Biography – A Short Wiki

Sir Christopher Lee was an English actor and singer who had a net worth of $25 million at the time of his death in 2015. Christopher Lee was probably best known for playing a number of villains in many popular and profitable movies. Notable roles included Francisco Scaramanga in “The Man with the Golden Gun”, Saruman in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and Count Dooku in the final two films of the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy.


After being turned down by film producer Josef Somlo, Lee was signed to a seven-year contract with the Rank Organisation. In 1947, he made his film acting debut in the Gothic romance “Corridor of Mirrors.” Lee mostly played supporting and background characters in his early acting years. He had an uncredited appearance in Laurence Olivier’s “Hamlet” in 1948, and played a Spanish captain in 1951’s “Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N.” Another uncredited part came in the historical epic “Quo Vadis,” in which he played a chariot driver. A bigger role came in 1952, when Lee portrayed French painter Georges Seurat in John Huston’s “Moulin Rouge.”

Personal Life

In the late 50s, Lee got engaged to Henriette von Rosen. However, not long before the wedding, Lee called off the engagement over financial insecurities. Later, in 1961, Lee wed Danish painter and former model Birgit Krøncke; they had a daughter named Christina two years later.
