Maggie Smith is so down to earth, grounded, humble...and her humor somewhat dry and its practically impossible to do an impression of her but Sir Ian McKellan does it wonderfully and done in such a way that makes Maggie Smith even more endearing if that is possible and it a harmless bit of fun too. Sounds like Maggie doesnt want to be impersonated but as Bette Davis and Lucille Ball said...your not truly a legend until you have people impersonate you.

In 6 words or so you immediately recognize Maggie Smith. Sir Ian is such class act.

Even if Maggie Smith says that to you can you really get mad really really she's most likely kidding or she's just putting on the anger act to really make you want it more so guys who think he's being serious about her like seriously grow up

It's "pounamu", Sir Ian. Punami is something different.

Actually, he was nominated for his role in The Fellowship Of The Ring, that won only 4 Oscars over 13 nominations. The last movie of the trilogy, The Return Of The King, won all the 11 nominations.

We sinned, therefore we deserve God’s wrath.
But Jesus took all of our sins upon Himself
Jesus received 100% of God’s wrath upon Himself.
Jesus was crushed by The Father’s
Jesus satisfied The Father’s wrath that us sinners deserve.
Jesus was buried, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven.

Acts 16:31. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved”.
