R.I.P. Sir Christopher Lee


R.I.P. Sir Christopher Lee

Count Dooku

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.

RIP Sir Lee. You will be missed.

Also for a fun fact Sir Christopher Lee was in a Heavy Metal band in his 90's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlemagne:_By_the_Sword_and_the_Cross

Not bad stuff actually. Truly a man of many talents.

This is sad news. RIP.

There is no death, there is the Force. Rest in peace.

RIP. Personally, I'm devastated. I grew up watching Hammer Horror movies, and first fell in love with his rich, alluring and commanding voice as Scaramanga. First Bond movie I ever saw. I always depicted my fictional works narrated in his voice. Amazing and versatile actor <3

No death, but the Force. o/ RIP.

Commemorating as the master and practitioner of Makashi Lightsaber form in Star Wars as Count Dooku. Very sad to hear that. Rest in Peace.

Rest In Peace Sir Christopher. You gave us your all and that will do, you've earned your rest good sir.

Force be with you, Always.

Rain is falling heavy today... T-T... Not a cloud in the sky, but so much rain.

A master has left us. Rest well my friend. You've earned your vacation away from the evil of this planet

I salute you with my saber

R.I.P. Count Dracula Dooku

And now his watch has ended. :(


I should warn that this is a bit of a tearjerker, but it feels appropriate :(
