    Was literally just speaking to my mum about this. I loved LOTR & Star Wars, I didn't realize how old he was when playing those parts.

    just look at his resume

    Christopher Lee enlisted in the Royal Air Force in 1940, where he worked as an intelligence officer
    specializing in cracking German ciphers
    In North Africa he was attached to the Long Range Desert Patrol, the forerunner of the SAS
    After working with the LRDP, Lee was assigned to the Special Operations Executive - better known as
    Winston Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare - a group that did shit like lead a twelve-man
    assault that destroyed the German top secret nuclear weapons development facility
    decorated for battlefield bravery by the Czech, Yugoslavian, English, and Polish governments
    also belongs to three stuntman unions, does all of his own stunts
    is the Commander of the Order of St. John's of Jerusalem, a Knight Bachelor of the Order of the
    British Empire, and once received a medal from Mikael Gorbachev.

    and thats without 60year film history

    I enjoyed his films in his later years, but the early horror stuff is terrible!

    RIP!
