Sir Ian Mckellen rewards good Samaritan

[from Contact Music]

Lord of the Rings star Sir Ian McKellen was so grateful when a stranger handed his lost wallet back, he handed the good Samaritan two free theatre tickets.

McKellen mislaid his wallet, which contained $900 in cash, in London's Hyde Park. Fortunately for the 65-year-old, a passer-by noticed his ID and gave it to local police.

So a generous McKellen sent the person two tickets to see him play Widow Twanky in Aladdin, which is being put on at Kevin Spacey's Old Vic in the capital next month.
