It was sad for me today to open up my news feeds and see that Sir Christopher Lee had passed. To honor him I am going to post and link to some better articles and pictures that way more express my respect for this man than I ever could.
Thank you Sir, thank you for everything.
The Mary Sue’s Carolyn Cox wrote a wonderful tribute: Lord of the Rings and Star Wars Star Sir Christopher Lee Passes Away at 93. The UK Telegraph had this tribute: Sir Christopher Lee dies at 93. You can read about his acting career on IMDB.
I shall end with Ms. Cox’s excellent subtitle for her article. I think it sums up Sir Lee’s passing perfectly: Lay down your sweet and weary head/Night is falling/You’ve come to journey’s end.
I feel certain Lee and Pratchett are enjoying themselves on the other side.
Mildred: In Addition – Mildred, my CFR buddy sent me this wonderful link that I just had to add: That time Christopher Lee, former Nazi hunter, told Peter Jackson what a man sounds like when he’s stabbed in the back. OMG. Sir Lee, thank you so much for hunting Nazis. You rock!
