Sir Ian McKellen stars as Sir Leigh Teabing, a central player in one of 2006's most anticipated films, The Da Vinci Code, based on Dan Brown’s controversial bestselling book. McKellen, who’s also in another huge '06 film – X-Men: The Last Stand - admits he took on the role of the wealthy Holy Grail fanatic without having first read Brown's novel.

Without giving anything away to those who haven't read the book, McKellen explained how he views his character in The Da Vinci Code: "[He's] someone who is hugely enthusiastic about the business of Jesus and Mary.
