Today we lost a true great. Sir Christopher Lee has passed away at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital due to respiratory issues and heart failure. This is a massive tragedy. There will never be another genre actor as prolific and unique as Christopher Lee.
Here are some moments from this incredible actor’s amazing career:
My personal favorite Christopher Lee story is that he allegedly knew when he was out of focus during filming. He apparently would tell DPs that he needed to adjust his mark due to the positioning of the camera and the focus of the lens. Word is that he had spent so much time on set, that he knew exactly when he was off. That’s just amazing.
RIP Sir Christopher Lee
