Well, even at 90 years old, Sir Christopher Lee is still going strong. He has just completed filming for “The Hobbit” and is slated to be in the other two films, but this actor has done something awesome and unusual for his generation. He just released his heavy metal versions of famous Christmas carols of the “Little Drummer Boy” and “Silent Night”.
Lee who has been acting since 1946, is famous for his roles of Dracula, Saruman, Count Duko, and countless more. He has been named in the Top Best Actors of All Time as well as many other titles.
Many have been amazed at his wonderful career, and Johnny Depp paid homage to him and his many roles of Dracula when they cast him as the captain of the Demeter in the recent remake of the “Dark Shadows”.
He is a classically trained singer and this is not his first trek into the heavy metal music world. He released his first metal album in 2010 titled, “Charlemange: By the Sword and the Cross.”
Even at this age Sir Lee is not slowing down. He has four more movies set to premiere in the next few years.
