The finest of the finest and a true legend.

I read somewhere that he used to read Lord of the Rings at least once a year.

Evil has never been so classy! I agree, the passing of a legend.

RIP Christopher Lee. What a voice! A true legend Smile

I read about him reading Lord of the Rings once a year so you didn't imagine that. Sad day.

Blimey. Over 200 films (not counting TV appearances) spanning almost 70 years. That's some career.

And I never knew he was in the SAS and spoke so many languages.

Hopefully we can look forward to some of his classics over the coming weeks - so many but The Wicker Man springs to mind.

RE: RIP Sir Christopher Lee

He certainly had an amazing life and career, and left a great legacy. It's great that he got to appear in the LOTR movies, after being a fan for such a long time.

A long life well-lived. May he rest in peace.

He was one of the few people who could make being a baddy look like the occupation of a gentleman. There's nobody left like that.

That's a great line, Kath. I think he would like that!
