Sir Christopher Lee
(May 27, 1922 – June 7, 2015)

Christopher Lee has passed away at 93. He’s an icon to monster kids of my generation, thanks largely to the Hammer Dracula films. But to focus on those would do him a great injustice. He’s in a James Bond movie, some of the Star Wars things and The Lord Of The Rings series. That’s a popular culture Triple Crown that’s gonna be hard to beat. (He’s even on the cover of Paul McCartney and Wings’ Band On The Run album.)

If you want to get a thorough understanding what an actor can bring to a movie, watch Lee in anything. From the Dracula films to some late-70s, no-budget junk, his presence onscreen is incredible.
