Oscar and BAFTA-nominated British actor Ian McKellen (“Gods and Monsters,” “The Lord of the Rings” franchise) is the latest British star to receive a jab of the Pfizer/BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine.

“It’s a very special day, I feel euphoric. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. I feel very lucky to have had the vaccine,” said the 81-year-old actor.
