Christopher Lee (1922 – 2015)

Born: Christopher Frank Carandini Lee
May 27, 1922

Christopher_LeeSir Christopher Lee had an astounding film career that spanned eight decades in which he appeared hundreds of films. Long known for his work in the Hammer Horror films, and his recurring role as Dracula, more recent fame came in his appearances in the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit films. He is credited in three films from the 1001 list, including Les Vacances de M. Hulot (1953), Horror of Dracula (1958), and The Wicker Man (1973), and a fourth for Hugo (2011) which appears in a more recent edition of the book (Klaus Ming June 2015).

    I remember when I saw Hugo. I hadn’t been aware that Lee was in the picture, but there’s the scene when Chloe Moretz’s character takes Hugo to the bookstore. A bookstore is the most magical place in the universe to her, and then we hear the bookseller’s voice (before we see him), and it’s That Voice, and you know she’s right — it is the most magical place in the universe.

      Indeed, little wonder he also did so much voice work for animation, video games and off screen roles.
