Happy Birthday Christopher Lee: Epic Badass



Happy Birthday Christopher Lee (one of my favorite actors) Lee has performed roles in 266 films since 1948 making him the Guinness book world record holder for most film acting roles ever. He was knighted in 2009 and received the BAFTA Fellowship in 2011. He is now 89.

If we could time travel, I would have Christopher Lee in his prime playing Solomon Kane.

Runner-up would be Peter Cushing in his prime.

Yeah, he's amazing. He's got a scar on his knuckles from a sparring accident he got into with Errol Flynn like 50 years ago.

And that's before his career really took off.

Great actor.
