Christopher Lee, RIP

Gone at 93.

Legendary British actor Sir Christopher Lee has died after being hospitalized for respiratory problems and heart failure. He was 93. Lee, who played Dracula in a series of classic Hammer horror films and was Saruman in the Lord Of The Rings and Hobbit movies, among many other iconic roles, passed away on Sunday at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. ...

Apparently no actor goes on forever, even when it seems like they do. Even when they're a fixture during childhood, young adulthood, and old adulthood.

Mr. Lee performed in top-flight films decade after decade. He also sang, also did voice work in Alice In Wonderland (the Tim Burton version) and Corpse Bride. He was still working at the time of his death.
