All my life I have been fascinated with movies, but few actors/actresses actually grab my attention enough to watch films specifically for them. However, this is not the case with Mr. Lee. Growing up I've watched anything I could find with him appearing in it; even as a guestshot. What I've always admired about him (and his characters) is that no matter how angry or irritated his characters got they always gave the impression of "calm under fire". It is due to him and his presence that I've lived my life in that same way. It has taught me patience above all else.
One of my dreams has been to see him act live in a play or some such, but unfortunately I have had neither the means nor opportunity available to me. I'm a huge horror fan, but became an even bigger Christopher Lee fan thoughout the years. Thoughout all his works I've had the pleasure of witnessing, he takes each and every role to heart. He literally becomes the character he portrays and becomes them.
I laugh when I think about it but I didn't think I'd ever see him playing a part in a heavy metal band's song. Once again, even for just the spoken lines his presence; I feel, was overdominating the band itself (LOL).
I could go on forever and ever about his many works and about how much I admire him. But the greatest praise I have for him is the fact that I have had the great fortune of living in the same time period of in my opinion one of the greatest icons of our time.
At this time I cannot think of any other way to express my admiration for him and his great many works except by saying this... Simply AWESOME!
I truly thank you for all the wonderful characters you've brought to life over the years and the ones yet to come. Most of all, I thank you for being "you".
