I was born Melinda Sue Orton in Petersburg, Virginia, U.S.A. on 3 October 1955. The youngest of two girls, I was raised in a rural area and enjoyed lots of solitude. Christopher Lee's vampire movies were my favorites. Being alone so much, I enjoyed fantasy, adventure shows, etc and even today, I still enjoy his horror movies. He was THE VERY BEST VAMPIRE of all time!!!
Today, I am happily married and have one son, Matthew, and two grandsons, Damien and Joseph. My husband is amused when I put on one of Mr. Lee's movies and knows he should not interrupt me. Hee Hee!!!!
I also loved his performance in "The Man With the Golden Gun" and his role in Lord of the Rings. I am amazed that a man who is so very kind can play such evil roles!!!! I have heard it said that playing an "evil" part is more fun than playing a "good" part.
Though I have visited England four times in the past, I have never traveled to Northumberland where my mother's people are from. (Her maiden name is Seale.) Hopefully, some time in the future, I will go there. Does anyone know much about the Seale family of Northumberland? Any info would be appreciated. Hello to everyone and take care!
