Lee is 87 and has made over 250 film and TV appearances. Arise Sir Christopher!

Coincidentally, the latest SFX special is on sale completely dedicated to vampires, with features on the top screen vampires and Hammer. Naturally, Sir Christopher in there (although he was just plain Christopher Lee when we went to press). Find out more here .
