Happy Birthday Christopher Lee!

He did a great job in Star Wars and I love the classic Dracula movies with him! Oh and Lord of the Rings.

A legend of an actor if any indeed is mr Lee.
I am curious though, you think he accepted the role as Dooku in memory and/or honour of Cushing?
Lee and Cushing did after all developed a good, close friendship over the years they acted against each other in the Dracula classics, with Lee as The Count and Cushing as Van Helsing, as well as many other films and he took Cushing's death rather hard.

A villain on screen, an honorable man in life is indeed Cristopher Lee.

I believe he did accept the role of Dooku in honor of Cushing. They were very good friends and they each had a great amount of respect for eachother. Cushing and Lee are some of the greatest actors ever.

And let's not forget his not-so-famous role as an international super-spy during WWII. No joke:

If anything this list proves that Star Wars is full of real-life bad@sses.

Dude may have very well been one of the inspirations for James Bond. Ironic since he would later play the role of famous Bond villain, the Man With the Third Nip... I mean Golden Gun. I'm also now of the realization that he could have totally killed Roger Moore, Yoda, Gandalf, or anyone else for that matter, if he had really wanted to.

Happy Birthday Sir Christopher Lee!

I believe he also performed (and posed for the cover) on a European heavy metal album...

What does this have to do with SWTOR?

Probable should move this to the off topic forums IMO.
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

Possibly.

But back on topic:

Happy (belated) Birthday, Sir Christopher Lee.

Here's to many more.

This is actually the OFF TOPIC forums about Star Wars itself, not the game. Christopher Lee was one of the few good points about the Prequels. The Man gave the Sith some much needed Class where there really wasn't much before. Hope he lives another 90 years!
