richard III.”
