Ian McShane to announce shock retirement from acting?

McShane created a stir on Saturday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Sad news for McShane fans. Speculation had been rife that the British actor best known for his roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides or Deadwood, will announce his retirement from acting, at age 79, with immediate effect.

UPDATE 05/12/2021 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Being an actor isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actor-director-producer just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Saturday evening, #ThankYouIan was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouIan.”
