After high school, Lee tried to go to Eton, but did not succeed; interview, however, did not go to him for nothing – Christopher was able to communicate with the well-known writer of the time M. R. James. In his autobiography, Lee declared that James had on him a great influence; sixty years later, Christopher even have to play the role of the writer.
Anyway, I get a higher education at the College of Wellington where he still managed to get a scholarship for classical literature.
In June 1939, Christopher was present at the execution of Eugene Weidmann – the last public execution in the history of France.
In 1939th Christopher voluntarily joined the Finnish armed forces during the Winter War against the Soviet Union; However, as recognized by the Lee, the British forces had been in Finland a couple of weeks, during which time they were kept well away from the forces of the Army of the Soviets. Following Christopher was transferred to the Royal Air Force, and then – in exploration; during World War II, he worked in the ‘desert patrol’ – a special intelligence unit in force in North Africa. Christopher worked for some time in South Africa, where he was trained in the specialty of the pilot; vision problems, however, forced him to drop out. In the end, he took a post-cypher officer in one of the squadrons of the Air Force; In this capacity, he took Sicily and Italy. To a DVD-ROM to the film ‘Lord of the Rings’, in one of the audio commentary, he mentioned that has worked in the Special Forces; However, all the details of the work of these units are still classified as ‘top secret’. Soon after the war, Lee left the Air Force.
In 1942nd Lee signed a contract for seven years with the ‘Rank Organisation’; this happened after it opened an interest in acting craft. In 1948th played in the film by Christopher Laurence Olivier ‘Hamlet’ (‘Hamlet’); in the credits, however, his name does not appear. Over the next ten years, he starred in nearly thirty films – mainly militants.
The first horror film under the aegis of ‘Hammer’ featuring Lee was a picture of 1957, ‘The Curse of Frankenstein’ (‘The Curse of Frankenstein’); it Christopher played Frankenstein’s monster. A little later, Lee was able to work with by Boris Karloff in the film ‘Corridors of Blood’ (‘Corridors of Blood’); however, it is due to the role of Frankenstein by Christopher he soon was able to play the legendary Transylvanian vampire in the film of 1958 ‘Dracula’ (‘Dracula’). As published in the 1960th sequel, ‘Brides of Dracula’ (‘The Brides of Dracula’) Christopher did not participate; The reason for this is not exactly known – some say about the decision of the studio, the other – about the reluctance of the Lee hung up on this role. Anyway, the actor returned to the role of a vampire in “Dracula: Prince of Darkness’ (‘Dracula: Prince of Darkness’) 1965. The game was noticed – even taking into account the fact that the entire movie Dracula did not utter a word, confining only hiss.
In the seventies, the actor walked away from horror movies; from that moment it began to invite militants and adventure. In the same spirit, we continue to work to this day; from his most recent roles viewers remember the already mentioned Saruman and Count Dooku.
