Was upset about the deletion of his death scene in the theatrical version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). However, the scene was put back into the Extended Edition which is seen as the definitive version.

Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross (2010)

Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross is a symphonic metal concept album by actor and singer Christopher Lee. It was released on 15 March 2010. This is Lee's first full-length album, having previously worked with such bands as Rhapsody of Fire and Manowar. The album won the "Spirit of Metal" award from the 2010 Metal Hammer Golden God awards ceremony. The award was presented to him by Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi.

 

When you`re involved in a war it`s the old saying `if your name`s written on the bullet, there`s nothing you can do about it`. So you just banished it from your mind. Of course I was scared on some occasions and anyone who says they aren`t scared during an operation probably isn`t telling the truth. I know about six people who had no fear. Literally none. Whether that was due to a lack of imagination or because they`d conquered it, I don`t know. In fact one was Iain Duncan Smith`s father, who was one of my closest friends. But during a war, people are taught to kill and they have the blessings of the authorities to do so, so if it`s your life or somebody else`s, you want to be quite sure it`s not yours.

 

[Criticizing Hollywood`s obsession with youth]: "The problem today, and I think it`s a very dangerous one for the people concerned, is that there are quite large numbers of very young men and women from 18 to 30, and they are playing very large parts in huge films and they simply, through no fault of their own, don`t have the background and the experience and the knowledge to pull if off. And it`s dangerous for them because if they are in one failure after another, sooner or later people are going to say, `Well, he may have a pretty face but he`s not bringing the public in.` So many of these good-looking - sometimes even pretty - boys and girls are getting these good roles and it`s not fair on them. At some point it`s going to catch up."
