I was saddened today to hear of the passing of one of the true legends of cinema. Sir Christopher Lee had been one of those actors that commanded the screen throughout his career, most notably playing Dracula for Hammer films in the sixties. In recent years he became a go-to actor for big name franchises such as Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, and his presence and powerful voice always made his roles memorable.
At 93 years of age, he was working almost up to his death and will be remembered I’m sure as one of the true greats up there was Charlton Heston, Kirk Douglas and the like.
