A sad day to learn that one of my favorite actors has passed away, but heartening to know he led a full and long life. Sir Christopher Lee, along with his fellow Hammer colleague Peter Cushing, OBE, was one of the reasons I became a film fan and collector back in the 1970s. It was great to see him have a huge late career renaissance with appearances in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and two of the Star Wars prequels. I will miss him.
