I know you are very busy, but I would like to hope that you will find the time to read this letter. Out of respect for you and your valuable time, I will try to be brief.
I grew up with three brothers. There was a gap of ten years between myself and my youngest brother, Alex. I was a good sister and I took him to see all The Lord of the Rings films when he was small and continued to take him to see The Hobbit films when they were released. His favorite character was Gandalf. He had a Gandalf hat and Gandalf’s sword, Glamdring. He was still debating with himself on which one of Gandalf’s staffs to purchase when he was killed suddenly in a car accident a few months ago.
My parents gave Glamdring to me, because it was his most beloved sword. I look at it every day and it reminds me of the love we shared for Middle-Earth and the love he had for your character. We had been making plans to travel to England this summer and I had promised him that if you were filming there, we would try to find you so that he could meet you. I hope someday to meet you, so that I can at least partially fulfill the promise that I made to him.
The main point of this letter is to tell you how incredibly grateful I am to you for bringing to life the character of Gandalf and for being an amazing individual. I just wanted you to know that your character was so deeply admired by my 19 year old baby brother and he was really looking forward to watching The Battle of the Five Armies. He also enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and I know he would have been excited to see your new upcoming film, where you take on the character yourself.
I simply want the opportunity to express my gratitude, so I hope this letter does indeed find its way to you. Again, thank you so much for bringing so much joy to his life and to mine as well.
With Love and Respect,
