* Lee had served in the military during WusefulNotes/WorldWar2, and would bring his experience into the film whenever relevant. One of the most well-known examples is in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Return Of The King'''s [[DirectorsCut extended edition]], in which he is stabbed in the back by Grima Wormtongue. Peter Jackson had wanted him to make a particular scream when stabbed. Lee, however, informed Jackson exactly what sound a man stabbed in the back would make, and demonstrated it on camera in that scene.

While known primarily as an actor, Lee also trained as an operatic bass-baritone [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8W2fkhfFPc singer]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KPZJg5g7M8 Some things]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z93SdirnzTw you just can't make up.]] He came out with [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/01/christopher_lee_will_rock_your_face_off.php a metal album]], called ''[[Music/{{Charlemagne}} Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross]]''. (This had some personal significance for Lee: through his mother--[[BlueBlood an Italian countess]]--he could trace his ancestry to Charlemagne himself.) Oh, and he [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1263440/Dracula-star-Sir-Christopher-Lee-gets-taste-head-banging--age-87.html head-banged]]. The veteran actor said he often throws himself around to heavy metal. ‘I do head-banging every day,’ he said. ‘Exercising my neck muscles is good for my back. I can do it with or without music.' ''By the Sword and the Cross'' has a follow up called ''Charlemagne: The Omens of Death'', with a preview released on on May 27, 2012 (Sir Christopher's 90th birthday) and the full album was released on May 27, 2013. The release of his Charlemagne musical marked Christopher Lee as the oldest musician in the history of the metal genre. On his 92nd birthday, he released another album ''Metal Knight'' that uses metal covers of other songs to tell a story.

He was born on the same day as Creator/VincentPrice, and Creator/PeterCushing was born the day before. Pretty... spooky. He was [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever knighted]] on October 31, 2009 (that's right folks, Halloween). While this does not make him more excellent per se, it was most assuredly long overdue. Everyone, please say, Sir Christopher Lee.
