Does this belong in 'The Afterlife'? Well, maybe...

For those of you living beyond the pond, out there in the grey havens, please take note that Christopher Lee died at age 93 in London (middle-earth).

No, he will not return - this man is an ex-Dracula, an ex-Saruman, and much more.

For those in need for consolation:

Purely coincidentally, I showed one of his movies (Gremlins 2) only last night!

In the early '90s, he appeared to have been doing a double act with Alan Rickman as the Brit of choice when Hollywood needed a supporting role sinister villain...

Always liked Lee as Dracula better so than Lugosi. Maybe because the Hammer Films were more Graphic and in Color also. First remember seeing him as a Kid watching "Horror of Dracula"(1958) Seemed like Lee and Peter Cushing were part of the modern Horror Film of the 60's that really captivated an audience...R.I.P.
