Hail and Farewell to Sir Christopher Lee, who gave us such fantastic characters as Dracula, Scaramanga, Saruman and, of course, Lord Summerisle. He always demonstrated a deep understanding and respect for folklore, magic and the occult in his art, which captured the love and imagination of millions, both Pagan and non-Pagan alike.

May you Rest In Peace in the Summerlands.

    Last night WNYC-FM, our local NPR (National Public Radio) station, rebroadcast an interview with Lee from 1992. OMG! What a captivating voice and what a gentleman he was! The interviewer’s voice told us how charmed she was by his intelligent discussion with her of his early career and desire to take on just more than the roles he’s more commonly known for. At one point he came over to the U.S. to seek more opportunities even though he knew in the U.K. he’d have work. He sought to challenge himself and go beyond the roles he was known for because he loved his craft. He often referred to acting as an art and a craft. His love for it showed in every word.

    • He really was amazing – and yes, the coolest voice ever. I spent the whole morning today listening to recordings of him reading Edgar Allan Poe.
