The Guardian reports that Sir Christopher Lee has passed away at the age of 93 after being hospitalized for respiratory problems and heart failure. He passed away on Sunday, but wife wanted to inform family members before making the news public.
Lee was cherished by movie fans for a wide range of roles that included Dracula, Count Dooku in Star Wars Episode II and III and, of course, Saruman in the LOTR series. He’s also known for his involvement in heavy metal music, with his most recent single launching this past Christmas.
Needless to say, Lee is a legend and he will be greatly missed.
