RIP Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee, whose LEGACY (not just a career), spanned so many years he amassed an amazing 281 acting credits on IMDB, has passed away at the age of 93. Younger audiences are likely familiar with him as Sauraman from the Lord of the Rings franchise, or Count Dooku from the Star Wars prequel trilogy, but his career includes numerous memorable roles.

After starting his career in 1946, Lee’s career really took off in 1958 when he had the opportunity to play Dracula in Horror Of Dracula. He would later also play The Mummy, adding to his Universal classic movie monster list. He became a horror movie staple, occasionally venturing out to do some voice over work, like in Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride or The Last Unicorn.
