Acting Legend Sir Christopher Lee is Dead.
British actor, Sir Christopher Lee, famous to several different generations for countless roles including Count Dracula, Lord of the rings and Stars wars alike, has died.
He passed away last Sunday (June 7) at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, aged 93.
Late Lee was being treated for heart failure and respiratory problems at the hospital.
Lee’s legacy speaks for itself, with credits in an enormous wealth of movies and wide-ranging genres. For some, he’s best known for playing Dracula in the Hammer Horror films. For others, it’s his role as Bond villain Francisco Scaramanga in “The Man with the Golden Gun” that comes immediately to mind.
Younger fans likely know Lee best as the cruel Count Dooku (alias Darth Tyranus) in two of the “Star Wars” prequels, as well as the equally traitorous wizard Saruman the White in the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” franchises.
However you knew him, know that Lee was a rare talent with an impact matched by few living actors.
