Worth watching for the clip montage alone, here is Christopher Lee getting his BAFTA fellowship, long overdue in my view.

Watching it reminds me of watching Peter Cushing on Jim'll Fix It not long before he died. He's so thin and frail. I haven't got the words at the moment to describe how sad that makes me feel. For the last twenty years Christopher Lee's barely aged, and then suddenly... :(

For more eloquent comment, see this post by [personal profile] magister. And have a drink to the sexiest voice in acting - he's still there, but watching that, I don't think he will be for much longer.

Oh, this is indeed sad (and I think Kevin Spacey thought the same). *blinks away a few tears*

Aww, he's getting up there, isn't he? He still has an awesome voice if he doesn't have that spring in his step anymore

I keep thinking now that Dooku is channeling Yoda.

Very overdue indeed. Fancy watching Wicker Man or some such this w/e?

Gosh, yes - I see what you mean about the frailness. It looked like an enormous effort for him to get up there at all. :-( I'm still very glad he had a reason to, though.

Time really seems to have caught up with him all of a sudden. It makes me wonder if he has some illness that he's keeping quiet about. It's very sad. :(

well, he is 88. :-( i know it's not fair, just saying THAT as an excuse... but there it is. he's also doing some filming/voice work at the moment. it's hard work.

his body is frail, but he's still kicking and taking care of his health by not overexerting himself. heck, John Mills went blind and he was still acting.
