My dear friends, I wanted to open a new thread and I hope that Juan won`t tell me off for doing that...
As we all know(the whole world knows it, I hope!), Mr Lee is a fantastic actor and a fabolous singer as well, I love this deep voice!
But there is something else I am very impressed of, another talent I noticed when I was just a 10-year-old girl - his knowledge in foreign languages! Well, I am happy to speak German and a bit of English...I know some words in French, but that`s it. How many languages does Mr Lee speaks? 6?7? Or even more? I think I read something about 8...but I am sure that Juan knows it much better!
People are impressed by very different things..acting, singing, painting, and much more - I was always fascinated by people who can speak more than one language, even more than 2 or 3. Isn`t that unbelievable? Such a great talent, and a wonderful gift as well. You can go wherever you want and the people do understand you. You can talk to everybody, no matter if he/she is English, Spanish, French, Italian..there are no language barriers anymore! And of course, it also helps a lot in the world of business and in the world of ACTING!
I know that might be strange for you, that I care for something like that, but I remember my childhood days, when I saw Mr Lee in a magazin, for the first time. I thought he was sooo good-looking (and I was 10 years old, haha!), and I started to read. It took a little longer before I could manage to watch my first "Christopher Lee movie", but I noticed his special talent for languages at once - even before I experienced him as a brilliant actor.
Yes, I was very impressed by a wonderful man, with so many talents - and of course, I am still impressed. But there seems to be much more than Mr Lee, the beloved film star - he is excellent in so many things and I adore him also for speaking so many languages! Once I heard him speaking German, and of course, one of my favourite songs" THE MAGIC OF THE WIZARD´S DREAM" is also recorded in German. And he does sound sooo perfect, so less accent.My ex-husband lived in Germany, for so many years and he was quite good in speaking German(well, he still is), but he never lost that "kind of accent" which I love, by the way. But Mr Lee sounds nearly perfect, wow!
Congratulations for that, Mr Lee, you are fantastic, in so many ways!There should be much more people of your kind, but I think that is impossible, because you are inimitable!
Thanks so much that you are what you are!!
and sorry..for that long boring story...
