From Dracula To Saruman – Sir Christopher Lee Dies Aged 93

June 11, 2015 by brennon

The amazing actor Sir Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93. Being well known for his Hammer Horror and massive screen roles that include the likes of Dracula, Scaramanga, Count Dooku in Star Wars and (my favourite) Saruman in Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit he was, and still is, a national treasure…

Saruman

While there is certainly a lot of sadness at his passing he had led a very full life and bought hours of joy to all who watched him. Being knighted for his services in 2009 and gaining a BAFTA Fellowship in 2011 are just some of the accolades he richly deserved.

He even tried his hand at a bit of music with some rather operatic sounding metal albums under his name. You can see one of them above!

Interestingly he also served in the Special Forces during World War II as well as his work in the RAF and more.

What is your favourite Christopher Lee movie?
