70s Drag race
The actual most interesting man in the world.
He was an intelligence officer during the Second World War.
The Carandinis, Lee’s maternal ancestors, were given the right to bear the coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire by the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. Cinemareview cites: “Cardinal Consalvi was Papal Secretary of State at the time of Napoleon and is buried at the Pantheon in Rome next to the painter Raphael. His painting, by Lawrence, hangs in Windsor Castle”.
Lee is a step-cousin of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond spy novels.
He has been married to the Danish model Birgit “Gitte” Kroencke Lee since 1961. They have a daughter named Christina Erika Carandini Lee, who married Juan Francisco Aneiros Rodriguez in July 2001. Lee is also the uncle of the British actress Dame Harriet Walter.
Contrary to popular belief, Lee does not have a vast library of occult books. When giving a speech at the University College Dublin on 8 November 2011 he said: “Somebody wrote I have 20,000 books. I’d have to live in a bath! I have maybe four or five.”
On the 27th May 2012, Lee celebrated his 90th birthday.
He has played a bad ass Dracula, A Bond Supervillian, Saruman in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Sith Lord Count Dooku.
He holds the record for appearing in the most motion pictures of all time. With an acting career that spans 7 decades.
He just turned 90 years old, and he is releasing a heavy metal album.
Christopher Lee really is the most interesting man in the world.
