Christopher Lee

Saturday, 27th May 1922 - Sunday, 7th June 2015
London
England


Tall, dark and gruesome as he has described himself, distinguished British actor enjoying a renaissance in his extremely long career.

11 June 2015: Upon learning of his passing, I cannot find the right words, but I think comedian Omid Djalli said it best:

"Scared the living daylights out of me for years. And I loved him for it."

You were much, much more than Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, Saruman and Count Dooku. Above all, you were a gentleman. RIP

-Dave W.
