Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Bri­tish ac­tor Ian McKellen (left) says he en­joys a good fairy tale. That’s why he’s part of the film Beauty and the Beast, a live-ac­tion adap­ta­tion of the an­i­mated clas­sic. Ian, who plays Cogsworth The Clock in the film said that film’s direc­tor Bill Con­don was also the rea­son he came on board. “When a script comes to you in the mail from Bill, you say, ‘Yes’ be­fore you’ve read it. I en­joyed work­ing with him on Gods and Mon­sters and Mr. Holmes,” said Ian. He added, “While watch­ing Cocteau's La Belle et le Bête, I re­mem­ber the ex­cite­ment of the, al­beit, when the Beast sheds his mask and turns into the Jean Marais as the Prince.”
