It is sad to say that today, we received the report that on Sunday, June 7, 2015, the beloved Sir Christopher Lee has died due to respiratory issues. Lee's performance as Saruman in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, as well as his performance as Count Dooku in the prequel Star Wars films is forever marked in history and remembered in our hearts.
Lee died at the age of 93, so he lived a long life. Still, we will wish that he was still alive so that he can continue to impact the world through his movies. From minor appearances in Gremlins to leading a droid army in Star Wars, Lee's films will continue to be cherished by millions of fans around the world.
My condolences go out to Lee's family and friends. May he rest in peace.
