I’m still crying, everyone. I still can’t believe that Christopher Lee is dead. And to make matters worse, he was one of the most versatile actors of our time, starting in over 200 movies (including those horror movies that kept an entire generation from going to bed), and even playing the part of Saruman twice in The Lord of the Rings.

And that’s not all he did.

He was Dracula, Frankenstein, the mummy, Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Rasputin, Count Dooku, and so many other characters that we know.

He met J. R. R. Tolkien and the men who killed Rasputin.

He put out a heavy metal album. At the age of 90.

(Suck on that, Chuck Norris!)

All of you who watched his movies, let’s have a moment of silence for one of the greatest actors who ever lived.
