Lee died on Sunday at 08.30 in the morning at Londons Chelsea Westminister Hospital. He have been there for a while, because of heart problems. Christopher is very much known from Lord Of The Rings triology films, where he played Saruman. He also had a role in the last Star Wars movie where he played Count Dooku. He have also played Dracula and the Frankenstein monster.
Christopher Lee celebrated his 93 year old birthday at the Hospital
This actor was together with his wife for more than 50 years. His wife Lady Birgitt Lee didnt want to go out with the message before she was fully certain that all in their family knew about that he is gone.
He will be remembered a lot for his acting, but also for his voice. A powerful acting voice. Distrita sends all the best wishes to Birgit Lee and he family. He did a wonderfull job and will be deeply missed by millions of Lord Of The Rings fans.
Here I found an interesting video of him, where he was talking to University College Dublin students in 2011
Social Media reactions
The net is now also full of positive, yet sad feelings. This man has an air of royalty or regalness about him many says, so even if he is gone. Christopher will be remembered as a very big icon. His wife is only 53 years old, so she can pass lots of knowledge of him in many years to come. I hope that I could ease the pain a bit by sharing this sad but important news to all that knew who he was. Thanks for everything that you have given the world.
