RIP Christopher Lee

RIP Christopher Lee | Anakin And His Angel

The first thing I read this morning was the news that Christopher Lee, age 93, passed away on Sunday due to heart and respiratory problems. Immediately I began to think of some of my favorite films that he made better, including Count Dooku in Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith and The Clone Wars cartoon where he provided the voice for his character. Of course, he also played Saruman in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy and though I haven't seen any of his vampire films, his character Dracula is said to be one of his best. Christopher Lee was one of the highest grossing actors of all time and was known for his roles as villains. When you're so good at it, why not? Thank you, Christopher Lee, for gracing the screen with your presence. We'll always remember the incredible talent you bestowed upon us. Prayers to his wife of 53 years, Birgit, and his only child, Christina.
