Both George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy have commented on the sad passing of Sir Christopher Lee who died last Sunday age 93.
“Christopher was a great British actor of the old school. A true link to cinema’s past and a real gentleman. We will miss him.”
“Christopher brought a grace and gravitas to the many roles he’s played over a rich and expansive career. His performance as Count Dooku in Episodes II and III remains a highlight of the Star Wars saga, and we have been so privileged and honored to count him among our family. Christopher was a gentle soul and deeply adored by fans, and we will miss him dearly.”
