Actor Sir Christopher Lee passed away earlier this morning after suffering from heart and respiratory problems.
Star Wars fans will remember him for his role as Count Dooku in both Episode II and Episode III, or also recently as Saruman in the The Lord or the Rings and The Hobbit movies, however Christopher Lee was a well accomplished actor starting his career back in 1946. He became famous for his horror movies roles where he played The Creature in The Curse of Frankenstein, the mummy in The Mummy and had a continual role as Count Dracula in a number Dracula films.
In 2009 Lee was knighted, and it should also be noted that before his acting career, Lee fought in World War II serving the Finnish forces. He will truly be missed.
