CHRISTOPHER LEE R.I.P.

Sad news today in the Spy Vibe world. Actor Christopher Lee passed away at the age of 93. Famous for his many great villain roles, Lee was a cousin to Ian Fleming and played 007's nemesis in The Man With the Golden Gun (1974). Co-star Roger Moore sent Twitter messages out today to family and fans expressing his sadness. Christopher Lee expressed a great love for acting and worked steadily between 1948-2015. He was preparing a new project at the time of his death. We'll miss his deep voice and great presence. The actor was often asked about his wartime experiences and whether he was a spy, to which he answered, "Let's just say I was in Special Forces and leave it at that. People can read into that what they like." Celebrate Christopher Lee's life with some of the great performances from his careerThe Wicker Man (1973), Horror of Dracula (1958), Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), Gormenghast (2000), The Blood of Fu Manchu (1968), The Castle of Fu Manchu (1969), and The Avengers TV episodes Never Say Die (season 5 disc 4) and The Interrogators (season 6 disc 5). You can also sit with Lee and hear about his life as an actor in The Many Faces of Christopher Lee (1996). I'm a bit pressed by deadlines today, but Spy Vibers can learn more about Christopher Lee, Ian Fleming, and Spying over at our fellow agent's site, Artistic License Renewed. Below: Lee with Ursula Andress (Dr. No, Casino Royale, The 10th Victim) in 1973 from Getty Images. The pair starred together in the 1965 classic, She.
