Top Ten Christopher Lee Quotes

PositronWildhawk
My tribute to one of the most legendary British actors of all time. Whether you're seeing him as Dracula, Saruman, Count Dooku or Scaramanga, or just himself, you'll be gripped by his personality and drama. RIP Sir Christopher Lee (1922-2015).

The Top Ten

1 There are many vampires in the world today... you only have to think of the film business.
2 I think that - apart from the fields of science and medicine - we live in an age of decline. Look at the world. There is decline in morals, ideals, manners, respect, truthfulness: just about everything, in fact.
3 To be a legend, you've either got to be dead or excessively old.
4 In my opinion--and I think I know as much if not more about Bond than anyone, particularly about the characters on whom Ian Fleming told me Bond was based--Pierce Brosnan was by far the best and closest to the character.

Pierce Brosnan is my favourite Bond actor; he's just as sharp and serious, yet witty and surprising, as his character needs to be. Even in some of the Bond films that were deemed the worst, he brought enough life into them for me to like them as much as the Connery classics. - PositronWildhawk

5 A real actor has to have an awful lot of imagination, and I do have a great deal.
6 I was once asked what I thought was the most disquieting thing you could see on the screen and I said, "An open door."

This quote is actually pretty good. And clever too. - cosmo

That's a great quote. - Therandom

7 When the Second World War finished I was 23 and already I had seen enough horror to last me a lifetime. I'd seen dreadful, dreadful things, without saying a word. Seeing horror depicted on film doesn't affect me much.
8 I prefer to watch the old movies. The film stars of today, in my opinion, don't compare with their predecessors. The best are very good, but the last giant of cinema, I think, was Bette Davis. One actor I admire, who could become a giant, is Johnny Depp.
9 I think acting is a mixture of instinct, imagination and inventiveness. All you can learn as an actor is basic technique.
10 Please don't describe me as a "horror legend." I moved on from that.

The Contenders

11 I associate heavy metal with fantasy because of the tremendous power that metal music delivers.

Most of his fans are still unaware of his alternate career as a cult heavy metal singer. - Metal_Treasure
