Christopher Lee, RIP

Losing Ron Moody was sad enough, but there aren't really the words to describe the tragic loss to the entertainment world that is the death of Sir Christopher Lee today at the age of 93


Regular readers of this blog will know how much respect in and enjoyment I had from Lee's screen presence. The man was nothing short of a cinematic legend.

Terrible news.

RIP

  1. Such a shame, he was a phenomenal guy and obviously had an amazing life.

    On one of the Lord of the Rings documentaries someone mentioned that Peter Jackson was directing him in how to sound and act when Christopher Lee's character is stabbed in the back, and he just turned around and explained that he was perfectly aware of what that sounded like after his time during the war!

    1. Yes indeed! He was in the SAS too so I can imagine he saw quite a lot of that!
