It was sadly announced today that Sir Christopher Lee passed away. He had actually passed away on the weekend, but the news was not officially announced until today so that family members could be informed of it first.
To Star Wars fans such as us, we all know him from his role as Count Dooku. While I am not fond of many aspects of the prequels, his turn as Dooku was one of the few bright spots in those movies. However, many of us also know him from one of his many other roles, including Dracula and Saruman from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. He had numerous other roles of course, but way too many to list. On top of that he worked with the SAS during World War II, become a Knight and even released a few Heavy Metal albums. He pretty much did it all.
If you're not familiar with his work outside of the "big" stuff, then go check it out now! Great way to celebrate his memory.
