Hello There,A wonderful Sunday night Monday Morning to you all.Ok,I have a question  for you guys.I know Ian MCKellan (Gandalf) is a "Sir".I wonder if Christopher Lee(Saruman),Ian Holms(Bilbo),and I guess John Noble(Denathor) are all "Sirs"as well since each Actor has been in the business For a long time and also I believe they all come from England.I have been wondering about that for some time.Deenan or anyone else know about that?
                                                      Thanks,
                                                          Mimma

Hi,

I have found this for you

The British honours system is a means of rewarding individuals' personal bravery, achievement, or service to the United Kingdom. The system consists of three types of award: honours, decorations and medals:

    * Honours are used to recognise merit in terms of achievement  and service;
    * Decorations tend to be used to recognise specific deeds;
    * Medals are used to recognise bravery, long and/or valuable service and/or good conduct.

All for you to read here

Ian Holm, like Ian McKellen is a 'Sir'.  So it's Sir Gandalf and Sir Bilbo

I was quite surprise when I found out Ian Holm was a Sir, because he's not referred to as Sir Ian Holm, whereas Ian McKellen is always referred to as Sir Ian McKellen
