Christopher Lee died last Sunday
Christopher Lee was the only actor I know of to play the all of The Big Three Monsters in movies; Frankenstein('s monster), Dracula, and the Mummy. He's also the only major film actor to have played both Sherlock Holmes and Holmes' brother Mycroft.
He passed away last Sunday and his family released that news today. I'll miss him.
Lee was often asked about his military service in World War 2, which was with a secret operations unit. In answer, he would sometimes lean in and say to the questioner, "Can you keep a secret?" When the person who asked responded 'yes', Lee would lean back and say, "so can I."
Whatever secrets Christopher Lee is taking with him, may they keep him well in what lies ahead.
