Sir Christopher Lee (1922-2015)

Christopher-Lee 279x300
For those who haven’t heard, Sir Christopher Lee passed away last Sunday.  He was a charismatic actor who played in major movies over diverse genres, including science-fiction (the Star Wars series), fantasy (Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit series), horror (The Wicker Man, The Devil Rides Outand many Dracula titles), action (The Man With The Golden Gun), and the list goes on.  He has 281 acting credits listed at IMDb.com so he pretty well covered the field.  I saw him perform live, in his 80s, and he was just as intense in person as in the movies.  His mind was sharp and his voice powerful. And it really says something when people still look forward to more performances when you are in your 90s. He will be missed.
