Christopher Lee has died. The ninety-three-year-old British actor and author, at the beginning of his career portrayed villains, he was Count Dracula, The Wicker Man, gothic romance Corridor of Mirrors and starred in The Man with the Golden Gun, Saruman in The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars prequel trilogy. He sadly passed away following his hospital stay for respiratory problems and heart failure on Sunday at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, according to sources, he was known for his muscular intelligence with a staggering career

The decision to release the news days after was based on his wife’s desire to inform family members first. The couple had been married for over 50 years.

During his career, he also released a series of heavy metal albums, including Charlemagne: The Omens of Death.

Lee’s most famous role was playing Dracula, but he wasn’t pleased with how the character was treated.

“They gave me nothing to do!” he told Total Film in 2005. “I pleaded with Hammer to let me use some of the lines that Bram Stoker had written. Occasionally, I sneaked one in. Eventually, I told them that I wasn’t going to play Dracula anymore. All hell broke loose.”

In a 2012 interview, Lee spoke about his love of acting.

“Making films has never just been a job to me, it is my life,” he said. “I have some interests outside of acting – I sing and I’ve written books, for instance – but acting is what keeps me going, it’s what I do, it gives life purpose.”

Tom Hanks Son Wanted By Police Over Smashed Up Hotel Room

Chester ‘Chet’ Hanks is wanted by police. He is the son of actor Tom Hanks, and allegedly the British police are looking for him because of an alleged £1,200 worth of damage smashing up a hotel room following. He is a twenty-four-year-old rapper and reportedly he has caused,

“He asked the girls if they would join him in the bed, but they are not like that. So he started screaming and making a right noise. He saw some sprinkled make-up called banana powder and started asking ‘who’s got the coke?’ But nobody did drugs there.

“Then he started shouting that he was not going to share it with another man.

“Then all you could hear was this smashing and crashing. Next morning he was gone but the room was trashed. Everything was smashed and there was glass all over the floor.”

More on Hanks, he also reportedly said that since he was sixteen he has been battling substance abuse,

allegedly had his Instagram account suspended for using the n-word, hitting back in a separate post insisting he didn’t do anything wrong because he believes in “FREE SPEECH (sic).”

Regarding the hotel room drama – which Chester has reportedly rejected as “a slanderous bold-faced lie” – a Sussex Police spokesman said: “A guest has caused an estimated £1,200 of damage to a hotel room.

“We have been given the name of the suspect, a 24-year-old man from the USA. We are working with other agencies to try to trace him so he can be interviewed.”

More on Chester, he is from Los Angeles, California, he starred in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), Project X (2012) and Bratz, and he is the child of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
