Sir Christopher Lee, a veteran actor, died at the age of 93 in London’s Chelsea and Westminster hospital on Sunday. He had been treated for heart and respiratory problems for the past three weeks. His wife, Lady Lee, decided to postpone public announcements until she had the chance to notify family and close friends. They were married for more than 50 years.

Sir Christopher Lee started his career way back in the 1940’s, with the 1958 movie Dracula making him a star. It wasn’t until 15 years ago that his career really flourished. He is best known for his brilliant performances in The Wicker Man (1973), The Man With The Golden Gun (1974), as well as The Lord Of The Rings trilogy and the second and third part of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, which introduced him to younger audiences.

He was knighted in 2009, and his one remaining ambition was to work with Clint Eastwood, he stated in 2011. The whole world grieves the loss of this great actor, and celebrities are expressing their condolences and paying tributes on social media.
