    That's tragic. He'll be missed for sure ! But his legacy will live on for many years, with the impressive cinematography he leaves behind for our viewing pleasure.

    Not only was he in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, he had actually met J.R.R. Tolkien in real life, been a fan of the books and had recorded Middle Earth songs with the Tolkien Ensemble.

    I can't remember how many times I have seen The Man with the Golden Gun...

    When I was a kid I used to confused the names of Christopher Lee and Christopher Reeve... Now both gone. :(

    Tragic? Not in the slightest. The man lived a rich, full life, kept doing what he loved right til the end, and had an incredible career.

    There are some people you'd swear death would be too scared to take. I hope I'm 1% as awesome when I'm elderly as he was.

    He will be missed, his Hammer films are some of the best horror movies around and even the worst of them were better for him being in them.

    I too just saw the news :(

    I don't care if he was 93, 23 or 293, death is always tragic.

    Sir Christopher must have had one of the most interesting lives of the last century. The word legend is not doing him justice. R.I.P.

    Sorry to see him go, but 93 is a good long life. Also, he enjoyed such a huge resurgence in his career with LOTR and Star Wars after doing so much crap during the 80s it's wonderful that he got to go out in top form.

    No disrespect to Lugosi, but I always thought Lee was the superior Dracula; the role I'll remember him for. That one shot of D with his fangs bared and the blood running down his face scared the hell out of me as a kid. Those old Hammer films are so watchable still. He and Cushing were a great team.

    Wasn't he a spy or something during the war as well? Not sure.

    Adios, Chris.

    What a man, what an actor, what a voice! I hope he's cracking jokes about death with the likes of Vincent Price... whatever afterlife he's gone to just became a lot more fun.

    Re: RIP Christopher Lee

    Commando, Actor, Heavy Metal Singer, Cousin Ian Fleming had him in mind when he created James Bond. still in Guiness as the tallest leading man, he man did it all. My favorite story about him for the "Badass" Factor is when he was discussing the Death of Saruman with Peter Jackson. He said "Do you know what a man getting stabbed in the back sounds like? Because I do." HE Should have been Dos XX "Most interesting man in the world"
    R.I.P. Good sir, when they made you they broke the mold.

    That's now up to 3 major roles gone from the Kingdom Hearts franchise this year alone (2 English, 1 Japanese). And his DiZ was so wonderfully ambiguous in if he was a good guy or a bad guy, too.

    I will never forget his performances growing up. The Man with the Golden Gun, his performances as Dracula... Jeez, I can't list all of his excellent roles over the years. R.I.P. Mr. Lee. :(
