…and it’s about time! At the grand age of 87 the man who brought Dracula, Count Dooku and Saruman to life was knighted at Buckingham Palace yesterday by Prince Charles for his services to drama and charity. Lee has appeared in over 250 films and also holds the record for most sword fights on screen.
Here’s a video of the event which also shows Lee talking about gaining the knighthood, his career, and the state of current horror movies:
Sir Christopher Lee will be the voice of The Jabberwock in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland which will be released next March.
